Wildwood Wildlife Park: The zoo is always a great time for our second and third graders. A great attraction this year is the Dino Dig!

Day at the Diocese: 7th and 8th grade students from St. Mary’s School spent a day visiting sites in the Diocese of La Crosse.   The students visited The Chapels of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Cathedral of St. Joseph the Workman, and The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  In addition, the students enjoyed a pizza lunch on the La Crosse Queen while cruising down the Mississippi River.  The day concluded with a stop at Grandad Bluff before returning home to Marathon.

Jump Rope For Heart: St. Mary's School raised money for the American Heart Association through our "Jump Rope for Heart" drive. Special thanks to Mrs. Kind for organizing this fun and worthwhile event. We also thank Dalton Lang who is our ambassador for the American Heart Association.

Hispanic Heritage Celebration: Thanks to a grant from the Marathon School District Foundation we have been celebrating the Hispanic culture throughout the month of May. It has been a great learning experience!

Spanish 4 & 5: As part of our Hispanic Heritage Celebration Senora Passineau and the Spanish 4 & 5 students from Marathon High School spent the afternoon teaching us about the Spanish culture. Muchas Gracias!!

Water Specialist: Mr. Andrew Aslesen, Source Water Specialist Wisconsin Rural Water Association, shared his knowledge of hydrogeology with the fourth and fifth grade classes.

Mrs. Fischer: We welcomed back Mrs. Fischer who has been off since October battling cancer. We were so happy she could return before the end of the school year.

Safety Patrol Trip: Our 8th grader, Mike Hahn represented St. Mary's School on the Safety Patrol Trip to St. Louis, Missouri. Mike has shared some of his pictures from the trip. Special thanks to Marathon Cheese Corporation for sponsoring this wonderful opportunity.

May Crowning: May is the month of Mary. We honor the Blessed Virgin Mary with May Crowning after Mass.

First Communion: The most anticipated day in second grade is First Communion Sunday! Our second graders prepared all year for this special day when they were able to receive Jesus in the body and blood for the very first time. May they always cherish the precious gift of Jesus in their lives.

Madison Field Trip: St. Mary's 4th Grade Class learned all about the great state of Wisconsin. Then they were able to see where government policies are formed at the Capitol building, learn interesting facts about the history of Wisconsin at the Historical Museum and "monkey around" at the Henry Vilas Zoo. Check out the days actvities.

The Kindness Wave continues to grow. March and April kind student representatives made cards to thank the American Legion veterans for their service. Spreading kindness is contagious! Make a ripple, create a wave...Kindness begins with you.

Central Wisconsin Environmental Station (CWES) is always one of the favorite field trips for our 5th and 8th grade classes. Take a look at the adventures they experience at this overnight camp. Thank you to the UWSP students who are their guides for the two days. We hope you enjoy the pictures of their trip.
