New School Logo
SMS_LogoFINAL.png

We are all very excited to introduce our NEW SCHOOL LOGO! Spurred by recent growth, and in an effort to connect our cherished past with our strong vision and future, St. Mary School thought it was the perfect time to re-introduce ourselves! Our new look holds tight to what we value most, enriching our faith and instilling Christian values, but shows our push forward with new technology, more collaboration, and new teaching styles and tools! With the loyal support of our parish, we are strong, solid, and here to stay, bringing more innovation to our 58 year history than ever before.

Our new look is founded in our faith, with the rosary as a focal point in honor of our devotion to our Patroness Mary. Mary is also honored in the crown. The intertwined letters symbolize our connection with each other through Christ, and our school’s close relationship in working with our families, parish, and community.

A big SMS thank you to Carolyn Forero-Eyler and SFA Marketing for doing a beautiful job - we are grateful for your effort and generosity!

Hartford Archbishop Leonard P. Blair and Superintendent of Catholic Schools Dr. Michael Griffin saluted 98 volunteers from 36 Catholic elementary schools at the 41st annual HOPES (Help Our Parish Elementary Schools) Dinner on Tuesday, September 25th. Each volunteer received a St. John Neumann Award for their unwavering commitment to their schools. St. Mary School is proud to recognize Mr. Tracy Hart & Mr. Dennis Riordan as this year's worthy recipients.  Dennis and his wife, Maureen, are the parents of two SMS alumni. While a parent at the school, Dennis served as a basketball coach and, later, as chair of the Annual St. Mary School Basketball Tournament for which he remains a co-chair to this day even though his children have long since graduated. Thanks to him and many others, this event raises close to $20,000 annually for the school, not to mention the school spirit it raises.   Tracy and his wife, Linda, are also the parents of two SMS alumni. During their time at the school, they were active parent volunteers in many capacities, with Tracy being a big promoter of the basketball program. He was an assistant coach for his son, and head coach for his daughter’s team. We thank Tracey, Dennis and their wives for their dedication to all the children of St. Mary School.
