St. Mary’s Institute open house slated for Wednesday

AMSTERDAM — St. Mary’s Institute, a private Catholic School, will hold a summer open house for its pre-kindergarten program on July 17, starting at 6 p.m. and ending at 7.

Prospective families will be able to meet Pre-K teachers, the teaching assistants, the school board members and admissions staff. A slideshow will be presented as well as a tour of the school. Free refreshments will be served.

Parents interested in other grades may attend as well, as SMI serves students age 3 through grade eight. Interested Pre-K students must be age 4 by Dec. 1, 2019, to attend SMI this fall. A free backpack filled with information about the school will be handed out to each student/family. SMI offers affordable excellence, with its full-day Pre-K academic program priced well below many area Pre-K-aged programs, according to a news release.
