Thank you is not enough to say to all of the people who helped our students during the last few months. This time away from school is certainly not something we ever anticipated. Our parents, grandparents, and friends stepped up and your child is far better off for that! The beginning of our school philosophy is, “St. Mary Catholic School is a Faith Community – students, parents, staff, parishioners and friends. Teachers, in partnership with parents, are dedicated to providing the spiritual and academic development of each child.” We realize that without our students, parents, staff, parishioners, and friends we would be nothing! St. Mary students are blessed to have their parents working in a partnership with our staff! God bless all who support our students at St. Mary School!

8th Grade Graduation

Congratulations to our 8th grader, Catherine Hayes, on her graduation from St. Mary School. We celebrated last week with our last School Mass of the year, followed by a delicious breakfast (social-distancing-style) cooked by Mrs. Mailloux and Mrs. Dvoracek, and were treated to a special appearance by our music teacher, Guistino Carrano, and Mr. Gary Stutzman, who offered to play the graduation march on their tubas. 🎼😍Finally, a special thanks to Mrs. Amy Baldwin for putting this great farewell video together!!
