Dear Parents and Students,
I hope your Christmas vacation was filled with family time, some fun activities, and finding joy in the simple pleasures of life such as watching a beautiful sunset, getting some extra sleep, or biting into a crisp, juicy apple.
January 27th marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week. I invite all of our families and those interested in Star of the Sea School to join our staff at the 9:30 am mass on Sunday, February 3rd. Following the mass, Star will have an Open House for families interested in seeing all of the wonderful things our school has to offer. During the Open House, families will have the opportunity to tour the school and meet our excellent faculty. This is a great opportunity for you, our current Star parents, to spread the word about the positive qualities of our school to friends and neighbors who are interested in sending their children to a school that instills strong academic excellence and a place where we grow closer to Christ each day. In addition, our Preschool will also be open to tour as well.
The 8th grade students have all completed their High School Placement Tests. We are all very proud of them and know that they will be accepted to our many excellent Catholic high schools.
Our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Stella Maris CrabFest and Auction, will take place on Saturday, February 23rd in the gymnasium beginning at 6 pm. Do not forget to sell and/or purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a Mercedes Benz. Quite a prize for just $50!
I cannot thank you enough for allowing our teachers and staff to educate and guide your children.
Take care and God bless,
Mr. David Gallagher
