The purpose of Saint Mary School is to educate the whole child through programs encompassing the development of the students. This will enable students to become contributing members of the school, parish, and community.
St. Mary School recognizes the individuality of each student and strives to develop a well-rounded Christian personality. This will be reflected in a wholesome attitude and a respect for self and others as exemplified by Jesus in the gospel.
As a staff, we believe that a gospel-rooted educational environment where students experience Christian community service, students will be encouraged to integrate faith and Christian values into their daily lives and thus be provided with a healthy attitude which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
To that end, we strive to work in cooperation with parents to develop a climate of catholic educational excellence and a curriculum that is relevant to daily life.

LENT IS HERE
As a Catholic School we give a great deal of importance to the season of Lent.
We started the season by attending Mass on Ash Wednesday, which included the tradition of receiving the symbol of the ashes as a way to remind ourselves of our humility and our desire to sacrifice -- a way to show gratitude to Jesus for what he did by suffering and dying for us.
During this season, the Priests of Precious Blood Parish will provide the opportunity, during school time, for our students to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the teachers will provide special times of prayer and instruction aim at helping our youngsters understand the full meaning of Jesus' example of love and sacrifice.
In this, and in so many other ways, we help our families to help their children to learn that we should always:
LIVE THE MESSAGE OF JESUS !
