Class Pictures
Did you miss your child's class picture order? Was that one of the papers conveniently found on "backpack clean-out night," about a week after it was due?!  Well, we have great news for you!  We have a limited number of extra copies of each class available in the front office for $12 each.

Congratulations to our students who competed in the Catholic Arts and Academic Competition in photography and art. This group of competitors did not travel to San Antonio with the others but represented St. Mary's Catholic School with their photography projects and artwork prior to the February 10 meet.

Photos from Mardi Gras Gala are available for free download at . Enjoy this video of an exquisite evening that benefitted SMS in a great way.

Thank you to Inside Story for sponsoring the February HEB prize. Did you know that you get to enter your name in a drawing for $100 HEB card each time you buy a card? Who doesn't love free groceries?
Let us hear from you to help us know what we could do better. If you are not currently purchasing HEB cards to do your grocery shopping with, what would make it easier for us to get more parents and parishioners involved? Email with those ideas. Thank you in advance!
