Annual Fund

Visit  stmbr.org  to make your gift! We ask that all families consider a donation to the school to help us improve our instructional technology. We have eliminated many of the "asks" for money and items such as Fun Run, Alternate Dress Days, Candy Sales, Jambalaya dinners, and more. We invite you to make a gift to the school at or above what you spent in previous years on these fundraisers. Gifts can be made online at  stmbr.org  and can be spread over nine months. Thank you for your support! 
Distinguished Graduate

Each year, the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Baton Rouge are invited to recognize a Distinguished Graduate, who will be honored at a banquet during Catholic Schools Week in January. If you would like to nominate a graduate of St. Thomas More Catholic School for this award, please send an e-mail to Principal, Brian Moscona at mosconab@stmbr.org  by Monday, November 4 with the nominee's name and an explanation of why you believe this person is worthy of the recognition.

Holiday camps will be available on the STM campus for Thanksgiving break, Christmas break, Mardi Gras break, and Easter break this year. All enrolled students at STM in Grades PreK3-8th will be eligible to attend the holiday camps.

The camps will be run by STM Extended Care Director, Kelly Coreil, through her KidCam Program. These holiday camps are not STM camps and registration will occur through KidCam. STM is the host site for these KidCam camps, and only STM students will be invited to register.

More details will be sent out soon, and all questions about holiday camps may be directed to Kelly Coreil via e-mail at  coreilk@stmbr.org
