INCLUSIVITY at St. Mary School

INCLUSIVITY at St. Mary School

INCLUSIVITY at St. Mary School

INCLUSIVITY (n.) A new way of naming our commitment to and practice of inclusion. As in, Saint Mary School’s spirit of inclusivity. Involving all students in every aspect of the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual experiences that define Saint Mary School…….

“Inclusivity” won’t be found in the dictionary, but it is vibrantly alive and practiced at Saint Mary School in each classroom, by each teacher, and affecting every student.

We at Saint Mary’s recognize that each student is unique, and our entire faculty and staff are attuned and committed to facilitating the growth and success of all our students, including those with special needs. As advocates, role models (for colleagues and students alike) and confident instructors, our teachers go the extra mile to differentiate and reach all students at their learning levels, working additional hours, meeting with colleagues and family members to identify needs and optimize classroom experiences, and dedicating themselves to providing each child who strives in his or her own way, to feel and know success. We see and celebrate the richness of diversity in our classrooms; we seamlessly accommodate and modify techniques to meet children’s needs; we communicate and collaborate with colleagues and specialists; and most importantly, we harbor no fear or reluctance to welcome students with special needs. We live and share the spirit of inclusivity – every day – in a school where all are welcomed.

Christmas Gifts for St. Agnes Convent

Christmas Gifts for St. Agnes Convent

Christmas Gifts for St. Agnes Convent

Advent is a special time in our liturgical year to prepare for Christmas. What better way to truly get into the Christmas spirit than by remembering those who are less fortunate?

Each year, St. Mary School helps families from the East Side area in Buffalo, served by the Sister of St. Francis at St. Agnes’ convent, by providing Christmas gifts and gift cards. These families would have no other Christmas gifts without our generosity.

Please label your child’s designated unwrapped gift with the appropriate name and send it into school by Monday, December 17th . Gifts will be assembled and delivered to Sr. Ann Helene at that time.

Thank you in advance for your generous and caring spirit.
