Veteran's Day: Veterans from American Legion Post 469 came to help us celebrate Veteran's Day. Paul Fredrickson, Post Commander gave us a new appreciation for what service men and women sacrifice when they enlist in the military. St. Mary's Band and Choir played and sang a couple patriotic songs, Mr. Koch spoke and shared his friends' experience in the military and Marathon High School Color Guard performed to "American Soldier" by Toby Keith. Thank you to all the veterans who serve for our freedom.

CWES: Students from UW-Stevens Point run the camp CWES (Central Wisconsin Environmental Station) teaching students about the environment as well as teaching them communication and team building skills. Our 5th and 8th graders had an amazing time learning, exploring, playing games, solving problems and building a campfire. We are grateful to the students from UWSP and to Home and School for providing this wonderful opportunity.

All Saint's Day: Mrs. Kind has a saintly class of first graders. Check out the procession of saints from All Saint's Day.

Farm Visit: Fourth graders are grateful to the Marathon FFA and Keith and Juli Kreager for teaching them about life on the farm. It's a real treat to see the animals, learn about the farm machinery and all the work that goes in to a dairy farm.

Wilke's Pumpkin Patch: Autumn is one of our favorite times of the year. 4K - 1st graders were able to have some fun at Wilke's Pumpkin Patch. There's a whole lot more to do than just pick out your own pumpkin. Thank you to Home and School for providing the bus transportation to this energizing field trip.

Blessing of the Animals: Each year our students look forward to having their pets blessed in celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. This year we had some rabbits, cats and kittens and dogs of all sizes.

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 Dorsey Levens, and worked for this event. St. Mary's School and Parish are grateful for your generosity.

Chicken Dinner/Country Store: Many volunteers get up early to bake cinnamon rolls and prepare the food for the chicken dinner. This annual event is a favorite of so many from the parish and surrounding communities. Thank you to all who help to make this fun, family event so successful.

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.

Mind Trekkers: 6th and 7th graders traveled to North Central Technical Institute to see the Mind Trekkers. Mind Trekkers STEM Road Show brings the excitement of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to the students. Undergraduate and graduate students helped them explore these areas of education and ignite the fire within them.
