Auction Donations Needed!

Do your children love their Spanish, art, computer, and music classes? Did you know these are funded, in part, by our fundraising activities? This year, we hope to continue to grow these enriching opportunities for our students through our Online Auction, scheduled for May 23-30. Stop by our Idea Board to pick up item donation and gift basket ideas or drop off donation items. Items can continue to be dropped off in the school office through May 12th. Please remember that your sponsorships, as well as item donations, are tax deductible as they benefit St. Mary’s School.

Parent Teacher Group

Want to help your children have a fantastic year, have an opportunity to share your thoughts with the school, and grow as part of our community? When parents get connected to the school, children – and their moms and dads – all benefit.

Our Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the families and faculty at St. Mary’s, and we invite you to join the team! We are currently looking for next year’s Parent Teacher Group officers; please consider sharing your many talents with us by nominating yourself, or someone you know, for one of the positions by Friday, May 12th. http://stmarystars.com/parents/ptg-nominations/

Not quite ready for an officer position, but still want to get involved? We have SO many fun opportunities to earn your volunteer hours! Our school cannot do the many activities for our children without your help. New opportunities are continually added; whether you have a few moments during the week or an entire weekend to share, there’s a way to get involved that fits into your busy schedule. Sign up today! http://stmarystars.com/parents/volunteer-committees/

Thank you, as always, for your support – we couldn’t do it without you!
St. Mary’s Parent Teacher Group
