MStM alumni continue to make a difference after graduation, having grown into productive and lifelong learners. MStM works hard to live its vision: A school community that fosters personal excellence and responsible citizenship.

PROPOSED 2023-2024 School Calendar

The district administration has released the PROPOSED school calendar for the 2023-2024 school year.  The calendar is very similar to the 2022-2023 calendar.  If you have comments for consideration, please email me at kevin_fiene@mstm.us.  The plan is to have the required public hearing on the calendar prior to the April 10 Board meeting, then have the calendar approved at the meeting.
