Presentation of Mary Academy  ePathways 

February 2018
February is the shortest month but it is a busy time at PMA. We celebrated Grandparent's Day, Marie Rivier Awards, the annual Valentine's Dance at the Methuen Senior Center and seniors were honored at their last basketball games.  It was a busy month.

Mother River Awards

Each year students nominate their peers for Mother Rivier Awards in the categories of: Faith, Compassion, Spirit, and Zeal. These awards are special because they are named after our foundress, Anne Marie Rivier and encompass her values and the values of PMA.

Additionally, an Outstanding Educator Award is given to a PMA teacher who goes above an beyond for his/her students.

This year Science teacher, Mr. Robert True was surprized as he was named Educator of the Year at the Mother River Awards Ceremony.  Mr. True has been a staple at PMA since xxxx. Congratulations Mr. True
