  • Justin Loew: Justin Loew, WAOW News 9 meteorologist, came to visit Grade 5 and 6 Science class. He explained about different kinds of severe weather and how he does forecast on TV with a "green screen". He did some experiments with air pressure and clouds and created a mini tornado. Justin showed different kinds of weather equipment including a weather balloon. The students had very good qustion for him and he tried to asnwer them all. Thank you, Justin Loew for coming to St. Mary's School!

  • Quarter 1 Wrap Up: The first quarter of the 2019 - 2020 school year is in the record books. Students were recognized for their accomplishments in academics as well as sports. It's always a good time when they put a little twist on their sport with some friendly competition. The 8th graders were no match for the staff though as they took their defeat in volleyball with grace and dignity.

Guest speaker, veteran Dennis Dahlke spoke to an attentive audience eager to learn about our veterans, St. Mary's Band and Choir played and sang a couple patriotic songs, Marathon High School Color Guard performed to "Still a Soldier" by Tracy Atkins. Thank you to all the veterans who serve for our freedom.
