The Trojan Times
St. Maria Goretti Catholic School March 8, 2019
Dear SMG Families & Friends,
I didn't want to wait until after Spring Break to share all the exciting things that have been happening here at SMG, so please enjoy this Special Edition of the Trojan Times!
Remember to Spring Ahead this weekend! Luckily, we can sleep in a little to make up that extra hour we all lose this weekend--It's Spring Break--no school next week, March 11-15, 2019!!
Have a wonderful weekend and a restful and fun week ahead. We'll see you back on Monday, March 18th!
St. Maria Goretti, Pray for Us!
