A Message from Our Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Saint Mary’s Elementary School, where we strive to educate the whole child—intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

We introduce our very youngest students to learning through age-appropriate activities designed to acclimate them to a formal learning environment, cultivate a curiosity for learning, and help them begin to develop academic and social skills. At the primary grade levels, our students are actively exploring concepts and developing skills through an interdisciplinary approach utilizing the latest technology, hands-on learning materials, and skill-related experiences. Our oldest students are tackling a challenging curriculum, participating in extracurricular and athletic activities, and serving the needs of others – and they are succeeding at every step.

Throughout all of our programs, the values of the Catholic faith remain central to the moral and ethical development of each child. Our students learn about the tenets and meaning of their faith and how to live it joyfully, especially in serving others within the school and greater community – which they do with enthusiasm and compassion.

At every level, we balance strong academic development with experiences to encourage personal growth. Our exceptional faculty and staff guide each and every one of our students along their educational journey, always promoting the safe and welcoming culture that is one of the hallmarks of the Saint Mary’s experience.

I invite you to explore our wonderfully affirming culture and innovative academic programs and schedule a personal tour to see firsthand how students are flourishing every day at Saint Mary’s.

Sincerely,

Celeste M. Checchia, Ph D
Principal
