Welcome to a new school year

Summer vacation is almost over, and a new school year at St. Mary is about to begin. I would like to take this opportunity to go over a few vital pieces of information before the new year begins.

Freshmen & Transfer Student Orientation will take place on Wednesday, September 7 from 9 AM to 11 AM. Freshmen & Transfer Student Orientation is mandatory, and all freshmen & transfers MUST attend. All students must be in full summer uniform.

All students are to report to school on Thursday, September 8 by 7:45 AM. Dismissal will be at 2:21 PM. All students must be in full summer uniform. There will be lunch service. Seniors cannot leave the building for lunch on September 8 & 9. Seniors may leave for lunch beginning September 12. No senior may leave for lunch until the school receives a signed permission slip. Permission slips will be distributed in homeroom on September 8.

Gym uniforms will be on sale in the auditorium after school for any student who needs to purchase a uniform. The pricing list can be downloaded at the link below.

Finally, student schedules will be given to students during homeroom on September 8.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer vacation.  As both parents and students prepare for the Fall and the opening of school, please know that the faculty, staff and administration are here preparing for a comprehensive education experience in a safe, accepting and caring environment. I look forward to welcoming everyone back on September 8.  Until then, continue to relax, rest and enjoy your free time.
