Who might this be nestled among the pengiuns?
Krista Laskowski - '01
Krista Laskowski is a very talented young adult and got her big music start at St. Mary's.
We interviewed Krista about how St. Mary's helped her in her music career as an Operatic Mezzo-Soprano and other special memories she wanted to share.
How did St. Mary's influence your career?
St. Mary’s helped grow my love of music. Mrs. Seppeler, the music teacher at the time, started “St. Mary’s Singers” which gave us the opportunity to make music outside of school hours. She also allowed us to perform solos in the Christmas and Spring concerts, encouraged us to work on solo pieces to perform at NYSSMA Solo Festivals, and had us participate in All-County and Area All-State Choirs.
Other St. Mary's memories?
I’ll never forget how excited we would get on dress down days, Mrs. Benson’s gum balls, Mrs. Dunlap’s reading bathtub, Mrs. Cowles’ fried dough on All Souls Day, participating in the talent shows, Sunday basketball, and playing four square during recess (just to name a few).
I will always cherish the friendships that I was able to make at St. Mary’s. To this day, my best friends are girls that graduated with me at St. Mary’s.
Thank you, Krista for sending us down memory lane during a season that reminds us to reminiscence.
Mary "Aunt Ginny" Crowley
Now, she is an angel in heaven watching over us still directing our theatre group and cheering us on. Aunt Ginny was never selfish and even her final wishes was not to receive flowers for her funeral, but to ask others to contribute to the school's St. Genesius Theater Program. Any donations received in her memory will be used towards the refurbishment of the stage.

Thank you for your support!
If you haven't had a chance or would like to still donate, we are still accepting donations.
We also have a few other options to support the school:
- Lakeshore Liquor and Wine on Routes 5&20 in the Michael's plaza will donate 20% of purchases made each Monday to the school. Just mention St. Mary's.
- Monthly Restaurants - Each month a local restaurant agrees to donate a portion of purchases made on a given day to the school. Check out our Facebook page StMarysCanandaigua to see what upcoming restaurants are participating.
Right now, the class of 1971 has the highest representation.
