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.

As we move through spring, there always seems to be something going on at St. Mary School. Recently our two bands performed, on May 17th we welcomed many of our grandparents and other special people into the school as we celebrated the annual SMS Sprint, and the Drama Club performed their show. Through these last weeks many classes will be going on various educational trips, and they even get a day off so that the faculty and staff can take the time to pray and reflect on our ministry in Catholic Education.
In June, we will graduate 54 Four Year Old Preschool students and help them to “sail” into Kindergarten. We will also celebrate as 35 Kindergarten students make there way to First Grade. And finally, on June 5th, we will graduate 32 young men and women from our Eighth Grade, the St. Mary School Class of 2019, as they move on into high school.
A special prayer for the Class of 2019, asking the Lord to help and guide them as they move out into the world, hopefully always remembering to:
