Principal's Update 3/24/17
As the season of lent continues, I wanted to share with you a message from Pope Francis. It makes me proud that I lead a school that exemplifies some of the qualities that Pope Francis says are important to have a truly satisfying spiritual life. Our students are kind and accepting towards each other. I see this when a classmate is upset, other students always come forward to comfort them. When a student becomes injured on the playground a friend always helps them to the nurse's office. I am blessed to see students working cooperatively in their classrooms helping each other synthesize information or tackle a difficult math problem. Students at St. Mary of the Hills are always willing to pitch in to support a cause or to reach out to those less fortunate. I can honestly say that you don't see this in all schools. We have something very special here!
Here is the link to Pope Francis' message about Lent:
As we are nearing the finish line I would ask if any of you would be so kind as to spread the word about our amazing school I would really appreciate it. Don't forget any family you recruit and they become accepted leads to a $300 discount on your tuition bill!
Thank you all for supporting Mrs. Etienne's fundraising request. We are very proud of her for her desire to do Mission work in Honduras this summer.
As always, my door is always open. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to stop by.
Mark your calendars!
