End of School Year Letter
Dear Parents / Guardians,
Here we are nearing the end of another amazing year! We are so very proud of our students and staff (and you, their families) for all of the amazing achievements that happened throughout the year.
As you read this, final exams are being studied for, report card comments are being prepared and will be available Wednesday, June 29th by 3pm. Student timetables are being blueprinted and will be available on PowerSchool in late August or for pick up on registration day. Course changes are able to be made in August or September.
Please remember to check your child’s PowerSchool account for additional school fees due to missing textbooks. If you are able to return your child’s textbook before June 29th, there is a book drop at the front door of the school. Fees will be removed from your account once the textbooks have been returned. Please note that no adjustments will be made to your child’s account over the summer break.
The school office will be open August 23-26, 9AM - Noon and 1:00 - 3:00 for school year business and inquiries by phone.
We look forward to the Fall when we will see you again for our next school year. More information about registration and staggered entry on August 30th and 31st will be sent out in late August from St. Mary’s.
To those students leaving St. Mary’s, especially our graduates, we pray for God’s blessings upon your lives as you head into another chapter of your life. For those students returning to St. Mary’s we can’t wait to see you as we continue our journey as a faith-filled school community!
We pray that all of our students and staff have a blessed and restorative summer break!
Your St. Mary’s Administrative Team
