A message from Principal Rebecca Reynolds:
Who would have imagined that life as we know it could have changed this abruptly? Did you ever envision your home would serve as both your office and your child’s new learning space? Perhaps you, like many of us, are learning to balance it all.
In the past week, we have heard from parents things like, “Wow! I had no idea my child needed so many reminders to stay focused.” and “I would pay a million dollars to any teacher right now.” While there is humor in some of this, the reality is no joking matter.
At St. Mary Academy, supporting students with focus and attention issues is one of our specialties. Many students come to us struggling to understand a concept they were taught years before and just never quite mastered. We can help.
Our program is designed to instruct students at the level where they are ready to learn. In doing this, we strive to close any gaps in learning, strengthen skills, and continue to challenge. So, as we navigate this unforeseen circumstance, let’s all take a deep breath together and know that we will get through this as a community.
Although our school building may be temporarily closed, active learning is still very much open. Students and teachers are working collaboratively from home. We are all united in this and will remain steadfast and true to our mission at St. Mary Academy.
St. Mary Academy aspires to provide a safe environment, rooted in Catholic teachings, for a unique community of diverse learners, while nurturing spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical potential to help cultivate lifelong stewards of Christ.
We look forward to meeting you in person soon. In the meantime, explore our website, join us on a virtual tour, and feel inspired knowing that when our world returns to normal, St. Mary Academy will be here to help your child soar.
In His Peace,
