A Message From The Superintendent ...


May 2015


Dear St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Stakeholders:


The fourth academic quarter is in full swing and the students are excited for all of the May and June events at our school.  Our focus remains on working together so our students achieve all of their goals across all settings for the 2014-2015 school year. 


The highlight of April was the SMSD drama production of “A Sister Act”.  The production played to three spirited crowds.  The musical was dedicated to our own Sisters of St. Joseph, who started SMSD in 1853.  Our students, staff, and volunteers worked tirelessly as a team to make all three shows a huge success.  It is a joy to see student achievement and student progress across all settings.


May is filled with many exciting events.  Our Parent Teacher Organization is sponsoring Family Fun Night on May 6th from 4 to 8 p.m. in Gallagher Gym.  All stakeholders and their families are invited.  Our Annual Music Show is May 7th at 10 a.m. in the Young Assembly Hall.  Grandparents Day & Junior Class Tray Auction is May 14th beginning at 9:30 a.m. 


Please note:  Friday, May 22nd is an early dismissal day (12:30 p.m.) due to Staff Professional Development.  There is no School on Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day.


Secondary Awards Day will be June 11th instead of June 9th.  Please mark your calendars!


The SMSD Annual Board Awards Dinner & Auction will be held on Friday, June 5th at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens beginning at 5:30 p.m.  Please email: if you are interested in attending or making a donation!


Our doors are always open and we welcome visitors to come and see what a special place our campus is.   Please feel free to contact us to make an appointment for a tour.


Child First!
