Dear St. Mary of the Hills Families,
Happy New Year to all of you! We are back in full swing after almost 2 weeks of vacation. Our students and their teachers have been working hard everyday and the results of the Middle School MAPS/NWEA testing are showing steady growth in Reading and Mathematics. English Language Arts will be tested next week for them and Grades 2-5 will be tested Tuesday through Friday. Please make sure your children have a good night's sleep, eat breakfast, and be on time each day.
The PTO has been working very hard to creative fun family events. Tonight there will be Bingo for baked goods and on March 28th there will be a school wide Talent Show. Other events will be announced later. This is such a great way to build community and get to know one another better. I hope to see many of you tonight!
Please mark your calendars for Thursday, January 30th when we will be having our Annual Academic Night. You will be able to see incredible students work on display from the Early Learners to the 8th Grade. It is a very proud night for me and I hope to see many of you there.
I hope that you all enjoy this unusually warm weekend doing something outside with your amazing children!
Mrs. Julie Marotta ~ Principal
