Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

May 2, 2022

Note from the Principal

Happy Monday!

This week we will have pictures for 4th-8th grades. Those students may dress out of uniform on Wednesday. All other grades should remain in uniform.

This Friday at 10am we will hold our annual May Crowning. All Virtus certified family members and friends are welcome to join us for the celebration.

Wednesday evening our 8th grade class will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. Please join me in praying for them as they receive their last sacrament of initiation into the Catholic church.

Have a blessed week!

Mrs. Lewis
