Are you ready for winter yet? Neither are we, but we are prepared. You can be prepared, too. Sign up to receive St. Mary's school closure notifications by text message. Visit this page to learn how.

Please remember to use your Schnucks eScrip cards. If you don't have one, it's easy to sign up! Just pick one up at Schnucks stores or at the back of church at every Mass. Ask the person working the Scrip table for more information and to get the code needed to sign up.

Musical Season is upon us. This year, the students will be performing Seussical the Musical. You won't want to miss this whimsically delightful show. The musical opens November 21. Please watch your email for rehearsal dates and times.

New Technology for a New School Year

Watch the Calendar

Keep an eye on the calendar. Updates and changes will be made as needed. However, trust your teacher's first.

New School Spirit T-Shirts!

This year, EVERY WEDNESDAY is School Spirit T-Shirt day! Students may wear their school spirit t-shirt every Wednesday.

Students do not need to wear their uniform shirt, but must wear their uniform skirt, jumper, pants, or shorts.

Online Tablet FAQs and Help

Students and parents can get some help with their tablets at our Tablet FAQs page. More information will be added as new questions arise. If you have a question that's not on the FAQs page, you can email Mr. David Morris.

Signup for St. Mary's Text Notifications

Schnucks eScrip

If you have a Schnucks eScrip card, please continue using it. If you don't have a Schnucks eScrip card you should get one. Every time you use your eScrip card the school gets money to help pay for supplies and equipment. To get a Schnucks eScrip card stop by the back of church after any Mass. You can also pick one up at any Schnucks store. Sign up under St. Mary's Church Scrip.

Chargers Window Decals

Show your support for our school teams with the St. Mary's Chargers window decal. Decals look great on the outside of any business, home, or car window. Even tinted windows! Window decals cost $5 each. Proceeds will help the current 7th grade class pay for their 8th grade class trip next year. Click here for the order form.

Please help us raise money by supporting our Fundraisers

St. Mary's raises funds for new equipment, books, and learning instruments through many programs. Check out the fundraisers page for more information.

  • We receive 5% from the Back to School Program at Office Depot anytime a parent or other supporter makes a purchase.
  • Save the Box Tops off of your favorite meals and foods and send them in with your child. St. Mary's gets money for each Box Top we collect.
  • Buy food you normally buy through Market Day. Send orders in with your child and pick up your orders at the school. The school gets a percentage of sales for everything you buy.
  • St. Mary's is looking for volunteers to sell Scrip. When you're out at the store use Scrip to make purchases. Scrip is a dollar for dollar exchange. You give us $20 cash, we give you $20 Scrip for the store of your choice. It doesn' cost you any extra, but the school gets money everytime you use it.
  • e-Scrip is another way to use Scrip. This December St. Mary's parents brought in over $1600 by using their e-Scrip cards, and over $14,000 for the year!
  • Support our 8th grade students by purchasing a Success Card. Success cards cost $5 but give you a whole year of savings at local retailers, restaurants, and services.
