OUR MISSION:
Saint Mary’s School exists to provide an opportunity to grow in faith, wisdom and knowledge in a challenging academic environment formed by Catholic tradition. We are committed to the application of Christ’s teaching by instilling the value of service to others while providing our students with the necessary skills to further their educational pursuits. Our mission as a strong Catholic community is supported by high-quality educators, dedicated staff and invested families.

 

 

 

 

All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 4:15

 

Dear Saint Mary’s Families,

IMPORTANT DATES:

Monday November 13 – Middle School Brown Bag Lunch

Wednesday November 15 – School Mass

(Please visit the school calendar regularly for up to date information as times and dates may change.)

PARENTS:

Capital One Matching Gift:   It has come to our attention that Capital One’s matching gift program is being replaced, and will not exist after the end of November. Until then, Capital One will match its employees’ gifts to Saint Mary’s from $25 to $2,000.

If you work for Capital One, please consider making a gift to Saint Mary’s Catholic School before the end of the month, so your generosity can make double the impact with the help of Capital One. Or, if you know someone who works at Capital One who’d like to support Saint Mary’s, please share this information with him or her.

Any gifts we receive will be put toward a new capital campaign, soon to be rolled out, that will raise money toward a 2018 renovation of the elementary wing, library, and front entrance of our school. Coming on the heels of Saint Mary’s 50th anniversary, these renovations will make our school more energy efficient, secure and set to best serve our students today and for the next 50 years and beyond.

You can give online here, or write a check to Saint Mary’s Catholic School and mail it to:

Thank you for all you do to support Saint Mary’s!
