Home Support St. Mary's School

At parish schools, the head of the parish and school is the parish priest with the principal assisting the parish priest in the administration of the school. Unlike public schools that have a school board that is a managerial board (their votes are binding and must be followed), parish schools have committees that are advisory only. St. Mary's, like most parish schools, has an education and home and school committee.

St. Mary's Home and School Committee

The Committee has several objectives, as follows:

  • To unite the efforts of the parents, teachers and other parishioners of St. Mary's in providing each child with a quality Catholic education.
  • To provide a communication link between the home and school.
  • To provide an opportunity for parents to become more involved in their children's education.
  • To promote family togetherness.
  • To welcome new students and families to St. Mary's School.
  • To provide resources and monetary support to St. Mary's School.
  • To support the staff members at St. Mary's School.

The Committee raises money to support our students' educational and social opportunities through technology, accelerated reader programs, science programs, high school and post-secondary scholarships, student activities and field trips.

The primary fundraisers include:

  • Cheesecurd stand
  • Pumpkin Patch (Check out the fun and great donations for the Pumpkin Patch)
  • "Souper" Bowl Sunday (Co-chaired by Catholic Order of Foresters)
