Falcon News
A weekly newsletter of the current events at
St. Mary’s Catholic School
March 1, 2022 ~Issue 274


Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week we begin Lent. All students will attend Ash Wednesday Mass on Wednesday, March 2nd at 8:15 a.m. Students are to be in Mass uniform.  If you are able to join us please do so. Students will not attend Mass on Thursday. Stations of the Cross will be held during Lent but days and times are still to be determined. 

With Lent comes the Knights of Columbus and KJT Fish Frys. Each year our students, parents, faculty and staff are invited to help and share in the fellowship of these organizations. This Friday is our first chance to be part of this yearly tradition. The sign up sheet for students and parents is in the office. Students in grades 3-8 are encouraged to help from 4:30-7:30 at the Knights of Columbus Hall March 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th, April 1st and April 8th. 

Thank you to all who took the time to complete our survey in last week’s newsletter. If you have not had the opportunity to complete this please do so. Each year we send out a short survey to our families asking for feedback on our strengths and weaknesses. We use this information to not only recognize what we are doing right but also to learn and improve what we bring to our community. Please take a few minutes and complete the survey found at this link CLICK HERE. We would really appreciate your time.

Believe it or not, Walking for Education is right around the corner. This year we have chosen to hold the event earlier so that we do not interfere with the Parish Festival. This is a fun day for our students and an important way for our school to ensure all who wish a Catholic education have the opportunity to have it. Please read the following information: Walking for Education Information
Walking for Education Pledge Sheet Information 

With spring having arrived, I know how much our little ones love to play after school on the front playground. Please ensure that you are keeping an eye on your children at all times. Thank you.

God bless you for all you do for our school.
Mrs. Wyles

Chocolate Raffle 
Thank you to all those who have been participating in our World's Finest Chocolate Fundraiser, but we still have plenty of chocolate left.
For every box of chocolate sold, your name will be entered into a drawing to win one of three holiday themed raffle baskets! 

Themes will include:

  • Mardi Gras Basket
  • Easter Basket
  • Summertime Basket
The first drawing will be for the Mardi Gras Basket on Fat Tuesday, March 1st!
This fundraiser is not mandatory but a great way to help support the school. All proceeds from the sale go to our general operating fund. This is also one of two major fundraisers to help those who received tuition assistance fulfill their obligation of helping refill that fund.
