This is your opportunity in advance of school's commencement to: meet and greet school staff, drop off specific classroom supply donations (paper towels, tissues, cleaning wipes etc.,) discuss and register for volunteer events for the upcoming year's required ten service hours per family, learn of extracurricular activities for students and as a time to re-connect with other parents, school board & PTO council members while enjoying some light refreshments. 

We greatly value your time and participation. Having received feedback from those in attendance last year, we have drastically reduced the number of presentations for the evening. Specifically, Mrs. Rex will provide a brief over-view including staff updates, school policies, and goals for the coming year. Our Lady of the Cross-Parish Finance Chair, Mitch Koziol will then provide a brief fiscal report on the completed 2016-17 finances as well as a budget forecast for 2017-18. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers following each of the two speakers. 

We trust and appreciate that you will make every effort to attend this important start to the 2017-18 Mater Dolorosa School Year, we look forward to seeing you!!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Rex, Principal

 Sr. Corinne was the beloved principal of Mater Dolorosa School from 1995 – 2011.  For 48 years Sr. Corinne ministered in the field of education, as a teacher and principal.  In her role as principal of MD School, Sr. Corinne touched the lives of countless students, as well as teachers, staff and parents.  The school children loved her and Sister loved each of them.   Sr. Corinne had a beautiful smile and the joy that filled her heart was contagious.  She encouraged “her children” to be peacemakers in the spirit of St. Francis.  May Sr. Corinne now experience the joy and peace of being in the presence of God forever!
 
Memorial donations may be made in Sr. Corinne’s memory to be used for scholarships for current students of MD School.  Donations may be mailed to the school or dropped off at the school office.  Thank you for your generosity!
Mater Dolorosa School is offering a $500.00 matching incentive program to all current families with children attending Mater Dolorosa School for the 2016-2017 academic year. This incentive program is an opportunity for MD parents to save on tuition while increasing enrollment.
