Week of April 13, 2015
Have you been to our School website lately?  If so, you may have noticed some exciting new things!
In our on-going commitment to improve school communications, we have been making updates to the St M website so that our families can find the information they need quickly and easily. These enhancements include: new drop-down navigation, new pages for lunch menus, spiritwear and co-curricular/sports forms, a direct link to the weekly newsletter from the homepage, updated verbiage and more. You will also see some fresh new faces in our web photos as well! 
Check out the changes at stmschool.net. (To view the website correctly, be sure to refresh your browser.)  Special thanks to Leslie Eckmann whose work on the original site a few years ago paved the way for the recent improvements.
 Important Announcements:
Sharing Kindness 
Some St M friends made 47 Kindness Bags on Good Friday in honor of Mr Hubbard's career. The bags included: socks, tissues, Chapstick and non- perishable snacks to be given out at stoplights to people who need a little help. Kind notes written by the kids were also included!
Remember to share any Acts of Kindness that you experience by: emailing it to kindness@stmschool.net, tweeting it to #kindSTM  or posting it on Facebook and sharing it to our page.
