St. Mary's School says Aloha
By CAMILLIA LANHAM
A celebratory Aloha Day sent St. Mary of the Assumption School students scuttling off to six weeks of freedom on June 26.
St. Mary’s students participate in the longest school year in the Santa Maria Valley, according to a recent press release. Principal Michelle Cox said in the release that children attend at least 20 more academic days and spend up to 30 percent more time in classes than they would at other local schools.
“This has been a great year for St. Mary’s School students,” Cox said in the release. “I’m so impressed with all of their accomplishments in the classroom, conducting community service activities, and a wide range of extracurricular activities, from winning basketball championships to fielding a Lego robotics team.”
The school serves about 250 students from preschool to eighth grade. And it’s proud to provide those students the only 200-day academic year in the valley, Cox said in the release.
So after a long year of academia, the Aloha Day events, games, and activities sent kids on their way to enjoy a respite, before they head back to school hallways on Aug. 13.
