Principal’s Message

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our school.

Saint Margaret Regional School in Buzzards Bay is a Pre-K through Grade 4 school focusing on academic excellence and Gospel values. Our Catholic faith is very important, and we strive to be a living witness to the Word of God in all that we do and say. Each year we set a school theme: for 2018-2019 our theme is: Shine the Light OF Christ, Matt 5:18.  We are proud to be accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges which is the official accrediting agency for schools and colleges.

Our preschoolers develop skills through creative play, song, art and through literature activities that foster a love for reading. Our preschool students attend art, gym and music class which gives them a well-rounded academic experience.

All of our students (Grades K-4) develop their reading skills through direct instruction of phonics and in classrooms with opportunities to engage in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Advancing children’s natural curiosity of mathematics learning is an important goal, and students learn using hands-on materials. Our teachers are highly experienced, and up-to-date on current educational practices. Their use of technology in the classroom, as well as in the media center is a great support to the various approaches within the lessons plans.

Our enlightened curriculum integrates Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science learning in project-based studies. At the same time, our curriculum promotes the ongoing practice and fluency of computation skills and the conventions of Standard English. Plus, we focus on the acquisition of advanced vocabulary through traditional learning methods. Our teachers are dedicated to the academic progress of their students.

Our students are thrilled that their schedules include Physical Education every week, as well as an art class, music education, Spanish and time in the media center. We use Chromebooks in the classrooms which are also equipped with computer stations and interactive white boards, to further advance teaching and learning.

We are pleased to share that we use the database called RenWeb. This data base is easy to use for parents to view grades and homework. Lesson plans are posted, as well as, the school calendar and announcements. In addition, we use an email and telephone broadcast system called SchoolMessenger to update families weekly of school events and school closings due to weather. Keeping families well-informed and connected to our school family is an important priority.

The Before and After Care program is an affordable way for working families to provide a safe experience for their children in the mornings and evenings with homework help. The opportunities for free play both indoors and out is also integrated within the program.

We hope you will consider sending your child to St. Margaret Regional School. We believe in a nurturing environment that embraces our Catholic faith, while offering students an opportunity for excellence in an atmosphere of academic education.

As you reflect and discuss the options and opportunities, St. Margaret Regional School, offers your child, please know that our school community will carry you in prayer.

 

In Mary’s Love,
