Q4 Wrap Up: The year was packed with learning, field trips, sports and academics. Our Quarter 4 Wrap Up highlighted a few of the events to round out a terrific year.

Employee Years of Service Recognition Banquet: We are proud to recognize our faculty and staff who are dedicated to the children of St. Mary's School and Catholic education. Congratulations to Miss Globensky - 25 years, Mrs. Jacobson - 10 years, Mrs. Paul - 10 years, and Mrs. Mader - 5 years. Thank you for your dedication to the students of St. Mary's. We also congratulate Mrs. Jacobson on her retirement after 38 years of teaching in Catholic schools and thank you for inspiring the minds of our youth. You did your best, now let God do the rest! May God bless your retirement.

8th Grade Service Day: St. Mary's 8th graders divided up and helped clean up at St. Mary's Cemetery and St. Anthony's Spirituality Center. After their service work was done they returned to St. Mary's and set the wooden cross, constructed by Kip and Tanner Hanke. (Thank you, Kip and Tanner.) The students then placed a cross necklace on the large cross. This is symbolic of their faith in God and will be an annual project for the 8th grade graduates. The Hill of Crosses in Lithuania is the inspiration for this project. Then the students, along with Deacon Hilts and Mr. Koch, played volleyball and softball at Marathon City Sports Center and enjoyed a cookout of brats and hamburgers to top off the day.

8th Grade Graduation: We said farewell to the 8th grade class as they begin their new journey in high school. May they always keep God as their compass and remember the foundation they received here at St. Mary's School. Congratulations, graduates.
