  • Willow Springs: Although the weather was rainy, cold and cloudy, it didn't dampen the spirits of the 4K - 1st graders who spent the afternoon at Willow Springs Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze. Students were able to pick their own pumpkin and had a great time.
    Thank you to Willow Springs for the fun afternoon and to Home and School for providing the transportation for this event.

  • Breakfast at St. Mary's: Any time we can bring generations together it warms our hearts. Parishioners at daily Mass were invited to school to have fresh homemade cinnamon rolls, coffee, and juice. Four-year old kindergarten students were happy to be able to spend time with them and play BINGO as an added bonus. Special thanks to Suzie Martin and Pam Schulz for making the delicious cinnamon rolls, and to Home and School for sponsoring this wonderful event.

  • Parent's Night: Volleyball players took time to recognize and thank their parents for all the sacrifices they make in order for their children to be in extra-curricular activities. Thank you, parents. It is because of you that your children have wonderful opportunities to try new things and become well rounded people.

  • Pumpkin Patch: St. Mary's Home and School held the annual Pumpkin Patch fundraiser. Thank you to the many who donated pumpkins, gourds, hay bales, corn stalks, canned goods, homemade goodies, hats, mittens, fall decorating items. It's is because of your generosity this fund raiser is successful. Thank you to all who came out on that rainy Saturday and supported our event.

  • Blessing of the Animals: The feast day of St. Francis of Assisi is a special day at St. Mary's School. St. Francis had a boundless love of animals and nature and in celebration of his feast day, families bring their pets for a special blessing from Father Joe.

  • Packer Tailgate Party: Another year is in the record books for our Packer Tailgate Party. We are amazed year after year at the generosity of our community. Thank you to everyone who donated, purchased items, came to meet Frank Winters, and worked for this event. St. Mary's School and Parish are grateful for your generosity.

  • Little Red Schoolhouse: 4th graders from St. Mary's School were able to experience first hand what school was like many years ago. They dressed in clothing much like what was worn back then and took their cold lunch in tin cans. The more authentic they could make the day, the better the experience. Thank you to the Marathon County Historical Society for providing this great opportunity.
