St. Mary’s Tips For A Healthy Holiday Season


The winter holidays can be an exciting time, but they can also bring about stress and leave you worn down and not as able to enjoy time with friends and family.

Virtual Learning for Second Language Learners

This environment provides English language learners multiple opportunities to see, hear and practice English and helps them to reach fluency more rapidly.  However, with online learning, English language learners are less likely to be immersed in an English language environment. Especially in households where the family language is not English, children [...]

Ask for help with tricky situations from a parent or other trusted [...]

Kelso’s Choice provides Kelso the Frog as a character with problems children can relate to and positive ways to deal with minor conflicts. [...]

Covid Relief in Yen Hoa


We have all been affected in some way by the global COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions put in place to keep us all safe, but some of us have suffered worse than others. As a team at St. Mary's, we have been fortunate to be able to work from home and keep our families safe during these difficult times, but we know others in our community haven’t been so fortunate.  During the last week of September, we put out a call to administration, faculty and staff to donate what they could to a fund for vulnerable individuals and families [...]
