St. Mary's Lions Letter
September 19, 2023
Dear St. Mary's Family,
It has been a great few weeks of testing for our students! They have shown dedication and determination in tackling their assessments, and we couldn't be prouder of their hard work. As we move forward, we will be diligently reviewing the results and working with our students to identify areas for intervention and enrichment. Once the data has been reviewed, we will share the results with you during Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences on Friday, October 27th.
By now you will have noticed your child bringing home his/her Student Planner. In it you will find homework assignments, spelling words, test dates and more. We ask that parents review daily and sign weekly. We believe that this is an effective way to communicate with parents in addition to teaching your child valuable life skills in time management and organization.
It's hard to believe our Bazaar and Gumbo Festival is right around the corner! We are excited to announce the theme for this year's school performances on Sunday, October 22nd: "So You Think You Can Dance!". Stay tuned for more details from your child's teacher, including costumes/attire and dance/song choice.
Beginning this Friday, September 22nd, the office will be closed from 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM to give all faculty and staff the opportunity to attend Mass with the school community. If you need to drop your child off during this time, please bring them to the church via the entrance off Rosedale Street.
Progress Reports go home this Friday, September 22nd.
RAFFLE TICKETS - EARLY BIRD DRAWING
Please continue to sell your raffle tickets! Our SECOND Early Bird drawing is this Friday, September 15th. We will have two drawings for two Kiddie Land wristbands (donated by Dr. Rasheida Bluiett)!
BAZAAR KING AND QUEEN DEADLINE
The deadline to register your child to run for King or Queen is this Friday, September 22nd.
We are excited to announce the release of our new spirit shirts! These shirts may be worn on Spirit Days and field trips. Please see the order form in today's Lions Letter. The deadline to order is October 10th.
