St. Martha’s School is committed to provide students with solid Catholic moral
values, high academic standards, and a strong sense of community.
The Blessed Virgin Mary occupies a special place in the Church, second only to that of Christ. Singularly blessed, Mary speaks significantly to our lives and needs in Her total love. The Church recognizes Her as the loving Mother and as its model and exemplar in faith and charity. During the month of May, which is dedicated especially to Mary, let us honor Her by reciting the Rosary together as a family. Remember that “The Family That Prays Together Stays Together.” (Fr. Patrick Peyton)
PARISH FIESTA - May 1-3 - Please remember that as stated in the Parent Contract, you are to work at the Parish Fiesta a minimum of 10 hours, 15 maximum. In the April Newsletter, you were informed that the sign-ups would take place Thursday, April 23rd, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 10. I would like to remind you that when you come to work, you must sign in and sign out for your shift in the “Volunteers’ Room” in order to get credit for your Hours. Also, please be reminded that only the person/s that is/are in the sign-up sheets will be allowed to work the Hours. No exceptions!

(We still need more eggshells for the confetti egg booth.)
