Dear St. Mary of the Hills Families,
This week I had the honor and privilege of attending the Peter Lynch Scholars Mass and Reception celebrated by Cardinal Sean. With me were 8th graders Gavin Nelson, Nyara Sydney, and our business manager Mrs. Powell. Thanks to the continued financial support of Peter Lynch and the Catholic Schools Foundation many students benefit from tuition assistance. Tuesday was a day to celebrate student achievement both in and out of the classroom.
I have also been working hard on transcript requests for the 8th grade applications for high school. I am so impressed with the quality our students both academically and personally. They are applying to prestigious Catholic and Independent schools. Please pray for them as they await their acceptances.
In making my rounds this week I have seen many children engaged in outreach initiatives such as decorating placemats for the elderly and collecting food for Catholic Charities for Thanksgiving. Part of what we do at St Mary of the Hills is to think about those less fortunate and count our blessings for what we have.
I hope to see many of you at our PTO Paint Nite event on Saturday evening! Enjoy the weekend with your beautiful children.
Mrs. Julie Marotta ~ Principal
