With each conference lasting from 15 to 20 minutes, parents can make the most of the time by preparing a little ahead of time. Here are some tips to make the most of your upcoming Parent [...]

Benefits of After School Activities


Benefits of After School Activities With students in classes for just seven hours a day, there isn’t always time for all of the learning, growing, challenges, and fun that we have to provide for our students. That is where our After School Activities program comes in! At St. Mary’s, we provide after-school activities for our KG, Elementary, and (soon) Middle School Students. These activities provide students with opportunities to engage in organized group activities that allow them to develop talents, learn new skills, socialize, strengthen friendships and make new friends outside of their grade and classrooms.

The Grizzly House System


The Grizzly House System Common in the British School system, school houses provide opportunities for students to develop and thrive outside of their regular academic schedule. Each house is made up of students from different grade levels, allowing students to meet, work, and bond with students of different ages. This provides opportunities for teamwork, leadership, and relationship building. Membership in a house also provides students with another layer of identity, another group to be a part of, within the larger school community.  Here at St. Mary’s, as GRIZZLIES, it is only natural that our houses are [...]

Preparing Students to Test Their Best


While their everyday classes have prepared them for the test material, there are things that we can do as parents, to help our children be physically and mentally prepared for success on testing days. Make sure your child goes to bed at their regular bedtime the night before each test day to ensure they get enough rest. Wake your child early enough for them to be alert and ready to go; encourage them to do some stretching or jumping jacks. When we are too hot or too cold it can be hard to concentrate. Make sure your [...]

Engaging Young Learners Online


Importance of Engaging Environment for Young Learners in Distance Learning The kindergarten and early elementary years are important foundational years in a child’s education. During these years, they learn how to play fairly, how to resolve conflicts, how to follow routines, how to communicate in groups, and they begin learning the early literacy and numeracy skills they will need throughout their later education. Before the COVID pandemic moved us all online, these skills were learned in a classroom setting, surrounded by their peers, and led by caring teachers and school administrators. But now, many of our children are spending these [...]
