Shrove Tuesday Pancake Celebration

This past Tuesday STMY Staff and Students celebrated Shrove Tuesday in the traditional flapjack way. It was the first time in a couple of years that we were able to celebrate this way as COVID Restrictions begin to come down.


We want to say a HUGE thank you to the Staff (many of whom came early) that prepared the meal and to our special guests, Trustee Teresa Makowecki and Constable Lappa for their volunteering as our servers. Much appreciated!


Life is so much "Batter" with Pancakes!

Ash Wednesday Liturgy

On March 2nd, our school community was very blessed to be able to have Ft. Robert Lee from St. Martin of Tours Parish share Ash Wendsday Liturgy with us! It was the first time in 2 years that we were be able to celebrate as an entire school family. Thank you to our school chaplain, Ms. Amy Yaremcio and Ft. Robert Lee for arranging this for our school.
