Let there be PEACE on earth, and let it begin with me.

The week of the shooting in Las Vegas, locally we experienced another tragedy...the shooting of a young person (14 years old) in our very own community, Everett.  This brought about much discussion within our 8th grade.  We had a deep conversation about PEACE and how each and every one of us can play a role in spreading PEACE in our world.  It begins with each of us, parents and students alike! Mrs. Wilson (Middle School Math teacher) has launched our SMM's very first PEACE campaign.  It all began with an all-school assembly and has now evolved into a year long ...

Charity, Service, and Solidarity

Christianity calls for us to serve others. Catholicism implores that we serve our fellow man. Our school mission calls for us to model and inspire service within ourselves and the global community. This is carved deep into the foundation upon which our school sits as a structure to house this teaching. We trust that if we teach you why you serve others, you will be inspired, and if we show you how to serve others you will be capable. Finally, we trust that if we serve along side you, you will see the power of this action. With these elements in ...

On the first day of school this year, we began with a service in the church, which I believe is the perfect place to begin the journey of a school year. At the end of the service, I asked students to reflect upon what it means to be a student at St. Mary Magdalen. Being a member of this community distinguishes us in a number of ways, and it is important for us to keep those at the forefront of our minds. I want to share the message I delivered to the students with you.   What does it mean to be ...

Uniform vests donated to Catholic School in Zambia

In the spring of 2017, we were notified by Dennis Uniform (our uniform provider for over 40 years) that they would be changing the shade of green they offered for uniform vests.  The dark hunter green color that we had grown accustomed to was changed to a lighter version of green.  So after much internal discussion and many negotiations with Dennis Uniform Company, we decided to require the new color for the 2017-2018 school year in order for all students to be "in uniform".  To offset the cost of a new vest, Dennis offered vouchers to families which Exciting News Leave a comment
