SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, May 19, 2018 is St. Mary's Day at Marathon City Sports Center - More details soon.

Making a Difference: Congratulations goes out to Miss Terese Globensky, 4th grade teacher who received the 2018 Making a Difference Award for St. Mary's School. A banquet was held at Memories Ballroom at which all those nominated from each school were recognized. We are proud to announce Miss Audrey Hilts, Miss Terese Globensky, Mrs. Val Kind and Mrs. Mary Lenard were all nominated for the care and dedication they show to their students. This award is made possible through the generosity of the Marathon School District Endowment Foundation.

Mardi Gras: Mardi Gras, also called Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday refers to events of the carnival celebrations, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday.  Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season.

100th Day of School: You may think the 100th day of school is spent counting to 100, but in Kindergarten they spent the day dressing and acting as if they were 100 years old! 4K and 1st graders got into the action as well. We hope you enjoy looking at their 100 day activities.

Mission Carnival: Every year just before Lent we hold our Mission Carnival to raise money to send to the missions. This year $1562.52 will be sent to the Diocesan Mission Office and will be divided up between our sister parish in Santa Cruz, Bolivia and Casa Hogar Juan Pablo II orphanage. We are very grateful to the parents and grandparents who donate prizes, cookies, cakes and candies for the carnival as well as the volunteers who work the games.

Grandparent's Day: We wrap up the week with Grandparent's Day Mass, program and social. This is a highlight of our week. When you look through the attached pictures you can see the great legacy these grandparents left for their children and grandchildren. There's nothing quite as special as when they spend this precious time together. Thank you, grandparents for the gift of faith you passed down from generation to generation.

Central Wisconsin Children's Museum: 4K, 5K and 1st grade got to wear off some energy at the museum before entertaining grandparents.

Melody Gardens: Roller Skating is one of the favorite days of Catholic Schools Week. It's always a successful trip if no one comes home with a broken leg or sprained ankle! Thank you, Home and School for providing the busing to and from our events.

Pajama/Comfy Clothes Day: It was hard to keep the faculty, staff and students awake as they came in their most comfortable pajamas or clothes. Luckily we got through the day without the students falling asleep in class.

Plaid/Flannel/Farmer Day was a hit. Take a moment and check out some of our students and staff.

Brains and Brawn: For only the second time in recent history the Brains Team came home with 3rd place medals. Taking 3rd out of 12 teams, the smiles on their faces tell the story. St. Mary's Girls' Brawn Team brought home the coveted Sportsmanship Trophy for the second year in a row. What an impressive accomplishment. The Boys' Brawn Team competed well in a tough draw and fought hard to the end. We congratulate and are extremely proud of these fine students. (Pictures from the Diocesan website)
