Earth Day 2017:

Mr. Arpino has notified us that there are a number of available seats for any parent who would like to accompany us on the 8th grade trip to Hershey Park.

The students who attended mass with Bishop Barres on 3/26 may dress down Thursday, 4/6.
The students will be performing their skits with Father Jaime on Tuesday, 4/4. All permission slips must be returned by that time. All students must be prepared with any costumes or materials they have volunteered to bring in for the play. They have been working on this project for over a month.
There is a full day of school on Thursday, 3/23.
There is a half day of school (noon dismissal) on Friday, 3/24.
(Please note that our original calendar called for no school on 3/23 and a full day on 3/24. A letter was sent home in January switching these dates so that there would be school on 3/23 and no school on 3/24. Due to our most recent snow day, school will be in session both days.)
I am in the process of creating "Eighth Grade Memories" pages for the yearbook. Please email any digital photos you might have of our 8th grade students throughout their years at St. Mary School. All photos must be received by Friday, 3/24.
