Summer 2022

There will not be an MSL Summer Session at STMPS this August. Spend time outdoors and in a good book. Enjoy your family and God’s amazing creation. I can’t wait to hear about your awesome adventures when we return to school in the Fall. Blessings to you all! 


See you on September 6, 2022!

A New School Year

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 

We are all going to become remote- learning warriors. I am looking forward to being your MSL teacher and working with you to help you become the best Communicator you can be! That is one of our School-wide Learning Expectations. (Do you know the other SLE’s?) See you on the next Zoom!

Summer Session 2020

Unfortunately, we will be unable to gather for the annual MSL Summer Session at STMS this August. Keep reading; keep playing; keep smiling! 

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Ransford 

My Prayer

I bless you my friends

And pray for you here

That God will guide you

And hold you near

As you work and you play

With your sisters and brothers

As you do and you say

All you can for each other
