Principal's Memo 10-10-2017
From your Principal...

Dear STM Families,

Just as the Houston Astro's are hitting homeruns in the playoff series, we at STM are looking for our own homerun!  This Sunday is our much anticipated Oktoberfest!  The weather forecast is perfect for Sunday and we are looking forward to a great day, but again, need everyone's participation to make this happen.  Please continue to sell your raffle tickets and turn in sold ticket stubs and money to the office.  If everyone does their part and sell to family, friends and neighbors, we will knock our goal "out of the park"!  There are incentives in place for the students if their classes meet their raffle ticket sales.  To show our STM Oktoberfest spirit, students may wear their purple Oktoberfest shirt everyday this week with their uniform bottoms.  If you still need an Oktoberfest shirt, an order form can be found here or please see Kathy Prado in the office. Remembering our call to Stewarship, together let's make this years Oktoberfest one of the best for our STM community.

Some of our immediate needs for Oktoberfest: 
  • First Aid Station volunteers    
  • Give that new or gently used STUFFED ANIMAL a new home to love!
  • Rummage Sale Returns!!  Accepting items now!
  • Channel your inner bakerwe need cakes, pies, brownie, cookies, etc for the delicious Sweet Shoppe & Cake Walk  
  • Calling all Green thumbs, we need Plants for our Plant Booth
  • Donate candy or small toys  
  • Buy more raffle tickets  
  • Work a shift at a booth  
This Wednesday at 5:00pm, the STM football team has an important home game against St. Ambrose.  If our Tigers win this game, we will clinch a spot in the  GHCAA Six Man Football Championship .  Come out, show your STM Spirit and cheer our Tigers onto Victory!  All students who attend the game, stay until the end, sign in/out at the designated place, and cheer loudly for our Tigers, will receive a jeans pass for next Wednesday, October 18th.  

Finally, Ms. Macfarlane would like to thank everyone for their support in donating recyclable materials for the students art projects.  Be on the lookout for these beautiful works!  To complete the projects, Ms. Macfarlane is only in need of bottle tops and paper tubes.  We have plenty of milk jugs and cardboard.  

Things to know:

Have a good night.
Yours in Christ,
Kristen Thome
