Dear St. Mary of the Hills Families: Once again we have been blessed with so many great learning experiences this week. Thanks to Ms. Haate Browne (mother of Nkemjika Obiora in KA) our Kindergartners through 3rd graders went to Lookout Farm in Natick. They got to experience a working apple orchard, visit with farm animals, and enjoyed a tractor ride through the property. The owners said that our students were so well behaved and polite and to please bring them back again! I'm not surprised since I know that we have the best students and families.
