Race for Education
St. Mary School's Race for Education was amazing! A BIG Thank You goes out to everyone who donated (that includes all the supporters who donated their time to cheer on the kids)! Thank you very much to all of our families and friends for their unwavering loyalty to our school. Your help is greatly appreciated and keeps us a terrific school community. Check out the pictures in the slide show on the right and our Facebook site, for even more.

If you would still like to make a donation (our goal is $30K), it's not too late -- click the link below -- its that easy! Thank you for your continued support!

Art & Music News

Saint Mary students shined at the Archdiocesan Elementary Festival of the Arts held at Pope John Paul II High School! Over 80 student artists and digital animators were represented as well as over 20 musical performers! Thank you families for supporting the Arts here at St. Mary School!

Visit St. Mary's School online Art Gallery at Artsonia and St. Mary's Art Room Blog to find out what is going on in the Art Room! Both sites will be updated weekly, so keep checking back.

Photography Club...
Click the camera to see images taken by the St. Mary School Photography Club!! The students took some wonderful pictures, so be sure to check out their great work!

Parent Reminders...

Send in Notes...
Please remember to send a note to school stating changes to your child’s afternoon destinations. There are 275 students at Saint Mary’s and teachers will not have time during the day to check their email several times. We need your help in this communication effort. Many times a student come to the office saying “they are a car rider”, because they talked about it at home, but we have no note. Notes would alleviate all the undue stress.

Uniform - Exchange

Check out the Uniform Exchange if you have old uniforms to donate, or your child needs anything.

We continue to seek Nurses and Recess Helpers - Can you Help?

Our school is greatly in need of volunteers to help in the nurse’s room at lunch and recess time. Time would be 12:25 to 1:10pm. Can you spare 45 minutes? Primarily it is just knee scrapes and ice packs. We can really use your help! Parents/Grandparents - are you looking for some time around the children/ grandchildren? Please call the office if available. Thank you!

Please begin informing all graduates and their families to
join us. More details to follow! All parishioners and
friends of the parish are welcomed to this event.

PennDOT has closed the Route 73 (Skippack Pike) Bridge in Schwenksville and it will continue to be closed through December 2016. In addition, the structurally deficient bridge carrying Route 29 (Gravel Pike) over Swamp Creek in Lower Frederick Township is also being worked on and is scheduled to reopen in late October 2016. During construction, traffic on Route 29 (Gravel Pike) will be restricted to a single lane between Meng Road and Zieglerville Road, so allow extra time when traveling that route.








Do you Recycle? Please use the paper recycle bins across from Church and next to the school café. Saint Mary’s also collects: used ink jet cartridges, old cell phones, Box Tops, and Campbell Soup Labels.
