Principal's Message


August, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2018 – 2019 School year.  The Faculty and I are looking forward to a new year filled with new and exciting curriculum and several new programs to enhance both academics and spiritual growth. The Virtue we have chosen this year is Justice. It is my hope that we all will learn to understand this Virtue in the way that the Lord asks us to. We will use the Bible verse “You have been told, O mortal, what is good and what the Lord requires of you: Only to do justice and love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8) to guide us as we look to better understand Justice.

To our returning families, we have had a few changes over the summer.  Mr. Mongan and Mrs. Turano will not be returning.  They have both secured public school positions.  I know you join with me in thanking them for their dedication to our students and to our community!  We wish them God’s blessings as they move on.

Mr. Alec Botsch will be our new Social Studies teacher.  He will also be teaching 7th and 8th grade Science.  Miss. Emily David will be our new Second Grade teacher.  They are both excited to begin their new journeys here at Holy Name of Mary.  As soon as we set them up with web pages, they will post their biographies and you can read all about them! 

Students may wear their polo shirts (gym shirts) with uniform slacks or gym shorts for boys and with uniform skirts or gym shorts for girls for the first month of school. 

It is very important for you to attend our Orientation for Nursery, Pre-K and Kindergarten on Tuesday, September 4 at 7:00 pm and  our Meet the Teacher Night for Grades 1 – 8 on  Thursday, September 6 at 7:00 pm. Both will begin in the gym and then move to the classrooms.  You will hear about our new programs and schedule. We also look forward to introducing our two new teachers!  Miss Ciminelli and I will be available to answer any questions.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
