Dear STM Community,

Catholic Schools' Week has arrived! 

So far, the students have learned about Pennies for Patients and how the money they raise this week goes towards helping families in need, they've laughed it up with Comedy Sportz, dressed for success, and enjoyed STM trivia, Who's Who? (matching staff baby pictures to staff member), and Saints of the day. It has been a full schedule and we finish off a week of further exploring faith, knowledge, and service with History Coming to Life tomorrow in the form of Laura Ingalls Wilder (10AM in auditorium if you want to join) as well as a rousing game of Bingo to end the day.

Please don't forget to join other parents tomorrow morning for First Friday Coffee in the cafeteria from 8:15AM-9AM. It is a great opportunity to build community.

Thank you for all who turned in the early re-enrollment forms by yesterday. Keep reading to find out who the winner of the $500 off of next year's tuition is. 

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (to the greater glory of God), 

Mr. Olsen

School-Age French Class is back by popular demand!  

Classes will be held on Thursdays @ 3:20 between February 23rd and May 11th.  Enrollment forms are here and in the main office.  

We need at least 4 students to ensure the class moves forward.  Cost is dependent on enrollment and will range from $75 - $190 for the 10-week session.  Class tuition will be billed through TADS.

Questions?  Check with Ms. Breanna at
Please have forms turned in by February 15th.  
Registration in TADS will be open tomorrow!

Our online registration will be live sometime tomorrow for all grades (PreK-8) and ready for you to fill out. Please be on the lookout for an email from TADS. Your information from last year should transfer over where appropriate to help streamline the process. Tuition Assistance will be communicated later this Spring once TADS enrollment forms are completed. 

If you previously filled out a pre-enrollment form and paid the enrollment fee already, you may be required to do so again (a glitch that we will fix for next year). If this occurs, please contact Mrs. Barrett.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Mrs. Barrett at  or 651.224.4836, for K-8 or Ms. Breanna at or 651.224.9316 for preschool.  
Thank you for your continued support to St. Thomas More Catholic School and your commitment to Catholic education. You are the backbone of our school and we appreciate your continued partnership and loyalty over the years.

Keep on clipping those Box Tops!

Earn Cash for STM with Box Tops.  Buy, Clip, Send and Earn!

We NEED your Box Tops!!!  Get busy clipping those Box Tops.  February is the month to turn them into cash for our school.  We have collected almost $300 so far this year for our school.  

A few places to look for boxtops.....
1.  Check your kitchen cupboards, the pantry, and even the refrigerator.
2.  Do not forget your tissue boxes and office supplies. 
3.  Ask your family, friends, and even your neighbors! 

Do you have a Smart Phone?  Box Tops for Education has launched an App to help schools earn even more.  Download the App, find offers, buy products and scan your receipts.  And you can still clip the boxtop for cash for our school!

Do you want to send your kids on a scavenger hunt to find boxtops?  Print a collection sheet and have fun finding those boxtops.  Each one is worth 10 cents.

Collection boxes are located outside of the School Office and downstairs on the Preschool table 

Thanks so much and keep clipping!!!

And the winner of the $500 off next year's tuition is........
