Today we celebrated the gift of our volunteers at our school Mass. This school is so blessed to have so many wonderful volunteers that support our school in so many ways, coaching robotics teams, Battle of the Books teams, basketball teams, working in the classrooms directly assisting teachers and students , helping out in the Library and cafeteria, directing traffic in our parking lot, organizing our used uniforms, shredding paper, making copies, organizing our fundraisers, so many ways big and small to make our school the best for our kids. There are not enough thank yous in this world for you. Thank you so much for all you do, you are much appreciated and loved!
Friday, May 24 is the last day of school. We will dismiss at 11:00, there will not be lunch served or after school care
This weekend is First Communion weekend. Please keep our second graders and all students receiving this special Sacrament in your prayers.
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our PAWS group is working hard to make sure that our teachers feel appreciated. So far we have been treated to donuts, some chapstick (with a cute message attached), a random drawing of gift cards and breakfast! Thank you, PAWS, and thank you to our teachers for the amazing work you do each day.

Mary Queen is participating in the Crayola ColorCycle program, an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills!

The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles. 

There is a box set up in the rotunda of school to collect used markers that are ready to be discarded. Please help support our efforts by sending your kids in with any used markers you may have around the house- even non-Crayola brands! Highlighters and dry erase markers can also be included.
Summer STEM Camp at Mary Queen! Currently enrolled students receive a discount!
Would you like your design to be on the front of all the t-shirts for the Fall Festival this year?
