Performing arts, physical fitness, and healthy habits are integrated into our everyday practice.More >>

Relay for Life and the MS WALK:: Our school raised almost $2000.00 for this cause! Way to go St. Mary's School community! As  part of our philosophical views, each year we decide on a charity that we will support as a school community. Sometimes it is a local one and other times it is a global initative. In 2013-14 it was cancer research. In 2014-15 it will be the MS Society. We feel that it is important to give to others through financial aid or through our time and prayers and we also feel that is an important part of the development of the whole child that we model and teach children about needs of others. Thank you for taking this journey with us.
Thanks to everyone who supports our wonderful school!
