Parent Involvement: St. Mary School welcomes and encourages parent involvement. Parents are required to volunteer 50 hours per year for a two-parent family, 25 hours for a single parent. Ten percent of those hours are to be spent volunteering for one of several fundraisers held throughout the year. In addition, parents are asked to participate in Scrip and make a deposit of $200 at the beginning of each year.
Uniform: At St. Mary School we believe that student appearance should reflect appropriate Catholic school values. Our students wear a school uniform daily.
