Grandparents Club Coordinator


St. Mary School Grandparents Club is 250 members strong! We have members from all over the world, including 15 states, 6 countries and representation from 20+ towns from Connecticut, and we look forward to growing even more. This Club is a huge success and we couldn’t be happier to have such enthusiastic, involved and loving grandparents. Our vision has come to fruition as our Grandparents Club shares their time, talent and treasures with our school & students enriching what we hold so dear to us here at St. Mary.

Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.
— Proverbs 17:6

Are you interested in being a part of this “Grandparents Club?” Being a member means you will receive letters every month or so with information on events, Masses, service projects, fundraisers, stories about what the students are doing and updates on what’s happening at school.  In addition we let you know about the many opportunities to get involved and volunteer should you be interested.  You are not obligated to do anything but will enjoy receiving our notes, photos and videos about all the great things going on at our school.

If you’d like to learn more, please email us at and include your name, home address & phone number, email address and the name of your grandchild(ren) attending St. Mary School. Please be sure to put “Grandparents Club” in the subject line. Once you sign up, you will begin to receive monthly notes.

Thank you to many grandmas and grandpas that volunteered last year.  You all have such big heart and smiles and we love having you in school with us!

 Last year’s Sprint & Grandparents Day brought out well over 300 grandparents, parents and special friends to share a day with the students as they raced around the school to raise money for our HSA.  Grandparents enjoyed a day planned just for them!  We spoiled them with refreshments, luncheon, raffles, photos, lots of treats and they got to visit their grandchild’s classroom.  It’s a very popular and beloved event at the school and we are looking forward to next year already!
