Teachers at St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point welcomed a flood of students and parents who eagerly poured into the building to start the first day of school on Wednesday, August 10th. A similar tradition has been followed since the school opened in 1872, but was put on hiatus during the last two school years. “Our assistant principal, Mrs. Kozlowski, brought out a speaker and blasted fun music and the atmosphere was so happy and positive this morning. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to see all those smiling students and their parents flowing into the building. We’re finally back to normal!” said Principal, Tom Ruiz.
