Principal’s Corner February 2019
Our school observed National Catholic Schools Week’s theme 2019 “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed” with a celebration of mass, open house, and other activities for our students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, we focused on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
Many students received the Viking Pride Award at the end of January. All students in grades 3-8 who won this award since the beginning of the school year, were entered into a drawing. The following six students won a special luncheon:

Congratulations! I am looking forward to treating them with a take-out lunch of their choice and spending a lunch period with them. The next drawing will be held in May. Students in grades Pre-K-2 who are Viking Pride Award winners, picked a prize from a prize box.
This month we also prepare for the next school year and are asking families to re-register their children for the 2019-2020 school year. Please note that the tuition has remained the same for the last three years!
Looking ahead, we will continue to work diligently together to ensure that all children at St. Mary School have an opportunity to learn and grow. We are deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children.
We are very excited to start construction for our Makerspace Room over the summer. It will be great to see our students working collaboratively, learning, exploring, and inventing!
We will also be adding a new Pre-K class for our 4-year-old students. This class will meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in the morning and afternoon. Lots of exciting things are happening at St. Mary School!
Lastly, I would like to thank our parishioners for your continuous and generous support of our school and Catholic Education in our parish. This truly means a lot to us!
