Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

September 13, 2021

Note from the Principal

Good morning and welcome to the first full week of school!

The students participated in a variety of activities last week to prayerfully commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001. I was a student at St. Mary of the Assumption when that occurred, so it brings back memories every year of the way our community and country united after unfathomable tragedy. A special thank you to Mrs. Pla for putting together a museum walk for our middle school students. If you are not already, please follow us on our social media to see pictures of the special events happening here at school, including this project.

Attached here are pictures from Mass with the Cardinal.

I have good news for many of our students who expressed sadness over the switch to Papa John's pizza. The manager has reached out and has offered to resume our contract for the rest of the year. So beginning tomorrow, our pizza Tuesdays will once again be catered by Papa John's.

Have a great week!

Mrs. Lewis
