Principal's Update 5/12/17

Dear Families, Mrs. Ruggiero, Mrs. Banach and I had a wonderful time experiencing Washington DC with the 8th grade students. We were so lucky to get the unique opportunity to tour the inside of the White House! We also saw all the impressive monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, the Capital Building, Ford’s Theater, Museum of African American History and Culture, Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, and attended services at the National Cathedral. We were nonstop from 4am Friday until 1am Monday! Grade 5 and 7 enjoyed Duck Tours courtesy of essay contest winners Kevin Gailius and Elise Ferguson. Both groups had a wonderful time learning about many historic sites in Boston. On T

Principal's Update 5/5/17

Dear Families, Can you believe it's May? I can't! As I look ahead to the next few weeks I am amazed by how much is happening. It seems that just when softball, baseball, and soccer begin and the daylight lasts until 7:30, school events increase too. I encourage you to make an effort to come by and celebrate your child's accomplishments. I have been seeing the works in progress and am very impressed! Thanks once again for your support on the Science fundraiser. The ECC students had the awesome experience of a visit from the New England Aquarium! The educator that came here was so knowledgeable and worked so well with the students. She brought many sea creatures from tide pools that the stude

Dear Families, This week the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders had a visit from Sister Mary. Once again I will tell you about Sister. She is a retired Sister of Saint Joseph who lives on campus at Fontbonne Academy. She shared her faith with the students as they prayed the Stations of the Cross. Sister was impressed with how faith filled our students were and how well taught in the Catholic faith. They asked a lot of great questions. They made the teachers and me very proud. Today the 6th through 8th graders went to the church and made their sacrament of penance. They were very reverent and respectful. As I said last week, forgiveness is so healing. We must all learn to forgive each other alw

Principal's Update 4/28/17

Dear Families, What an incredibly quick week. I have been very busy giving tours to perspective families. Keep talking up our amazing school! I would love to get more students in Grades 1 and 2. We have been marketing through Salem Interactive Media. If you tune in to WROL 950 AM, Radio Luz 1150 AM, and WEZE 590 AM you may be lucky enough to hear one of our spots. This week our Middle School students had their Science Fair. I was very proud of all of the research and preparation that went into some incredibly high level projects. I want to thank the science teachers for their guidance and instruction and you the families for your support and encouragement. Well Done! As the school year qui

Principal's Update 3/31/17

Dear Families, As I type this letter I am looking out at the snowfall. It's certainly does not look like tomorrow is April 1st! The wonderful part of spring snow is that it won't stay away too long. We had such a fun week of learning here at St. Mary of the Hills. Students have been studying Oceania, doing science experiments, making puppets, growing in their reading and math abilities, studying the human body, talking about genetic modification, writing persuasive letters, practicing their cursive handwriting skills, working on poetry and science fair projects, and learning about their faith. Sadly, I was told that General Mills adds bleach to our cereals. Who knew! Today the 5th grade
