Fairwells and Goodbyes

This year we will say goodbye to two staff members: Mrs. Retzer and Mrs. Stachowski.

Mrs. Retzer will "graduate" with her daughter and pursue her dream of being a math interventionist. Mrs. Retzer has been an excellent addition to our St. Margaret Mary family and we will miss her smile and singing throughout the halls. We wish her all the very best in her future endeavors.

After many years in the preschool, Mrs. Stachowski is retiring this year. Mrs. "S" has been a beloved teacher at our school for over 25 years. Mrs. "S" will be greatly missed but rumor has it that she might be back to sub in the fall!

IMPORTANT Parking Lot Closure - June 1, 2023

On Thursday, June 1, 2023, our 8th-grade students will participate in the "celebration walk" after their 8th-grade retreat. The school will be gathering in the school parking lot at about 2:40 to cheer on the 8th graders as they conclude their time at STMM. 8th-grade parents will be parked along the parking lot's perimeter by 2:30.

The west lot will be temporarily closed for this event from 2:30 - 3:00 to for all other school families.

If you arrive early for pick-up, we ask that you park in the church parking lot during the event. Once the lot is cleared of students the lot will be opened to all families and you will be asked to park in the west lot.

Mrs. O'Hearn will be in the parking lot to direct traffic and assist parents.
