  • Pinch Pots: 2nd Graders learned how pinch pots are made and had the opportunity to make their own and paint them. It was a great "hands on" experience.

  • Mardi Gras: St. Mary's Home and School hosted "Mardi Gras Nacho Bar" for families to celebrate together. After a brief meeting families enjoyed a time of fellowship, food and friendship.

  • Fridays with Friends: 4K and 2nd grade friends were happy to get together because our FUN FRIDAY activity was a SCIENCE EXPERIMENT!  After listening to a story called Hugless Douglas the students learned about "attraction" and "repulsion."  Mrs. Drexler used magnets to describe the BIG words and then showed the students the experiment called MAGIC MILK.  There were lots of "ooohs" and "ahhhhs" as the students observed the reaction.  The students then had the opportunity to try it themselves!  Lots of fun was had by all and when the "magic" was all done they enjoyed some stories about Valentine’s Day!

  • Mission Carnival: The Mission Carnival was a great success.  In total $2,000 was raised.  This money will be sent to our two Diocesan Missions, our sister parish in Bolivia and to the Casa Hogar Juan Pablo II orphanage.  Thank you to all who donated to or worked for the carnival.

  • BINGO: 4K and 2nd grade students played Bingo during their Friday with Friends session.

  • Grandparent's Day: Catholic Schools Week ended with celebrating Mass with our grandparents, followed by a program and social in the gym. Parents were then invited to visit classrooms. We are blessed to have a day set aside to celebrate our grandparents!

  • Crazy Hat/Hair/Bingo/Class Colors: Whew! There was a lot happening on Tuesday of Catholic Schools Week. Click on the link to see the activities.

  • Melody Gardens: The week started off on a "roll" as 2nd - 8th graders went roller skating at Melody Gardens. Not sure what they enjoyed more, roller skating or the snack bar! No injuries were reported so it was a great day!

  • Huey's Hideaway Museum: 4K - 1st Graders spent the morning at Huey's Hideaway in Medford. They were able to play, explore, pretend and use their imagination. Thanks to Home & School for providing the busing.

  • Honor Roll: Congratulations to our Honor Roll students.

St. Mary’s is a Catholic School in the Diocese of La Crosse following the Diocese curriculum. As a Catholic School we will teach and advocate our Catholic Faith.  All students are welcome in our school, and all parents and legal guardians must understand that Catholic Doctrine will be taught.  The passing on of our Catholic Faith is our number one priority.

St. Mary’s School respects the dignity of each individual and, therefore, will not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, ethnic origin, or gender in regard to enrollment or hiring practices.
