Coffee & Conversation

This week, Mr. Hess hosted his first virtual Principal’s Coffee with new parents of current students at Saint Mary’s. Topics covered included re-enrollment, budget planning, a modest tuition increase, vaccination efforts, remote learning, improved technology access for grades 2-8 and a brief overview of Catholic Schools Week.

Participants asked some thoughtful questions which prompted further discussion about performance series testing, the formation of a literacy committee, on-going academic growth and accelerated learning opportunities, teacher morale and community building efforts by our PTO in a year that has challenged and changed our school in some significant, but positive ways.

Many thanks to parents who attended. We look forward to hosting another coffee in the coming months!
