Principal Message     

       Dear Wolfpack families, I hope that this weekly update finds you safe and well. It is hard to believe that we are about to start into the month of November, which is filled with all kinds of school activities, including  Remembrance Day, World Kindness Day, Bully Prevention and Awareness Week  and, of course the beginning of Advent. All these special times at STM provide us with the ability to highlight all the wonderful things our dedicated STM staff will be engaging our students in for the month of November.  A big thank you to our CSC for sponsoring our Spooky School Wide bingo. We were able to raise almost $200.00 for our CEFO charity. There is still an opportunity to support CEFO by making your contribution using school cash online.  It was also nice to have many of our Virtual Wolfpack student’s schedules allowed them to participate as well. Don’t forget to check out our Twitter account to catch all of the STM Halloween spirit #STMWolfpack. We have so much to be thankful for and let us take this time to remember all the blessings that we have been given. Yes, we do know that our school year is filled with challenges. Let's continue to take it one day at a time as we foster a "Whatever it takes" mind-set to keep us all together safe and healthy.  


Wolfpack Wear 

 A great way to show your school spirit. A reminder that all clothing items including  masks, hats and school fanny packs will be available for purchase using School Cash Online starting this Sunday, November 1st to Thursday, November 19th. Special note to our Virtual Academy Wolfpack members pick up/delivery arrangements will be made for our  students.   ____________________________________________________________________
