Honors Assembly Congratulations

On Wednesday our community gathered for our annual Honors Assembly. We were pleased to welcome Beth Ghaphery Johnson '77  as our guest speaker who spoke of the St. M handprints on her heart. Our 2017 Dragon's Lair yearbook was dedicated to Pat Brady for her 29 years of service and dedication to our School. Congratulations to all of our award winners!
