Hello St. Mary's school parents, As a courtesy reminder, tomorrow (FRIDAY) 11/4 is a half-day for end of the marking period / grading work in the afternoon. Pickup will be at 11am. Have a blessed weekend!
We are excited to announce we will be participating in our nation’s Catholic day of giving in conjunction with #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2022. (Advanced Giving starts at 12:00 AM on November 14, 2022 and runs through 11:59 PM on November 28, 2022.) Your support makes a meaningful difference to our Catholic ministry. This year your donations will go primarily towards a large and unexpected expense we had at the beginning of the school year. In September we had to hire an environmental cleanup company to remove several tons of asbestos from our building, which was potentially harmful to everyone in the building. The cost of this was roughly $30,000, and was not in our budget for this year at all. Any donation of any size will help offset this. At St. Mary's, we are changing the lives of people everyday by sharing the love of Jesus Christ and forming disciples of the Lord. https://marquette.igivecatholic.org/organizations/st-mary-catholic-school-2f81e20d-a7e6-4764-9506-93c6dd786f3e

Mass will be celebrated in the gym on Thursday, October 6, at 2 pm.
Due to construction work at St. Mary's taking place during our regularly scheduled Mass time tomorrow, we will be having Mass in the school gym instead. Parents are welcome to attend, but please notify your teacher if you are intending to pick up your student after Mass.
Sault Sainte Marie Public Schools needs to hire someone for 2.5 hours per day to serve lunch at our school. They don't have many prospects so if anyone is interested or if you know of someone, please pass it along. https://jobs.compassgroupcareers.com/job-invite/1084637/ We will be using MiStar to pay for lunches and Sault Sainte Marie Public Schools doesn't have the program set up yet. They are working on it and you will get an email directly from them to set up your account. Here is the link to what will be served at our school: St. Mary's School Lunch menu Pictures will be taken on Wednesday, September 28. PLEASE be sure to get your photo taken!!! This will also be a FREE Color Day. For those of you that are new, Color Day is a day that uniforms are not required and you pay to participate. In lieu of wearing uniforms your child would wear something that is comparable to uniform attire which is appropriate and tasteful. (No ripped jeans or anything distracting.) ***All orders will be taken after picture day. Students will receive a proof order form and be able to order online*** For the yearbook, any photos that you have taken may be shared with JackieKillips@hotmail.com OR LDewildt@baymills.org.
