“Learning takes place once very basic needs are met. Children need to build trusting relationships, have a sense of safety and security in their surroundings and know that they are not expected to fit into a mould.”Johanna Bambridge

We were delighted to welcome Sr. Florence Muuka, the Superior of Zimbabwe and Zambia Region to Marymount. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to connect with the RSHM Zimbabwe Mission and hear about where all of our efforts go! Parents and teachers also had the opportunity to sit and speak with Sr. Florence, and we are appreciative of everyone who came to speak to Sister – she was overjoyed to meet the people who help her mission in Zambia and Zimbabwe so much!

Letter from Mrs. Bambridge to the Marymount Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)
Dear Parent – Teacher Organization,
On behalf of the entire school, I take this time to thank you for the very generous gift to the school, ear marked for the Fablab.
Your gift will allow us to buy more materials for the Fablab and increase the possible usage of this space.
We are grateful that you have selected to support this incredible endeavor as it cuts across all curriculum areas and is definitely for all our grade levels.
As we near the end of the school, I wish to thank each and every one of you for the on–going support, great contributions and much love given to the school and to me, personally. It has meant so much to us all.
Katie, you have been an extraordinary leader, with an extraordinary team of dedicated and giving members.
Have a lovely summer and God keep you all safe.
If you are leaving us, remember that Marymount is always a home for you.

This year's editions of Marymount's Digital Citizenship Week and the Think Pink Anti-Bullying Campaign were combined into one, as the main focus of Think Pink this year is on digital citizenship! In the digital age, bullying has taken to the internet with "cyber-bullying," making this year's combination especially pertinent, and Marymount is committed to teaching our students good digital citizenship. A special thanks to our guest speaker, Jon Santiago, for participating in this year's events!
