Dear Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of the faculty and staff of St. Mary's Catholic School I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful summer. Thank you for all your support throughout the school year, especially during those uncertain times. We did it! 

This Thursday we will celebrate our annual Color Games. We need volunteers to help with games and to help BBQ hotdogs and hamburgers. If you are EIM certified, and would like to help, please email Mrs. Cayce  

Color games will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Come celebrate with us. Please make sure your child is wearing sunscreen and brings a water bottle. We will be outside for some games. 

Our summer school office hours will be a little different from the regular school year so plan accordingly if you wish to stop by. 
June 23rd-June 27th: 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
May 30th: Office will be closed for Memorial Day

Employment Opportunities 
Falcon Care Friday
Falcon Care will be open on Friday from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Please email Mrs. Cayce at if you will be utilizing Falcon Care. Lunch will be provided by Falcon Care so please reserve your spot.  

Medication Pick Up Information
If your student has medication in the Health Office, please pick up the medication before the end of the day Friday (noon dismissal). Medications cannot be kept over the summer, per Diocese policy. Medication also cannot be released to the student; a parent/guardian must pick up medications. Any medications not picked up by June 3rd will be disposed of according to Diocese policy. Thank you.

Volunteers Needed - Sports 
As the year ends, I will be looking for coaches for next year's sports. The sports that I will be looking for are girls volleyball and girls and boys basketball. This is all voluntary and an easy way to get your volunteer hours.  Practice is usually right after school till 5:15, games are usually on Monday and Thursday, could have a Tuesday night game occasionally.

All coaches must be EIM certified. I am here at school during practice and at all games.
If you are interested in coaching just email me and let me know.
Thank you.

Lost and Found Cart
The lost and found cart is overflowing with uniform items and winter coats. Please take time to stop by and claim what you might be missing :) All left over items will be given to St. Vincent DePaul and/or be sold at the used uniform sale in July.

Yearbooks are HERE! 
Yearbooks are here!  Kinder through 7th will receive their yearbooks on the 19th.
If you would like to purchase a yearbook, if you did not preorder, I only have 8 copies left so don't delay.  Yearbooks are $40.00. 

Video Shoot Update
As many of you know, for the past few months we have been filming a marketing video to attract new families to our amazing school. This past week, filming concluded and there are so many people to thank. Thank you to Mrs. Henderson, mom of Sydney in Kindergarten, for directing and producing the video. Her talents were pivotal in the success of this video. Thank you to Sign Gypsies for arranging the beautiful display used in the opening scene of the video. Finally, thank you to our outstanding teachers and students for their dedication to making this video great. We cannot wait to share the final video with the rest of the SMCS community!
