Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

May 16, 2022

Note from the Principal

Happy Monday!


A huge thank you to our amazing gala committee on a job well done. It was so much fun dancing, eating, and socializing with many of you Saturday night. We hope to see even more of you next year!


This will be an exciting week here at St. Mary of the Assumption School. It is the last week of classes for our 8th grade students. While we are sad to see them go, we are excited to see all of the amazing things they will accomplish in high school and pray they always remember the academic and spiritual foundation established here by elementary teachers and friends.


Tonight, our band will be performing at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. We hope to see many of you there!


Tuesday afternoon will be the NJHS induction ceremony for all the new members.


Thursday is Field Day for all SMA students. Coach M is still looking for Virtus certified volunteers! If you are interested, please contact pmonfiston@stmaryum.org. Please see below for more information.


Part of Field Day is the MOVE-A-THON! Get your donations in and win prizes! www.mybooster.com



Friday is our special Candle Mass, during which the 8th grade students "pass the torch" of leadership to the 7th grade students. This tradition dates back over 25 years at SMA and is a wonderful farewell to our student leaders.


Have a blessed week,

Mrs. Lewis
