Principal's Update 1/20/17
We have been blessed with this amazing weather. The students have been able to go out just about every day.
We still have many articles of clothing in our lost and found. If you are missing any items please have your children check our ever growing inventory.
I am pleased to announce that St. Mary of the Hills Early Childhood Center has been selected to pilot a new math initiative. I will be sending a detailed letter home in the near future.
This morning was an incredibly proud moment for our school. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our language arts teachers and their students, six of our students earned awards for the annual Duck Tour Essay Contest. We had a 1st, 2nd , and 3rd place winner in the Grade 5-6 category and Grade 7-8 as well. The students received certificates, books, sweatshirts, hats, and other gifts. More importantly the 5th and 7th grade classes earned a Duck Tour that will be
enjoyed this spring. Our 7th grader Elise Ferguson was given a $1,000.00 scholarship for her achievement!
