Principal’s Message

Message from the Principal

The school year at St. Mary has commenced and I would like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone. Education can be likened to the Wild Wild West and this year, we challenge our students to explore as far as they can and expand their minds. I appeal to the students, the families, the parish and the teachers to ride on this journey together.

The teachers at St. Mary School are taking action and helping the students to achieve academic, spiritual, physical, moral and social learning. May I take this opportunity to thank all the teachers and staff for their continued professionalism, excellence and dedication. It is teacher commitment and motivation in the classroom that will help to create a year that is bright. Also a special thank you goes to our parish members and staff who continue to pray and support us.

This year, the Parent Teacher Organization continues to tirelessly take action to help raise funds for St. Mary School. Please help and support this effort. In addition the School Council will continue to take action to help strategically plan towards ensuring the future for our School.

This year families we thank you for choosing our school and we ask you to GET involved. You are expected to help with events such as the Bazaar & Spring Fling, trips, and fundraisers. In addition bring your ideas and opinions to PTO. Communicate with our staff to help your students thrive. Consider volunteering in or donating supplies to your child’s classroom.

However, even more importantly, the students themselves will have to take action to further their education. Our young ladies and gentlemen too are beginning to realize the importance of self-motivation and are preparing to help themselves. You must help yourselves so that ultimately you can help others. Each young lady and gentleman here today, in their own way, will need to help. You will need to help your family and church. You will need to have faith in God when sense and reason go missing. You will need to help solve problems through innovation and invention. You will need to help the environment. And, you will need to help turn indifference into motivated, helpful action.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers;

Principal Stover
