Our seventh graders using the microscopes this week during science lab

Dear Friends,

 

Happy Catholic Schools Week!

 

We begin our observance of Catholic Schools Week in the most appropriate way, with two liturgical celebrations: The first is the parish wide celebration at the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday and our schools' Mass on Monday.


This week long observance helps us to remember the past by recognizing the legacy that we have received from all those who have gone before us, celebrating our present successes and believing in a future full of promise.


Please keep the mission of Catholic education, especially the mission of the St. Joseph Parish schools, in your prayers.

 

Sincerely,

Jay MacDonald

Principal

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: LILLY  AND CALISTA ADLER

Sisters Lilly MHMS'16 and Calista MHMS'18 Adler are MHMS alumni both currently at Ursuline Academy. Lilly, a junior, is involved with Math Club, Science Club, Robotics, Model UN, Cross Country, Tennis, and Knitting Club. Calista is a freshman and participates in Soccer, Math Club, Science Club, Robotics, Winter Track, Tennis, and Knitting Club. Lilly started the Knitting Club this year which supports the Caps for Kids Beantown organization.

 

 

What is one of your favorite memories of MHMS?

LIlly: My favorite memory is probably the DC Trip. I just really enjoyed learning about all the historical sites we learned about in class and it brought the classroom outside of school.

 

Calista: My favorite memory was the sixth grade trip to Boston for three days. I really enjoyed going to the aquarium. It was fun to walking around, spending time with everyone.

 

How did MHMS prepare you for high school?

Lilly: MHMS really prepared me because it gave me good study habits and organizational skills. I just felt really prepared for the workload. 

 

Calista: MHMS was really good in helping me be more organnized. I also feel like we went further into detail here compared to my classmates coming to UA from other schools.

 

Lilly and Calista spent a recent day off for UA professional development back volunteering at MHMS. Thank you, girls, for giving back on your day off! We love when our alumni come see us!
