If a child reads, they succeed. It’s that simple!

We suggest at least 30 minutes of quiet, attentive reading per day. 

The 2nd graders can keep improving with Accelerated Reading. You might find that books you have in your home collection qualify for AR points. Check their status and point value here : http://www.arbookfind.com/UserType.aspx



Matthew Ellis, a junior at Notre Dame High School, is partnering with St. Mary’s School to complete his Eagle Scout service project. He is collecting unwanted old American flags for proper disposal and will perform a Flag Retirement Ceremony for our students in the near future.

Please help Matthew by sending to school any unwanted old American flags for his service project. Keep in mind they will be properly disposed of in his ceremony.

Thank you for your help.
