Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! We wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves and give you a quick overview of all of the great things Parents’ Association has planned for this exciting year. Jennifer, Lauren and I believe parents are the primary educators of our children. We have selected the SOSM for their continued commitment to the educational growth and development of each child. Throughout the years, each of us has experienced change in the educational environment we have selected for our children. This year the evolution of our great school continues and we are excited to begin this next chapter with our new Principal, Dave Wieters.
One aspect that is not changing is the transparency of Parents’ Association. We have assembled a fantastic team of individuals this year all of whom are focused on strengthening our school for the betterment of our children. Attached please find a “PA 101” packet explaining the purpose, events and communication methodologies of our great team.
Parents’ Association utilizes the time, talents and treasurers of our school community to achieve its three main objectives: Community Building, Volunteerism and Fundraising. We are delighted all three areas will converge for an amazing weekend honoring our school. On Friday, September 22, the Fall Fun Fair kicks off the festive weekend events at the PGC with Inflatables, Games, a Magician and DJ for the kids. On Saturday, September 23, please join friends, neighbors, parishioners and alumni for this exciting evening benefitting the SOSM Annual Fund. We will come together as a community of faith for 5:00pm Mass followed by an Adults-only “Block Party” at the UGC. We are proud the School of St. Mary exemplifies a strong education integrating our Catholic values and know a successful Annual Fund campaign is the difference between a good school and a great school.
Centennials are not only a time to reflect on the past, but also an opportunity to build towards the future. We look forward to working with our new Principal and Father Mike as we establish the foundation for the next 100 years of the School of St. Mary.
