St. Mary's Lions Letter
September 12, 2023
Dear St. Mary's Family,
Thank you to all who sent flowers in celebration of the Nativity of the Blessed Mother last Friday. We not only had flowers for our large statue of the Blessed Mother, but flowers for every classroom's prayer table. It was a beautiful celebration and also a wonderful commemoration for the many grandparents and great-grandparents who attended Mass. Thank you!
We are excited to hear that the Peek at the Week's have proven to be a valuable communication tool for our parents in grades 1st-5th. Thank you for your feedback. If you have not received your Peek at the Week, please reach out to your child's teacher to ensure your correct email address is on file.
Several of our clubs have already begun and there is room for more students to join. If you have not already registered your child or if you need more information, please see the flyers for Chess, Tennis, Karate, Robotics, African & Liturgical Dance and Spanish in today's newsletter.
Scheduling Appointments with Teachers
Just a reminder that parents are not allowed to go to classrooms or pass the office area without scheduling an appointment. Visitors who are near classrooms or hallways MUST HAVE a visitor badge before walking any place other than the office. There are no exceptions. If a visitor does not have a visitor badge, they will be walked back to the office. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Parent/Student Handbook Acknowledgement and Media Release Forms
If you have not already returned your signed acknowledgment form, please do so no later than this Friday.
Please continue to sell your raffle tickets! Our first Early Bird drawing for a $50.00 gift card is this Friday, September 15th.
