From your Principal...

Dear STM Families,

Thank you!  With the support of our school and church community, Oktoberfest was such a fun day and a wonderful success! We could not have done this without the many parents, teachers, and staff who dedicated their weekend to the event. It is so heartwarming to see all our children and families enjoying their time together. Congratulations on a job well done to all students for selling Oktoberfest Raffle Tickets. As a school community we sold $37,000.00 of tickets. This is amazing! Our top selling families are:   1st place - The Kinsel Family, 2nd place - Tamayo Family, 3rd place - The Vodehnal Family.

The 7th and 8th grade classes at St. Thomas Aquinas School in Lansing, Michigan made a video in support of Hurricane Harvey victims. One of our 7th grade students, Joey, attended STA before moving to Houston.  We shared this video with the students last Friday after Mass and wanted to share it with you as well.  Click here  to view. STA School has been very supportive to STM and the Houston Community wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Please join our Tiger Football team for their GHCAA 6 Man Football Division Championship Game this Saturday morning at St. Thomas High School, located at 4500 Memorial Dr, 77007. Kickoff is at 9:00am in the stadium. Plan to come out for a fun fall football game and cheer our Tigers onto victory!  

Lastly, this Friday we will distribute 1st Quarter Report Cards via emails. Please make sure your email address listed in Renweb is correct. See Renweb section below for additional information.

Things to know:

Have a good night.
Yours in Christ,
 
Kristen Thome                                      
Principal
