Milk Moola: For the last 15 years, Kwik Trip Inc. has offered the Milk Moola fundraising program to thousands of organizations in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  During that time, we have contributed over $4 million dollars to those organizations.  It has been just one of many ways Kwik Trip have given back to the communities. 

After assessing the program we have made the decision to end the Milk Moola program and reallocate our efforts and donations in a different direction – in order to more effectively serve our communities.  We want to thank all of you for being part of this program for so many years.  All Milk Moola redemptions will need to be turned in to St. Mary’s School office by March 22, 2019.  Thank you for supporting St. Mary’s School through the Milk Moola program.

State Send Off: We are so proud of our students competing at state. Congratulations to Charlotte Gruetzmacher who is competing at the State Spelling Bee and to Mason Seehafer who will compete in the State Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest. We celebrated the 1st place win of our Academic Team at Brains and Brawn after receiving the traveling plaque.

100th Day of School: It seemed as if we were never going to reach the 100th day of school because the weather kept delaying us. But finally, we made it. Check out all the fun we had.

Roller Skating: Athough it took us three tries to get there due to snow days, the students were finally able to go roller skating at Melody Gardens in Marshfield. As you can see through the pictures, they had a wonderful time. We are grateful to Home and School for providing the buses and to Fischer Transportation for their donation of one bus to transport our students.

Minion Monday: Although Mother Nature kept cancelling our Catholic Schools Week plans, we persisted and finally were able to have a little fun with Minion Monday. Persistance pays off.

Mission Carnival:
We wish to thank everyone that donated items, worked the games, and purchased tickets for the Mission Carnival. The students had a lot of fun and we were able to raise $1653.45 that we will donate to our Diocesan Mission Office for our sister parish in Bolivia and Casa Hogar Juan Pablo II orphanage.

Spelling Bee Champion: Congratulations to Charlotte Gruetzmacher who is the 2019 CESA Spelling Bee Champion. The Bee was held February 5th at Marathon High School. Charlotte will be competing at the State Spelling Bee in Madison on March 16th. We are so proud of her accomplishments.

Grandparent's Day:
It is one of the most special days of our school year, the day we welcome our grandparent's to join us for Mass, a special program and a social. How blessed are the students of St. Mary's to share this special day with the people who are such an important part of their lives.

Children's Museum: 4K - 1st Grades enjoyed a morning exploring and using their imagination at the Children's Museum of Central Wisconsin.

Brains and Brawn: The Brains and Brawn Tournament held in La Crosse was a fun and exciting event. We are fortunate to take three teams, a Brains team and boys' and girls' Brawns teams. The Brains team took 1st place and are the first team in the history of St. Mary's to accomplish this feat. Congratulations to the Brains team on their success and all three teams on their excellent representation of St. Mary's School.

Quarter 2 Wrap Up: The end of the quarter is a time to celebrate student accomplishments throughout that quarter. Students were recognized for their generosity, their academic and athletic skills as well as AR, Honor Roll, Rocket Math and Spelling Bee. We are proud of their accomplishments.

Spelling Bee: The NERR (North East Rural Region) Spelling Bee was held Wednesday, January 23 with five students from St. Mary's competing. The overall champion of the event was St. Mary's own Charlotte Gruetzmacher. The top three spellers from our school go on to compete in the CESA Regional Spelling Bee on Tuesday, February 5. Congratulations and good luck!

Free Throw Contest: We are proud to present the winners of the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest.
