Mr. McAuliff’s BLOG…

Greetings and welcome to St. Margaret’s School newly designed website. Please understand that we are in the process of upgrading our website which includes adding, deleting and improving the content. One new feature is this Blog post. I will use this forum to provide parents and visitors to our website with up to date information regarding not only St. Margaret’s, but pertinent topics in education today. With my first year at St. Margaret’s now in the rear view mirror, I am looking forward, excited to embark upon our new school year and to begin planning for the future. Here are a few new initiatives that you will notice this year….

-New Faces: We have a few new staff members at St. Margaret’s for this school year. Mrs. Crystal Skrocki is teaching Pre-K4, Miss Emily Papini is teaching music, Ms. Deb Foster is teaching technology, Mr. Frank Aleschi is teaching physical education and Mrs. Pat Gustafson is our nurse on Monday. Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

-Service: At St. Margaret’s, we believe in service to others. Beginning this year and each year thereafter, we will adopt a service learning focus school-wide. Our focus for this year is “Feeding the Hungry”. Teaching kids to count is important, however teaching them WHAT counts is vital!

-Room Re-locations: Over the summer we moved some rooms, you will now find our art room adjacent to the music room creating a fine arts wing. The science lab has moved upstairs across from our technology lab helping to facilitate the transition to our STEM approach to instruction.

I encourage you to visit my Blog frequently for updates to our school as well as as other pertinent issues in education. As always, I thank you for the privilege of educating your child and may God bless you.
