Dear Parents:

Our Catholic faith is central to all that we do at St. Thomas More School. Gospel ideals permeate the substance and structure of lessons prepared by our teachers. Faith is shared through daily prayer and the regular celebration of Mass as a school community and with our families on Sundays. Catholic schools offer an excellent, nurturing, values-centered education in a structured environment. This helps children of all backgrounds realize their fullest potential as human beings.

The Catholic school experience is an unparalleled opportunity to develop a child's mind, heart and soul.
ONE WARM COAT COLLECTION
ALL types of coats are needed and will be distributed to needy people by St. Anthony's and the St. Vincent de Paul Society. You can drop off your donations anytime between now and January 31 to the school office. We have 51 donations so far! Thank you!!
SIGN UP GENIUS
Volunteers are needed for the Scholastic Book Fair (Jan 26-Feb 1) and Cioppino (Feb 24). As a reminder, each family is required to volunteer and serve a minimum of 12 hours for Parents' Club designated events this school year.  
 
Students had lots of fun preparing and studying for the Spell-A-Thon and completed their part in this fundraiser last Friday. Today, your child will bring home their pledge sheets and information on the number of words they spelled correctly. Please remember that all monies are due back by Wednesday, January 31.

STM Newsletter for January 10, 2018

Dear Parents:

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. taught valuable lessons of equality, compassion, and understanding to people everywhere. King is perhaps best remembered for delivering his 1963 "I Have a Dream" speech in front of a quarter of a million people in the Mall in Washington, DC. His famous line, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character," still resonates today. Dr. King continually encouraged everyone to make a difference. Let us all continue to become more active, concerned citizens who care for others and become involved in acts of charity and work towards a more just society for all. We can enjoy a three-day weekend this weekend thanks to the observance of Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday.
