A Message From The Superintendent...
Dear St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Stakeholders:
As we head into the holiday season, we know there is much to celebrate and be thankful for at St. Mary’s School for the Deaf. Our residential students displayed their thanks by serving a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner to their families and staff members on November 26th. On November 27th, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra kicked off the holiday season and played to a full house in the Gallagher Gymnasium.
Parent conferences were held on Thursday, November 7th. It was great to see so many of our parents and guardians visiting our campus, speaking to our staff, and thinking Child First!
We have scheduled a Town Hall Meeting for January 16, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the Main Building Assembly Hall. We will discuss the present state of St. Mary’s School for the Deaf and focus on programmatic and fiscal updates including information on our Auditory Option Education Program (AOEP). The meeting is open to all stakeholders of St. Mary’s School for the Deaf. Light refreshments will be served.
Winter recess is from Monday, December 23rd through January 1st, 2014. Students return to school on Thursday, January 2nd.
On behalf of our Board of Trustees, our staff, parents and, most importantly, our students, we wish you a very happy holiday season.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza, Happy New Year!
Timothy M. Kelly
