I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Blessed Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year! We have so much to be thankful for but mostly or the gift of each other. I have been a part of many schools in my career and I have to say that St May of the Hills is so special. There is a sense of community here that you feel when you walk in the door. All of that is because of the tremendous dedication of all of our staff members and the support of all of the wonderful families.
As we begin this most holy Christmas Season we leave with a very special gift from the Early Childhood Center. The annual Christmas pageant was incredible. I am so proud of the dedication of the teachers and the gifted students. It is not easy performing in front of such a large crowd. I hope that those of you who witnessed it are filled with joy.
Part of our Mission is not only to value excellence in education but also to promote social development. This past week students created cards and care packages for the homeless at the Shattuck Shelter. I shared a letter of appreciation to our students today so that they could see the difference their kind gestures make in other people's lives. I hope you enjoy reading this letter written to Ezinna in Grade 2.
Enjoy time with your beautiful families and we'll see each other in 2018!
Mrs. Julie Marotta
