PICTURE DAY
LifeTouch will be campus Wednesday, August 30th to take fall pictures of our students.  More information will go home the first week of school.

Apache Swag from FanCloth
It's never difficult to spot an Apache in a crowd because our families are always supporting St. Mary's School by sporting their Apache gear.  We are preparing our official St. Mary's spirit shirt design for the 2017-2018 school year that may be worn by our students on spirit days.  In the meantime, we have a list of items made available by FanCloth for our parents to shop Apache swag.  To be clear... these items are not the official SMS spirit shirt and will not be allowed on spirit shirt days, but this is a great opportunity for our parents to sport a wide array of St. Mary's blue.  Check out the Apache store on FanCloth HERE .  The purchase window closes on the first round on September 8th, so get your orders in now!
