Principal's Post

Friday, June 4

Good evening SMS families, 

It is amazing to think that we are only a few days away from the end of the 2020-2021 school year!  We are looking forward to a fun last week ahead celebrating our awesome students and teachers!  Monday is our last full day of school.  We are surprising the students with Kona Ice on Monday and Tuesday for all of their hard work this year.  

 On Tuesday, June 8, we are excited to kick off our year long celebration of the 110th birthday of St. Margaret School!  The students may add-on birthday items to their uniforms on this day (ribbons, bows, hats, necklaces, etc.)  The teachers and staff who were chosen by the students to do the Ice Bucket Challenge (Mrs. Dillon, Mrs. Gerstmyer, Mrs. Remsky, Mrs. Messaris, Mrs. Ray and Mrs. Link) absolutely cannot wait for Tuesday!  On Wednesday our Kindergarten students will celebrate their closing prayer service and the HSA will honor the teachers and staff with a special luncheon.       

On our last day of school, Thursday, June 10, we will say “aloha”...goodbye to the school year and hello to summer break!  The students may add-on luau/summer items to their uniforms (hats, sunglasses, necklaces, flowered leis, socks, etc.)  Please join us virtually for our live stream Mass on the St. Margaret Parish YouTube channel at 9:30am. We will dismiss the MS at 10:45am and the ES at 11:05am on the last day of school. 

Summer Reading and Math - Information for summer reading and math requirements will be sent home with the students on Thursday, June 10.

Fall Festival - We are excited to announce the return of St. Margaret’s Fall Festival and we are looking for volunteers!  If you are interested in helping, please email Erika FitzGerald at

HSA Open Positions - The St. Margaret School's HSA has a spot for you!  If you are interested in any positions or have any questions, please send your contact information to  We also ask you to join us for coffee at Shamrock Park on Thursday, June 10th while the students are enjoying the end of school year mass.  Members of the HSA executive committee will be there to answer any questions you may have about being an active member of the HSA and any open positions available.  We hope to see you there!

Room Parents 2021-2022 -  We are in need of room parents for next year.  Please complete the Google form if you are interested in volunteering to be a room parent.  Please note that room parents will be chosen from these forms on a "first come, first serve" basis.
Attention volunteers!  The Archdiocese requires volunteers to complete a background screening and view a training training video every 5 years. Although we have not had volunteers in the school for over a year, I am hopeful that it won't be long until we can welcome volunteers into the buildings again. If you have received an email from Brenda Bell notifying you that it is time to complete a background screening and/or view a training video, please complete these requirements as soon as possible.  If you want to be sure that you are still approved to volunteer please contact Mrs. Bell and she will let you know your status. Thank you!
Calendar 2021-2022 - The first day of school will be Monday, August 30, for all Archdiocesan schools.  We are finalizing the calendar for the 2021-22 school year at this time and will send updates soon!
