Winter 2016


Dear Members of the St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Community:


We are now halfway through the regular school year!  Classes and programs have been going very well, and we had a very successful Regents week here in the high school, with our students passing exams required for graduation. 


We have a multitude of exciting field trips occuring, including trips to: a local news station to observe live weather broadcasts; Niagara University as part of a student math project on scale models; and Target for students to practice comparison shopping and budgeting.  Additionally, we have our regularly occurring field trips to work experiences at Marshall's, Sisters of St. Joseph retirement home, Good Shepard Chuch, Habitat for Humanity, JoAnn Fabrics, and D'Avolio Oils, as well as our weekly trip to SABAH for ice skating.


As we head into spring, we look forward to our upcoming school shows: the Music Show, Talent Show, Gym Show, and the Drama production of Alladin.  We look forward to seeing you soon!


It is truly our honor and privilege to teach and work with your children.   The faculty and staff at SMSD are tremendously dedicated to your child’s success.  Our doors are always open to you.
