St. Mary's Communicator
On Sunday, April 16 we had nine St. Mary's Elementary students make their First Communion at St. Mary's Church! They were surrounded by members of our school community, their families, friends, and our St. Mary's Parish. We are thrilled for these students and their faith journey. The joys of First Communion aren't over yet! Sacred Heart Parish has their First Communion Mass on Saturday, April 29 and St. Peter the Apostle has their First Communion Mass on Sunday, May 7. Please continue to keep these children and their families in your prayers.

Preschool Mommy and Me Night
Our Preschool is hosting a Mommy & Me Night on Wednesday, April 26 from 5:30-7 p.m. The evening is JUST for current St. Mary's preschool students and their Mothers or Grandmothers. If a Mother or Grandmother is unable to attend, another female relative or family friend may attend with the student instead. We ask that older and/or younger siblings stay home this evening to keep the evening special for our students and their Mothers. The evening starts in the St. Mary's Preschool classrooms--Early Learners, Advanced Learners, and Pre-K. Everyone should dress comfortably and be prepared to make memories with your child!
CALENDAR FUNDRAISER: You can still turn in your child's calendar for our fundraiser. Please bring these to the office Monday, April 24. The calendar doesn't have to be full to turn it in. We are very close to the whole school earning a visit from an ice cream truck.
Sign up to volunteer and help with this fun event. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScVJnh8bFXtMoJ4OhceUAAAO-5R4A-nwA-jK1VRVgdZKebyFQ/viewform
