CYO Photos needed for Yearbook
If you have any children on any St. Mary CYO team, it would mean a lot to the 8th Grade students, if you could take and send pictures for the yearbook. They are working hard on the yearbook and would love to add many pictures of CYO activities as possible.  Please send any/all CYO pictures that you have to yearbook@smsk-8.org. This would be greatly appreciated by our 8th Grade!

Science Fair
We are looking for help to keep our Science Fair going into the future. If you think you would be interested in helping our Science Fair inspire your scientist, please contact Kevin Conwell to discuss.

Remember to Like Us on Facebook!!


St. Mary Catholic School participates in several federal programs that provide our students with a variety of materials and services. It is one of the ways in which we receive benefits from your tax dollars. We certainly wish to receive our fair share of federal dollars in education and your assistance is critical in supporting our efforts.
Please complete and return the survey by Friday, March 3rd. Your prompt response, which will be kept confidential, is used only in reporting the numbers of students in St. Mary school who are entitled to materials and services, and in no way has any effect on financial assistance you receive through parish, school, or private programs. A parent’s last name is not required on this survey.

Please return the form as soon as possible in a sealed envelope or email to school no later than March 3rd. If you have any questions or concerns about this survey, please feel free to contact Principal, Kevin Conwell.

You can access the survey form here.

Thank you for your support of our efforts in providing all students at St. Mary’s with the materials and services they justly deserve through federal programs.



At this time, St. Mary School is interested in measuring how well we have met your expectations so far this year as your child’s/children’s educational partner. We all share a common goal of making St. Mary School the best that it can be for our children. Your feedback is essential as we strive to meet this goal. To that end, we ask that you complete a survey online to help us assess how we are doing.

You can access the survey here.

Thank you in advance for sharing your feedback.
Survey will remain open until February 24th.
