Whatanight it was
Thank you, SMS families and friends for turning out for our Apache Whatanight. Whataburger gave 20% of sales back to SMS so we received $810! It was a great night off from cooking and families got to dine out together. We appreciate Whataburger supporting St. Mary's!
We hope to have one Apache Night Out a month so look for the announcement for September.
Thank you to all those who have committed to help us this year. We filled all spots!
1st Place in the Gillespie County Fair Parade
Congratulations to our spirited Jr. High Athletics that won a 1st place!
Everyone buys groceries but not everyone buys HEB cards, which donate 5% back to the school. We are looking for ways to increase HEB card sales. If you have any great ideas that you would like to share, please take a second and fill out this form:
In the wake of the devastation experienced on the Texas coast, St. Mary's Catholic School is looking to answer BIG! We will be sending home information soon with our plan of action, but in the meantime, we will begin by collecting HEB cards to send to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Come in and do your part by purchasing an HEB card for those who have lost so much.
Presentation on the Family
Deacon Andy Thomas will be presenting a reflection on the family titled, "The Domestic Church in the Modern World," on Thursday, September 28, in the Holy Family Center at 6:30 p.m.
All are invited to attend!

Shirt orders are due THIS FRIDAY by 4:00 in the front office. Shirt orders may be turned into your child's homeroom teacher.
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
. The purchase window closes on the first round on September 8th, so get your orders in now!
