Mustang News!
School News:
September was a great month! We gathered together each week as a school family for 'Good Morning, St. Mary's', attended weekly mass, cheered at a pep rally each Thursday, enjoyed eating with grandparents at our annual grandparent's day luncheon, had a great visit from our assistant superintendent, Mr. Rob Whitworth, 2nd grade had a blast with Fr. Timothy at the 'Pastor's Pizza Party', and so much more.


Grandparents day is always one of our favorite days of the year. It is true joy on our students faces when they see a loved one is there to eat with them. If you missed the album on our facebook page from this year's Grandparent's Day Luncheon, you can still check it out here.
A live auction item at Going West for the Gold was for a class to be able to walk over and have a pizza party with Father Timothy. The 2nd grade class won this auction item. They walked over from school, were given a tour of the downstairs, and enjoyed pizza, fruit, cookies, and ice cream. Father gave each student a goodie bag as a thank you for coming. The kids asked father to share stories, so he shared that he studied in Rome, a story about Blue Bell ice cream, and several more. Fun was had by all! You can catch more pictures from this event here .
Our students served others in our community.

Each year a representative from Brookhaven comes to speak with our student council, and each year our students are in shock to know that there are kids their age that have lived the lives these boys have lived and done some of the things these boys have done. Many of the youth living at Brookhaven have had no guidance in their lives. They are learning the importance of bathing and brushing their teeth. Many come from situations most of us can not comprehend. 

Our student council reached out to our school family for help in donating items such as socks, body wash, towels, toothpaste, deodorant, basketballs, and more. This ability to give, not only helps these boys feel a little more human, it also gives our students a deeper understanding of the world around us. 
“Give something, however small, to the one in need. For it is not small to one who has nothing. Neither is it small to God, if we have given what we could.
-St. Gregory Nazianzen

Want to be a matching donor?

We've asked through #iGiveCatholic in the past and you all have answered with such great support. Thank you! Our restroom renovations are in the final stages of walk through and minor touch ups.

We hope to continue to make needed improvements in our elementary building. St. Mary's Catholic School is in need of new air conditioners through out our elementary building and solar screens on the windows of our upstairs 3rd grade classroom.

Our elementary building was built in the 1920’s and had an addition in the 1940’s. This building houses eleven classrooms, and eight of these classrooms use window unit air conditioning. The hallways and restrooms in this building are without air conditioning or heat. The building has single pane windows and it is especially difficult to keep our upstairs southwest facing (3rd grade) classroom at a comfortable temperature. Due to the construction of our older building, there is not enough area for duct work, and therefore sought options that do not need ducts, can cool and heat, and will be much quieter than the window units we currently have. 

St. Mary’s will be replacing the window units with ductless mini-split air conditioning (and heating) systems, and adding solar screens on the windows located in the 3rd grade classroom.  

If you would like to make a large end of the year gift and are interested in being a 'matching donor' for this year's #iGiveCatholic on #GivingTuesday, please contact Mrs. Adrienne Janek at adrienne.janek@stmaryswest.com.
