“Let your light so shine…” Matt. 5:16
Dear St. Mary School Families,
Is it Spring yet? Our 8th graders are going out to orientation meetings at the area high schools and the daffodils are in bloom, so these are indications that the school year is flying by.

Lions Club Vision Screening – We thank the local club for visiting our students today. Children in grades 1, 3, and 5 had the option of having their vision screened today and many families took advantage of this opportunity.

Next Week –
