Principal Message

Dear Wolfpack Community, as we complete our second week of remote learning I want to thank everyone for their strong efforts. I want to give a huge  shout out to all of our educators for their

continued dedication to their students and families. A big thank you goes out to Mrs. Smith-Davies, Mrs. Labelle, and Ms. Fundarek for preparing devices for all of our students that needed a chromebook  to access the curriculum with their classmates remotely. Thank You!

        Knowing that there are many new applications to learn while your child is learning remotely,  here is a little 
Technology Checklist for Parents/Students and “How To” instructions to support you in remote learning. Your child can also use this technology checklist as a self-assessment tool.  “ These are the things I know how to do when using my chromebook.”  or “I forget how to….” 

         Everyone at STM is finding creative ways to enhance the remote learning experience to our Wolfpack students! As we continue to face many challenges in our daily routines don’t forget to breathe, unplug and enjoy the fresh air. Stay safe everyone! 

Yours in Education,

Mr. C. Risto
