Parents from all four grades began the school year on Sunday, September 10, with the annual back-to-school event. After picking up an information packet, parents joined Sr. Regina Ryan in the auditorium for a school address, and then followed their daughter’s schedule to visit all her teachers. Faculty members went over their courses and expectations for the year, and answered parents’ questions.
Following the classroom events, parents and faculty and staff mingled on the convent lawn at the annual social sponsored by the VMA Parents Association. Moms and dads enjoyed delicious food and drink, and caught up with each others’ summer news. Some parents also took the opportunity to shop for Villa Maria spirit wear at the pop-up school store.
Thank you to the VMA Parents Association and their volunteers for a lovely event on a warm and sunny afternoon.
