Principal’s Message

Our first annual Engineering Fair was a huge success. Thank you to all the parents who joined us for this special event. We plan to grow this event in years to come, and we look forward to seeing how this fair evolves as students build on their engineering skills.

A flyer went home today with our Holy Week activities. Please join us if you are able.

On Thursday, we will have a Holy Thursday Prayer Service with Washing of the Feet at 8:30 AM in the church that has been prepared by our 5th grade class.

On Friday, we will do our annual Living Stations at 10 AM in the church. This has been prepared by the 7th and 8th grade classes.

The staff of St. Mary School hope you have a great Easter filled with God's unending love. Enjoy the break, and we will see you on Monday, April 29th!
