Thank you to our SRC President Julia Evans, members of the SRC Executive and Faculty Advisors Ms. Katherine Branscombe and Mrs. Rebecca Thompson for an exciting, high-energy “Welcome Back” assembly.  The assembly was enjoyed by all!!

Thanks to all parents who attended our Meet the Teacher / PSSC Information evening – Tuesday, September 11.  It was wonderful to see many familiar faces and also wonderful to meet many parents/guardians of the latest members of the STM family – the grade 9 students – members of the class of 2022.

I would like to emphasize with students and parents again that regular attendance and being on time for class is very important and is very much connected with student success.
