 Greetings,

 I am looking forward to meeting students and parents as the new school year begins at Mater Dolorosa.  I am getting the summer reading list set up, so that there will be enough time to read and write about at least one book.  I hope you are enjoying your summer, and will see you in August. 

Mrs. Brown
