Parents Who Pray - This is an opportunity to gather with other parents to pray for our school and our children as well as any special intentions you may have.  Take advantage of our Early Bird drop off for your children and then join us in the Bride's Room of the Holy Family Center at 7:15 a.m. every Tuesday for the remainder of the school year.  We hope this new way to start your Tuesday will be a New Year's resolution you will want keep.

Catholic Schools Week is here! Please read the following bullets to have your child involved in sharing our school with our community. By promoting SMS, you are helping us recruit new families and that could mean money back to you. Check out our referral program:
Registration is now open for 2018-2019.

Is there anything more identifying that we are St. Mary's than our plaid? Please have students wear their school uniform to any mass or other church service this coming weekend (January 27-28) and next weekend (January 3-4) to show our support for Catholic Schools. Students will receive a free dress coupon for each church service they attend in uniform. Not Catholic? That's okay- have your child attend their respective church service in school uniform to qualify too! To qualify, parents must send a signed note to their student's teacher to confirm free dress was earned.

Join us for the parade on Monday at 2:30! The whole school and parish office is in it.
Family Luncheon
We will be sending home RSVP notes with students. Adult meals are $8.
