Dear Parents,
 
Congratulations to the Class of 2021.  We held a lovely commencement ceremony last night in the Cathedral where 32 young men and women became alumni of Saint Thomas More Cathedral School or St Isidore of Seville Catholic Virtual School.  Thank you to Mrs. Johnston and Mr. Baxter for their contribution to this terrific evening.  The Class of 2021 also presented us with an additional water bottle filling station and creative STM fence art near the Mary Grotto.  Thank you 8th graders, we will miss you.
 
I am sad to announce that Mr. Hadrian “Adee” Mendoza has made the decision not to return to STM next school year.  He will continue to hold his camps this summer and we will see him around campus as his daughter will remain enrolled at STM.  We will miss you too, Mr. Mendoza.
 
Hot dog Bash on Friday from 3:00-7:00pm.  The weatherman says rain (actually a deluge) so we will make a decision as to whether we can safely hold the gathering by 9:00 tomorrow morning.  We will send out a cancellation notification if necessary.
 
I recall last summer as we planned for the school year, and no one thought we would be in the building for more than a month, let alone the whole year.  It has been a great year, too.  We have all successfully navigated a world-wide pandemic while our students advanced socially, emotionally, and academically.  Pats on the back all around!
Thank you for being STM strong all year.  Faculty, staff, parents all working together made the difference.  Mitigated, educated, congratulated, we’ve done it!  See you next school year...same bat time, same bat channel.
 
Chat soon,
