In this issue: Catholic Schools Week! Mostcaocli Dinner, Vision/Hearing re-screening, Cold Weather Dress, Sewing Day Camp.

Dear School of St. Mary Parents,

Wow! What a week it has been thus far! We are looking forward to our last day of celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Next week’s Chronicle will feature many wonderful memories of happy students and their parents. Thank you for supporting your children in their world.

On Saturday, our second graders will celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they take the initial steps to forming their consciences.

If you have not already completed the re-enrollment process for next year, please do so prior to March 1, 2023. You can find the tuition schedule and policy on our website.

We hope everyone will join our Parents Association at their mostaccioli dinner on Saturday evening immediately following the 5:00 p.m. Mass. The $15 ticket will be donated to our Crusader Fund. This is a cherished tradition that helps foster our robust community.

Kathy Thompson, Principal

School News

Vision/Hearing Re-Screening
Students who need to be re-screened for vision and/or hearing will be screened next week, Wednesday, February 8th, or Thursday, February 9th.

Cold Weather
As the winter season is upon us, we believe outdoor recess is an important and valuable part of the student's day. Fresh air, exercise, and time spent outside afford students a break from the structure of the classroom. In the colder months, our policy will be that children will play outside as long as the temperature or wind child is at or above 10 degrees and the weather is not inclement. The wind chill report will come from the National Weather Service. Students must dress for the cold weather. See the Cold Weather Guidelines from Nurse Pacewicz.
