From your Principal...
Dear STM Families,
This afternoon, we sent out our Re-Enrollment packets via email.  We are excited that this process will be handled online this year, which should make it more convenient for all our families. Please note, this re-enrollment cannot be completed using the RenWeb App on your phone. Due to the fact that the process will require forms to be uploaded this must be completed using a Desktop version of RenWeb. Check for an email from me in order to start the process. If you have not received an email, please contact Judy Gentempo in the office to ensure we have the correct contact information for you.

There will not be any Club meetings on Thursday this week due to Professional Development of our teachers.  

Reminder, this Friday is Parent/Teacher conferences.  School will dismiss at noon with conferences following by appointment only.  Your child will bring home a notice tomorrow if a teacher has requested a time.  If you did not receive a conference request and would like to make an appointment, please call Judy Gentempo in the office and she will work to coordinate this. Pre-Kindergarten - 5th grade students will eat lunch at school. Middle school students will not eat lunch at school.

Looking ahead, we will be recognizing Go Texan Day on Friday, February 23rd as our city kicks off the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Students will be allowed to wear jeans and a western shirt to school that day. No boots or hats will be allowed.
Yours in Christ,
Kristen Thome
