Principal's Message

Dear Stars and Future Stars,

Thank you for your interest in Mary Star of the Sea Elementary School. As principal, I am committed to providing an environment where your child will be academically challenged and able to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically. At Mary Star we provide our students with a strong academic curriculum, an excellent physical education program and a variety of co-curricular activities. We maintain a facility where you can be assured that your child is safe and secure; all staff and volunteers are Virtus trained  in safeguarding your children. Our Catholic Identity is strongly evident and ingrained in all aspects of our student life; prayer and the Sacraments are integral to our mission. We believe our role is to educate tomorrow’s Catholic leaders.
Mary Star of the Sea is staffed by qualified teachers, with many having advanced degrees as well as California State Credentials. Our faculty and staff are dedicated, caring, and love teaching the children of our community.  Our parents are actively involved in school life and readily support school activities and functions. We are truly partners in the education of Mary Star children.
This year our school goal is to purchase a new Social Studies curriculum. The Junior High series has an online curriculum for student and teachers to access including the entire text.  Kindergarten through 5th Grade have interactive assessments and learning tools as well as graphics that capture student interest.  We continuously strive to to stay current with technology and curriculum and welcome your support. Please contact the school office if you would like to respond to this Annual Elementary School Appeal.
I look forward to meeting you and your family, and I welcome the opportunity to show off our school site, faculty, and students.  Please call us to tour the school at any time.
 Sincerely,
 
Noreen Maricich
Principal
