Principal Notes – 3/10/19

Dear St. Margaret Mary Families,

This week we will end the third quarter.  The grade book will close on Thursday and report cards and grades will be posted on Thursday, March 21.

Things to Know: 

Picture Day – Spring pictures will be Monday, March 11.  Unlike the fall pictures, you do not need to send in an order form or money.  Proofs will be sent home after picture day and you will then have an opportunity to purchase pictures.   Students may be out of uniform tomorrow.

Change for Change:  This year STMM is partnering with Change for Change.  In each classroom, a milk jug will be placed to collect change for the Catholic Assistance Missions.  The Catholic Assistance Missions is a nonprofit charity that has built a primary school in the mountains of Haiti.  The charity is run by parishioners of St. Margaret Mary, Church of Holy Apostles, St. Patrick, and other in McHenry County.  The change collected will be used to pay teachers’ salaries and help but the food for students’ daily meals.  Nearly 250 impoverished children attend the school, preschool through 6th grade.  For some, the school meal may be the only meal they will have for the day.  Students are asked to bring in their donations to the homeroom teacher each week during Lent.

Land’s End Uniforms – The website for Land’s end is up and running.  Go to www.landsend.com/school and create or sign in to your account.  Include your student and school information in My Account (or find STMM by using the Preferred School Number Search; 900054578.  Start shopping with your personalized product checklist.

Golf Outing/Art Auction  – Save the Date – May 31, 2019.  This year’s Golf Outing and Art Auction will be held on May 31 at Pinecrest Golf Club in Huntley.  The money raised during the event will help support the cost of tuition.
World’s Finest Chocolate – All money for the World’s Finest Chocolate is due NOW.  Once all money is collected I will be able to report what has been collected.  This money is raised for 3rd source.  3rd source money helps support the cost of tuition.

Dine and Share Update – This year Home and School has been organizing a monthly dine and share events. Thank you to all the families that have come out to support the school each month.  This has also been a great opportunity to grow our school community and meet all the families.  This year half the money raised helps support the Home and School budget.  This includes Catholic Schools Week, dances, the musical, and so much more. The other half of the money is allocated for items needed in the school.  So far through the dine and share events, we have raised $1,541.95.  The school is currently looking to replace the preschool fence, purchase nets for the soccer goals, and install dividers between the urinals in the boy’s restroom. I am hoping that through the next few dine and share events we will be able to raise enough money to replace several projectors throughout the school.  Again, thank you all who have come out to support STMM.
