I know that I told you that I was having an unannounced lock down drill the week after vacation. That did not happen as planned as my PA system went on the fritz. This is my means of communicating with the entire school at one time. Thankfully, it was replaced with an upgraded system this morning so the lock down drill will happen next week. As I stated before I do not want to scare your children but I want them to know that we are prepared to protect them in the event of an emergency. Please feel free to have a conversation about this with your children.
This week was filled with so much joy and learning. I know I always say this but I am truly blessed to be the leader of this great school community. The students inspire me every day to do better.
Today the 1st Graders led us in the celebration of the Eucharist. They were so reverent. Their love for God was so evident. It was a wonderful way to close out the week. Thank you, Mrs. Cronin and the 1st Graders.
Please take some time and complete the survey that I sent to you. It will provide me with the information I need to continue to take St Mary of the Hills into the future. Also, if you have not done so yet please send back your re-registration forms for next year.
I want to remind you to look in your backpacks for your invitation to this year's Family Sweetheart Dance! Put on your fancy party clothes and bring an adult you love...Aunt, Uncle, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, cousin, brother, sister or family friend. It will be held on Sunday March 18, 2018 from 5 to 7 pm at St Mary of the Hills School.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us. As always, I hope that you all have a safe and restful weekend filled with lots of family time.
Mrs. Julie Marotta
