From your Principal...
Dear STM Families,

This past Friday was our annual Field Day.  This is such a fun day for our students and gets better every year!  A special thank you to our Field Day Chairs Mrs. Farrell, Mrs. Byrd-Price and Mrs. King who planned an eventful, fun day for our K-8 students and Mrs. Coltharp and her team for planning a fun day for the preschool students!  As with all our activities, this day would not be possible without the help and support of our parents.  This year we had close to 100 parents come spend their morning with us and volunteer to ensure all the students had a great day.  Thank you to everyone for all their help and support.  You made a memorable day for your child(ren) and their classmates!   Please see Field Day section below.

Please make plans  to join us tonight for our Art Show from 5:00-7:00pm in Servant Hall. The talent of our students will be on display in Servant Hall.
