Do/Did you have a family member that has served in the military?

For Remembrance Day, STMY is planning on celebrating those family members from our school community who have served our country. If you have had someone from the past or is currently serving in the military, Mr. Kobelsky would love for you to email him ( a picture of them and a short paragraph explaining their service. He is planning on putting together a slideshow to honour those who have given their lives in service of the freedom of others.

Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Staff Faces of STMY:

There has been a lot of change in staffing at St. Mary's with multiple new people joining the team as well as old staff returning. Over the next few weeks, our newsletter will highlight some of these people in order to introduce or reacquaint you with them.

This week we introduce Miss. Amy Yaremcio. Amy is a familiar face to the STMY staff for the past few years as well as a STMY alumnus. Amy is the school Chaplain and teaches Biology, Jr. High Science and Religion along with our Career course at the school. We are so thankful for her spiritual leadership at the school and all of the activities she arranges for the staff and students of STMY.

Miss Amy Yaremcio

"Hi, I’m Amy Yaremcio.

I grew up on a farm just outside of Vegreville and was a student at St Mary’s back in the day.

I am excited to be wandering the halls as a teacher instead of a student, although you probably won’t be able to pick me out in the halls since I tend to blend in with the students (perks of being short I guess).

I teach Religion/Health 7, Religion/Health 8, Language Arts 8, Biology 20 and Junior High Comm Tech. I am also the school Chaplain this year."
