More News - your STM weekly insights into discovering More

More News
(The newsletter formerly known as Family Flyer)
Thank you!

Parents of our wonderful children here at St. Thomas More Catholic School, we want to  thank you   first and foremost for doing such fantastic work as parents and making the choice to be a part of the STM community! Thank you also for your patience as we transitioned from the former Family Flyer format to More News. This year is a year of renewal and revival with many new faces and ideas in the fold.

Below you will find the highlights of what is going on at the school and what is on the horizon. Please remember that you and your children are our best marketing resources and we need your help to spread the word about events and the school. Whether that is by word-of-mouth or by social media, every bit counts and helps! Together, we are MORE!

Ways in which you can help others discover MORE:
  • Come to the office and pick up a MoreFest yard sign (and help spread the word)
  • Continue to sell those MoreFest raffle tickets like crazy!
  • We need more Google reviews (even if you don't write anything)
  • We could use greater Facebook exposure
  • Our website has many useful resources
Thank you and I am excited to be here at St. Thomas More Catholic School!

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam,

James Olsen
Advancement Director

Thank you all from the Parrish Family!

The Parrish Family (Gene - former STM PE teacher and his wife Barbie) want to extend their thanks to the STM community and the many teachers who donated books to them for the Heritage Days Parade in Bloomington this coming weekend. The books will be handed out to children during the parade. They will be distributing over 1500 books thanks to your participation. Thank you for giving so generously!

Please pray for the repose of former STM Head Engineer Tom Rowe's soul as he sadly passed away this Wednesday morning. He will be missed and we lift him and his family in our prayers.
Lord, hear our prayer!
