Dear STM Families,
We hope everyone had a fun time celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Thank you to all who participated in the events planned for the week. Like always we were overwhelmed by the generosity of our STM families. Thank you for all the canned goods donated to the STM Church Food Pantry. Deacon Johnson received the donation from some of our school children and pointed out that at very moment, there were families in line awaiting the much needed donations to the Food Pantry. This was truly an opportunity to see good works in action.
A very special thank you to the St. Thomas More Parish Endowment Foundation for its gift to the school. The Endowment is in place to insure the future of St. Thomas More School. You can support the Endowment by going to Smile.Amazon.com instead of Amazon and choosing "St. Thomas More Parish School Endowment Foundation". It will only take a minute of your time and you will get the exact same Amazon experience, but the school will receive money directly because of your purchase.
Our STM Students continue to shine! Congratulations to our students who placed in the Archdiocesan Middle School Science Fair, the St. Pius X Academic Rally as well as the HLSR Art Competition. We will acknowledge these accomplishments after our all school Mass on this Friday. Please join us!
Next week we will celebrate Mardi Gras on Tuesday, February 13th. Wednesday, February 14th, is Ash Wednesday. We will have an all school Mass. This is also Valentines Day. Students may bring a non-food valentine treat/card for their classmates. Remember that students must bring a treat/card for everyone in their homeroom.
Uniform update: My team and I have met with many uniform suppliers over the past months. We are happy to announce that we have decided to proceed with Mills Uniform Co. as our new supplier. Although we will offer new items and colors to our uniform, our uniform plaid will remain the same. We will share specifics of our new pieces and timing of when our logo'd items will be available as soon as possible. We are excited about the changes that are coming and know our students will look very sharp!
