Where are you buying the ingredients for your Thanksgiving meal? Every Turkey Day "prepper" has those secret ingredients that make their signature dish stand out, capturing the memories for years to come.  If you're purchasing your ingredients from HEB, why not help out SMS in the process?! Before you brave the store, stop by the St. Mary's office and buy your HEB card, giving 5% back to our tribe!
Thank you to one of our wonderful St. Mary's parishioners for being our November sponsor.  Congratulations to Lisa Callahan, our October winner, sponsored by Mike & D'Ann Tatsch.
We are in need of more sponsors for our monthly giveaway!

Friday Lunch
Thank you to all of our families that RSVP'd for Friday's turkey lunch.  If you haven't yet RSVP'd, or your student failed to pull the bright gold sheet out of their backpack, please stop by the front office so we have an accurate headcount.  Older siblings are able to move down to earlier lunch to eat with younger siblings and family.
Lunch Times are as follows:
PK-2: 10:30-11:00
3-5: 11:20-11:45
6-8: 11:30-12:00 (early lunch due to early release)

Catholic Life Sweepstakes Raffle
Catholic Life Sweepstakes Raffle is a free fundraiser for our school that raised almost $13,000 last year! Check out the big prizes here: .
Every dollar of the raffle sales goes directly back to SMS so each raffle ticket sold impacts our school in a big way. Every ticket sold is someone saying, "I'm giving a $5 gift to SMS." If we all participate, our school wins to keep tuition low and improve our school.
There will be a kick-off Pep Rally on November 20 at 2:45pm in the gym to share the prize incentives with our students. Thank you to Tiffany Roeder, chairman and Delight Weigand, co-chairman for serving on this committee. If you are interested in knowing more and helping, please contact Mignonne at .

Veterans Day Ceremony
Thank you to all of our wonderful participants at our Veterans Day program last Friday.  A big "shout out" to St. Mary's alumnus Captain Michael Tatsch, US Navy (Retired), for speaking to St. Mary's students about sacrifice and responsibility.  We'd also like to thank the FHS drumline for performing, and an incredible debt of gratitude to the veterans who were in attendance who served our country faithfully.

Light the Night Parade
SMS will have a float for the Light the Night Parade on Friday, December 1 at 6:30pm. This is a fun way for the students to showcase our school to our community. Please mark your calendars for Float Work Nights on Tuesday, November 28 and Wednesday, November 29. We will share more about how students can sign up to ride and what theme the float will have in the eblast next week. Our elves are hard at work with the float design!
