Dear 2nd Grade Families,

Can you believe we are entering the first week of June? I certainly cannot!  I am sure missing our end-of-year festivities and celebrating memories of our 2nd grade school year.  I plan to find special and unique way to commemorate our year, even though it may be a little different than years past.  We have a very special class picture that I am looking forward to sharing with the students.  Stay tuned for more details on how I will get this picture to your student!  It might be a last-day-of-school pick-up on June 12th or via mail, I will let you know! 😊

Report Cards for this Trimester:

I wanted to send some information about what you can expect from report cards this trimester.  We realize that this has been a unique method of learning for the students, so have chosen the best route of grading that will “do no harm.”  Therefore, you will notice that rather than a number grade, your student will either be “Meeting Standards” or “Working to Standards” in our essential understandings for 2nd grade.  I have been beyond impressed by the engagement of the students in distance learning, I will make sure that is reflected on the report cards as appropriate.

I am continuing to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Blessings,

Addison Borseth

My name is Melissa Morrier-Turk, I am a graduate of SMM (class of 1986) and have been a member of the parish community much of my life. I have a B.S. in Business with an emphasis in Human Resources from Central Washington University and have spent my 23 years working in this field, traveling all over the USA and Canada as an HR Director, as well as a corporate trainer. My husband Mike and I have two kids, our son will be a Junior at Archbishop Murphy High School and our daughter will be a 7th grader here at SMM. As a parent, I have been an active member of the SMM community, most recently wrapping up my role as the Parent Club President this year and V.P. last year. I have also been an active member of the auction for the past 8 years, along with numerous opportunities to volunteer in my children’s classrooms and through club activities. In my off time I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, anything outdoorsy really. I have absolutely loved working with and getting to know so many of the families here at SMM as a parent and am looking forward to getting to know you all better as part of your school community!
