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 as a team so our students achieve all of their goals across all settings for the 2015-2016 school year. 


May is filled with many exciting events.  Track & Field season is in full swing.  Our Parent Teacher Organization is sponsoring Family Fun Night on May 4th from 4 to 8 p.m. in Gallagher Gym.  All stakeholders and their families are invited.  Our Annual Music Show is May 5th at 10 a.m. in the Young Assembly Hall.  Grandparents Day & Junior Class Tray Auction is May 12th beginning at 9:30 a.m. 


The SMSD drama production of “The Lion King” will be Tuesday, May 24th at 9:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. and Wednesday, May 25th at 7 p.m. in the Gallagher Gym.  Our students, staff, and volunteers have been working tirelessly as a team to make this production a huge success.  Don’t miss it!
