Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

April 26, 2021

Note from the Principal

Good morning!


The Phase III sign-up for our middle school students to return to campus was released last Friday. Please sign up here to indicate your desire to return to campus.


The Boosterthon is this week! I am grateful to the HSA for all their hard work organizing an event that works with our virtual students and our on campus learners. Please see more details below.


Have a wonderful week!


Mrs. Lewis

Boosterthon

St. Mary’s of the Assumption Families,


We are three days away from our Booster-thon/Activity-thon program! Thank you to

everyone who has already pledged their support. Students in school will have a socially

distance event.


Just so you know, the students that raise $200+ will get a VIP Movie Night with snacks

in May! The class that raises the most money will get a class Pizza Party. Parents can

still register their child(ren) to participate and all registered students will get a goody bag

through Thursday and parents get two volunteer hours.


Enter all pledges on FUNRUN.COM. Thanks again for your support!

St. Mary of the Assumption CYO Track Team

This season, the St. Mary of the Assumption CYO will be starting a Track Team!



  • Students ages 7-14 may participate in track events. There will be a variety of events including the 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 meter races. Given the pandemic, track meets will be held either on Saturdays or Sundays at Elizabeth Seton HS. Locations and times will be announced the week prior to the meet.




  • Social distancing protocols will be in effect which may require 2 sessions. One session for girls and one for boys, to reduce the number of students at the track at a given time.




  • Each athlete will be allowed to participate in no more than 4 events. Once athletes complete their events, they must immediately leave the track.




  • There will be no practices at this time. Once additional restrictions are lifted practices may begin.




  • The cost to participate is $70. This cost is for the entire season.
