Note from the Principal

Thank you for a wonderful first few weeks! Our SMG students and teachers are well into the first quarter and embracing the new school-wide organization, note-taking, and annotating systems. All grade levels 2nd-8th are working on their novel studies. Our focus is to help our young readers develop active reading, writing, and questioning skills along with teaching what is true, good, and beautiful in these life experiences shared by the classical authors. Mrs. Cottingham has already mentioned an increase in individual library visits from students looking for specific reads in response to their own personal questioning and investigations. Thank you for your support as we continue to walk this spiritually-enriched academic journey together.

Strategic Plan

As we continue our strategic planning, we will be sending out a parent survey after Kountry Karnival. We will use this information to continue building our five year strategic plan to help grow our school forward in all areas.

New Website

Let's send a huge thank you out to Mrs. Fishman for designing and launching the new Saint Maria Goretti Catholic School page! Thank you also to Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Gillilan, Mrs. Benson, and the staff for all the design and supplemental support for the website. What a great new face for the school!

Morning News

Thank you to Mr. Smith for launching our Morning News! This has been such a great addition to our day and a first for the diocese! Thank you, thank you!

Thank you all for providing such a safe and supportive environment for our young saints in the making!
