Spirit Hour Update

Hello SMG Families,

Your partnership with St. Maria Goretti School is important. One of the ways you demonstrate this partnership is through your contribution of SPIRIT hours. As Mrs. Rios stated at the beginning of the school year, your SPIRIT hours will be considered when making enrollment decisions for next year. If you are still in need of SPIRIT hours to meet your commitment, we have a few more opportunities for volunteers in May. If you are unable to meet your commitment, please contact the school to discuss a plan.

The deadline to turn in SPIRIT hours was Friday, May 12th to have them included on your final report. Final SPIRIT Reports for the year will go out May 17th. If you earn SPIRIT hours after May 12th, please submit those hours to the office before you leave the school so that your totals can be adjusted before I submit the final report to Mrs. Rios.

Please check our SignUp Genius page for opportunities to volunteer. We currently have the following needs:

· 4th of July Parade

· Field Day, May 25 – need supply donations

· Mass Welcome Table

· Summer project help – there are always projects that come up over the summer. If you would like to be contacted to help with these, please sign up.
