Dear Families, NWEA/MAPS testing is now complete. The teachers and I met today to go over the results of the testing and to plan instruction based on these results. Your children are so blessed to have such dedicated and supportive teachers! I met with the PTO officers this week. They have so many exciting plans for the year.

Dear Families, Welcome Back to St Mary of the Hills School! If you are new or a returning family please know that you are now part of a very special community of educators and scholars! We have so much to be grateful for. Many of you have already stepped up to volunteer your time and talents to help in many ways. Volunteering is proven to improve your lives but also the lives of your children.
