    FALL 2022

    Dear Members of the St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Community:



    Our 2022 Summer School was held in-person. During this time, our teachers, staff, and students were successful in achieving all goals in all our students’ individual plans. The theme of our summer program was “Unity.” The staff and students made a beautiful ASL video, “Bloom Again.” It was very well received by the SMSD Community. Thank you, teachers, staff, and students, for your hard work.


    In September, we proudly began our 169th year of Deaf Education at St. Mary’s. This year promises to be another exciting year for students and families with new creative, innovative programs. Students and Staff are excited to be back and are looking forward to the special in-person events scheduled for this up-coming school year. Student athletes are thrilled to be participating and competing in league games against other schools for the Deaf.


    Thursday, October 6th is “Parent Conference Night”. There is NO SCHOOL on Friday, October 7th or Columbus Day, Monday, October 10th.


    For more information on events, call the school at (716) 834-7200.


    St. Mary’s School for the Deaf continues to partner with our many community organizations and acts as a valuable resource to Western New York. We are committed to our Belief Statement and our Mission Statement. We remain student focused, and student centered in our approach to Deaf Education. Together we can help our students become life-long learners and productive citizens.

    We are Child First!
