CYO News

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!

Support the Troops Day

A Hero’s Welcome was so grateful for the donations made by St. Mary’s students last year for the Support the Troops Day. A Hero’s Welcome was able to send 2000 care packages to our deployed military with our help! We are collecting items again this year for the Support the Troops Day, being held on April 30th. St. Mary’s will be collecting personal size hand sanitizer and men’s deodorant. We need to have our donation ready for pick up by April 7th. Please start sending these items in as soon as possible. We will put a box in the lobby for your donations.

Political Action Needed

House Bill 250 proposes to increase tax credits available under the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program and the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) program. The tax credit scholarships have benefited our students seeking a Catholic education at St. Mary’s. Every year we are able to help many students get a scholarship that permits the parents to send their children here to St. Mary’s. Please take some time to urge your state Representative to invest in the future of St. Mary’s through the expansion of the (EITC) and (OSTC) programs by voting YES on HB 250.

Congratulations to...

...Pat McCafferty and Paige Larson who earned Honorable Mentions at the Montgomery County Science and Research Competition!!

Our 7th and 8th grade Honors Math students participated in the annual PJP Mathletes competition on Thursday, March 9th. The problems were challenging, and the students persevered competing with over 160 students. They all received acknowledgement for their participation. Meredith received a medal for scoring in the top 10% of the results.
