Communication Envelopes

Every Thursday Communication Envelopes will be sent home with your child. Important papers to keep you informed of what is going on at Saint Mary’s School and our community will be sent home in the Communication Envelopes. A few things to remember…

  • Please return the communication envelope to school with your child each week

  • Please do not return any completed forms, notes, checks, etc. in the communication envelope. Your child’s teacher does not look through the envelope. Forms, notes, etc. should be sent in through school directly to your teacher or the school office.

Congratulations to...

...St Mary students who received an invitation to take the Neumann Scholarship Test: Sophia Ardizzi, Amy Casas, Laurel Chung, Sofia Farrell, Rachel Grossbauer, Thomas Heibeck, Abbey Kofeldt, Mackenzie McCafferty, Bailey McCausland, Darby Spina, and Christopher White. Please keep our Neumann Scholar students in your prayers!

The Neumann Scholars Program, honoring the founder of our parochial schools, St. John Neumann, the fourth bishop of Philadelphia (1852-1860), is an initiative sponsored by the Connelly Foundation. Developed in 1994 to promote and reward academic excellence among students in parish/regional schools, the program provides scholarships in each district of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to those who excel in an independently administered test. Students designated as Neumann Scholars are offered four year scholarships to any of the seventeen Archdiocesan High Schools. For each of the four years in high school, the annual amount of the Neumann Scholarship will be equal to the standard parental tuition announced in January of each year by the Office of Catholic Education. Any fees will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

Thanks to...

...Nancy Moratelli... Not only did she make the originals, but she volunteered to spruce up the patriotic pins the students wear for our special Masses. Thank you very much Mrs. Moratelli – they look fabulous!
