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. Here are a few tips for our students and families to make the most of the holiday season. When we get busy, our exercise routine is often the first to fall off our priority list.

Virtual Learning for Second Language Learners


An international elementary school is a rich language environment for English language learners. Instruction is in English, the common language between friends with different backgrounds is often English and the environment is often covered in English language prompts from the alphabet on the wall to signs around campus. 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.

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 [...]

Here are a few tips to keep your children active during the day: Have a family dance party with GoNoodle or Just Dance Videos on YouTube.

A Big Day at St. Mary’s


Your Content Goes Here Whether it is a transition to a new school, or a return to a much loved school, the first days of each new grade is often something we - and our children - will remember.
