Welcoming/Hospitality Committee

During the summer months, the school hosts a number of events for new families to welcome them into our community. We call on parents at various times throughout the school year, primarily for food donations.

  • New Family Orientation is a casual cocktail gathering held in June to give new families a brief introduction to Saint Mary’s Catholic School.  Volunteers help answer questions and share insight.
  • Kick-off Cookout is held in August when school resumes as an opportunity for fellowship and community.
  • New Family Mentor Families: New families are partnered with experienced families as a resource throughout the school year.
  • Back-to-School Teacher Luncheon: This luncheon is held the week before classes begin when the teachers are busy preparing their classrooms for the new year.
  • Faculty & Staff Appreciation Week: During this week, we take a few moments each day to recognize the hard work and gifts of time and talent our faculty and staff share with our children.
  • Grandparents’ Day Reception: Bake your favorite treat for grandma and grandpa as they join us for the Spring Sing and classroom visits.
