Student Announcements:

  1. Welcome 8th graders.  We are ready for the school year to begin.
  2. A reminder to advocate for the wellbeing in our school community by following the health and safety protocols you have been hearing in the video, in the Reopening Plan, from your teachers, and other staff.
  3. Keep hydrated.  Notice the new water bottle fillers around the school, a result of the St. Mary’s Association (SMA) in action.  
  4. Please pick up your locker belongings from last year at the end of the day today.  Your items are bagged up for you.  If you forgot your number, there are lists posted at the hallway entrances.
  5. Enjoy looking through the yearbook that you will receive in Period 8 today.
  6. I know you will endeavor to be positive role models for the 7th graders who will begin classes tomorrow and for all Middle School students throughout the school year.  Remember our core values of responsibility, respect, honesty, fairness, and compassion.
  7. Be patient and enjoy being back together and learning at St. Mary’s.
