"Sometimes integrity means stopping to take a breath before you react. It means choosing your words carefully instead of lashing out. Integrity means being the best version of you, even when you are face to face with someone who isn't being the best version of themselves." Stephanie Homburg, Middle School Admin Assistant

Junie B. Jones Rescheduled!

A message from St. Mary Catholic School Fine Arts Director Eric Conner:


As many of you have heard, Junie B Jones has been rescheduled to Sunday, January 23 at 2pm and 5pm. If you had already purchased tickets to last Saturday's postponed performances, those tickets have been rolled over to the same show on the new date. For example, if you had 3 seats reserved for the Jan. 8 performance at 2pm, those same 3 seats are already reserved for you for the 2pm performance on the 23rd. If you had seats reserved for the Jan. 8 performance at 7pm, those same seats are already reserved for you for the 5pm performance on the 23rd. If you log into your ShowTix4U account, this should be visible.


  • If you are okay with this option, no further action is needed.
  • If you are not able to make the performance on the 23 and need a refund, please email econner@smcatholicschools.org with the subject line "Junie B - Refund," and I will release your seats and provide you a refund for your purchase.



If you plan to attend the Jan 23 performance but need to switch the time of your performance, you can either:


  • Go online to https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/60085 and reserve a spot for the new show, then email me for a refund of the tickets you no longer want (following the same steps as above), OR
  • Email me at econner@smcatholicschools.org with the subject line "Junie B - Transfer" and I will transfer your tickets for you to the best seats available for the other performance.



Unfortunately, MTI has denied our request to sell tickets for Junie B. Jones as a Video on Demand. We apologize for the inconvenience. The only tickets available will be for our live performances on January 23 at 2pm and 5pm. We hope you can join us for one of the live performances!


I ask that everyone please be patient, as I will likely be transferring a lot of tickets. You will receive a confirmation email once your tickets have either been refunded or transferred.

If you have any questions, please let me know and I will do my best to get you an answer in a timely manner. Thank you and have a great day!

6th Grade Shirts Are in!

6th graders can pick up their class shirts from the school office by dropping off a check for $12 made out to SMCS. A shirt was ordered for all 6th grade students based on the sizes parents submitted during summer course selection.


These shirts are designed to be worn by our students for all three years of their middle school career, and feature lyrics to their class song "Smile" by Sidewalk Prophets. They are considered dress code appropriate as long as it is not a liturgy dress day.

Upcoming Social

Olympic fever is upon us, and the middle school is ready to "Go for Gold" at our next social, January 28th from 3:15-5:30pm. We'll have music, snacks, and a couple of games to enjoy.


We are going "paperless" for this social! Click here to sign up, and send your student with $10 to the office to complete their registration. Online registration and payment must be completed by January 24th in order to attend.
