Principal's Memo 08-15-2017
From your Principal...
Dear STM Families,

We are off to a great start for the 2017-2018 school year! It's just the second day of the school year, but students seem to have connected with their friends and settled into their new routines. Check the STM website for a few back to school photos.

Thanks to everyone who has set up their Renweb account. If you have trouble, please contact Mrs. Gentempo at jgentempo@stmorenews.com.  

A few things to remember:
  • Mark your calendars for this years Oktoberfest to be held on Sunday, October 15, 2017.  The always popular Oktoberfest t-shirt is on sale in the office for $10.00 each. 
  • News from the STM Library
  • PE uniforms are on sale now and will be required beginning Monday, August 21st. 
  • Halley, one of our second graders, started a drink pouch recycling brigade at STM a couple of years ago and will continue her efforts this year to collect and recycle to raise money for STM.  Small trash cans have been placed in the cafeteria for this recycling.  Pouches saved from home can be dropped off in the office and Halley and her mom will pick them up.  
  • Students may begin utilizing the walk-up and walkers afternoon carpool dismissal as soon as their paperwork in on file in the office. 
  • Once again this year we will be collecting used toner/ink cartridges in the school office.  This will be recycled through The Funding Factory. Last spring we raised $106 from this simple recycling effort.
  • Students, in 1st through 8th grade, are encouraged to bring water bottles to keep at their desks during the day.  The bottles must have sport tops and be clearly labeled with the student's name.  Water bottles will not be delivered to the student once the school day has started.
We have several events coming up, so please note the flyers and dates listed below.

Have a good evening.
Yours in Christ,
 
Kristen Thome
