Parent Memo

From Ms. Lorie

St. Mary’s Grade School



Friday, March 31


Dear Families,

Today, financial contracts for 23-24 will be sent home with every family.  Please look for a large white envelope from your oldest child.   Inside you will find the updated guidelines for tuition and fees for next year.  Please sign the contract once you have read it and return it to school.   If you are Catholic, the form to receive the Catholic tuition rate has been included for you to get approval from your Parish Pastor.  This form needs to be at the school by Contract Signing in order to receive the Catholic rate.


On a fun note…Spring/Summer uniforms begin next week!  Students may now wear tennis shoes Monday through Thursday.  All tennis shoes must be worn with socks.  Navy blue shorts are also permitted but must be a long short and loose fitting and not made of stretchy material. All shirts must still be tucked into the pants daily and a belt worn if there are belt loops on the shorts.


The HandS Easter Party Picnic is this Sunday, April 2, at the Clarksburg City Park in Nutter Fort.  See details below.  Every class has been assigned a specific item to contribute.


Monday, April 3, is Spring Picture Day!   Students may wear regular clothes for this picture.


Have a blessed Easter and Spring Break!
