St. Mary Star of the Sea School - Principals Newsletter

Dear Families

 

Mother Nature

Who could have predicted the unseasonably warm spring weather we experienced last week? Although measures were already underway to turn on our school air conditioning two weeks early, we faced mechanical difficulties. We have boilers that are over 70 years old! Needless-to-say, it was uncomfortable but bearable. Thank you for your patience.

 

PE Uniforms

Student PE uniforms may only be pre-ordered or purchased at Ray’s t-shirts in the Fall. We will not have them available for purchase at our back to school event on August 15th. Please see the order form in the green envelope. Payment is due at the time of pick up.

 

Last call for calendar updates – Friday deadline!

At our last SMFA meeting, parents asked if they could have items placed on the 2022-2023 academic calendar. This not only alerts parents to save the date, but it reserves Duggan Hall for you. The office is ready to print the calendars. I will wait until this Friday, May 20 to authorize the final printing. Please call with your suggested events.

 

Uniforms required

The students are expected to be in complete uniforms through the last day of school. The only exception would be on Wednesdays when they are permitted to wear the “Follow me to Star of the Sea” shirt with jeans.

 

Hot Dog Day

Hot Dog Day is Thursday 5/26. Please place you orders. Extras are not purchased.

 

No School Friday May 27th (staff development) and Monday May 30th (Memorial Day)

Have a safe holiday weekend!

 

 

 

Blessings,

Mrs. Usauskas

Dear Families

 

Thank you to our Parents and 8th Graders

On Tuesday, May 10th, Mexican Mother’s Day the staff was treated to an hour of good food and entertainment. It was a fun hour of friendly competition. Who knew our teachers could hula hoop or use a yoyo so proficiently? Could you have predicted Mrs. Evans would win the trivia contest. To top this off, the 8th grade prepared ice cream floats for the teachers and a delightful skit to music from the 50’s. It was a memorable event. Thank you from us all.

 

PE Uniforms

Enclosed in this week’s green envelope is a form to order your PE uniforms for the Fall. NO money is due at this time. Ray’s T-shirts will prepare the orders and send them to SMS for pick up on August 15th – our scheduled Back to School night. Payment may be made by cash or check. We hope this will be a smoother process in preparing for the fall classes.

 

Are you sick or away?

Parents please remember it is extremely important for you to call you child(ren) in when they will not be in attendance. We want to ensure their safety and need verification of their locations. Please call the school office by 8:30 each morning they are out.

Field Days

SMS Field Days are scheduled for on Wednesday, May 25 (Preschool & Kindergarten) and Thursday, May 26 (grades 1-8). Only parents who are Virtus certified and up to date on their articles and training will be allowed to assist in the activites. Please verifiy your compliance with Mrs. Michelle Hernandez in the office.

 

Pizza Day

Pizza Day is Thursday 5/19. Please place you orders. Extras are not purchased.

 

 

 

Blessings,
