It's finally Turkey Dinner Week! Who's ready for that yummy meal? Make sure to sign up to volunteer for one of the opportunities below and don't forget to bring a cake!

Homecoming was fun!
Thank you to those who supported the Apaches this past week and every week. We are blessed with the best parents.

The generosity of the Catholic Daughters is incredible.  Having just donated over $1,000 to our Hurricane Harvey relief effort, they are now sponsoring not one, but two $500 scholarships for St. Mary's students!  Please fill out THIS APPLICATION and submit it to Donna Durst by tomorrow, October 10th!

St. Mary's 4-H:
Meeting tonight in the cafeteria at 7PM.
Don't forget to enroll for the 2017-2018 year online at 4H Connect.

Don't forget to pack your child a lunch on Friday, October 13. The cafeteria is closed for Turkey Dinner preparation. Because of the various locations that our students will be eating lunch, we ask that their lunch is sent WITH them in the morning.  It will be very difficult to deliver lunches coming in throughout the day.

We still need volunteers!
Please look at timeline below and text Mignonne at 830-890-8868 or email at if you can help. We need everyone's help to make Turkey Dinner a success.
The areas we are still needing volunteers are:
Wednesday Unloading Truck
Thursday Set Up
Friday Meat Cooling
Saturday Dressing Prep, Cake Cutting and Turkey Prep
Sunday - Peas (need 1 heavy lifter), coleslaw, serving, carnival, bingo, beer serving (must be TABC certified)

PLEASE PLAN ON MAKING A CAKE. We will be cutting the cakes on Saturday evening so please bring your cake to the St. Mary's Holy Family Center on Friday & Saturday, October 13 & 14 between 8am-6pm. YOU WILL NOT BE CALLED THIS YEAR. WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! Un-iced bundt cakes are best for slicing. Please consider a donation in lieu of store bought cakes.
