Coats for Our Friends in Need

Getting pretty cold out there? Imagine for a moment being hungry and homeless in this cold. We know how busy this time of year, but please consider taking a few minutes of family time and help your child learn more about sharing and loving others during the Christmas Season. It would be wonderful if you could help your child find one used warm jacket or sweater to bring to school for someone less fortunate.

Every day, St. Mary’s Church has families come to them for food and emergency clothing…not just men, but women and children as well. We will deliver your donations of warm outerwear to the Parish Office every day. You may make the difference in someone’s life today.

Thank you so much for caring – may God bless us all!

Christmas Break: Dec.19-Dec.30

The preschool will be closed Monday, December 19 through Friday, December 30. We will be back on Monday, January 2.

Tuition for the month of December will be the normal amount.

The teachers and staff would like to wish you a very safe and blessed Christmas and thank you for this gift of vacation with your families. Bless your hearts!

Fall Evaluations

A brief look at your children’s first months of school will be coming home at the end of the month. This will just be a quick description of their favorite things to do at school so far, and how they are adjusting to their classroom surroundings. All school conferences will be scheduled in May, but teacher meetings are available at any time. Your child’s teacher is always just a phone call away!

October is Silver Pumpkin Month!


St. Mary, Star of the Sea School invites you to help raise money by turning in quarters, nickels or dimes during the month of October! Take a close look around your home…in the laundry, between seat cushions, just about anywhere.

*Please do not bring in pennies or dollar bills; remember this is silver pumpkin*

Coins are to be turned in to your teacher. Our school is raising money to benefit the Garden of Joy. Thank you as always for helping to support our school!
