Dear St. Mary's School families,
It gives me great joy to officially announce the hiring of Ms. Kathleen Doyle as the next principal of St. Mary Catholic School! Ms. Doyle comes to us from the Archdiocese of Louisville, where she has been the Curriculum and Instruction Coordinator and taught in Catholic schools. God sent us several wonderful, qualified candidates, but it was very clear that Ms. Doyle was our top choice. She and her family have recently moved to Spring Lake, and she is excited to take on the leadership of our school. Her duties will begin full-time on Tuesday, August 6, but she will be working to get up to speed between now and then. Please join me in welcoming Ms. Doyle to the St. Mary's Family! Ms. Doyle plans to introduce herself at Masses August 17 and 18 where she hopes to meet many school families and parishioners.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Dave Gross
Saint Mary Parish

Now that the halls and classrooms aren't filled with school activities, Mr. Earl and his maintenance staff have free reign to thoroughly clean every area of our school without interruption or time constraints. Students, teachers, staff and parents will return for the new school year with everything looking shiny and clean. It takes the entire school staff, throughout the whole year, to ensure success for every student.
We are especially grateful for our maintenance staff and groundskeepers for providing a safe, healthy and beautiful learning environment at St. Mary's School.
