Parents from all four grades began the school year on Sunday, September 9, 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.
Undeterred by the wet weather, parents then mingled and caught up with friends at the annual social sponsored by the VMA Parents Association. Some parents also took the opportunity to shop for Villa Maria spirit wear at the school store. Thank you to the VMA Parents Association and their volunteers for a terrific event.
