St. Mary School Gallery on Artsonia

Please view our school's amazing artwork by visiting Artsonia! Parents if you have not granted permission yet, please do so online so your child's art can be seen!


Attn: CYO Photos needed

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!

Service Project - Volunteers still needed
Thanks to all for your generous donations toward our "Special Blankets for Sick Children" Service project. By providing these, we will have a big impact at Children’s Hospital! We are looking for helping hands to come and cut fleece to specific sizes before 1/26. We will also be doing this in school with 5th and 6th grade students on 1/26. On 2/2 we need volunteers in the classrooms to assist the children assemble the blankets After 2/2, we need volunteers to wash and dry the blankets, fold them, and place them in plastic bags. Bags will be provided. Please contact Please contact Amelia Missimer if you would like to help in any way.
