WOW...we are in the middle of our Catholic School Week events. I want to just take a moment to thank everyone for making this week so special for our students. There is much planning that takes place behind the scenes to make all these events possible. Teachers, staff, parents, grandparents, and Home and School all work extremely hard to make each event special. I hope your family is enjoying this week as much as me.
I am also encouraging everyone to become familiar with our School Choice program. Our school will be part of this awesome program where students have the possiblity to join our school community for FREE. This program is based on income eligibility. I would encourage all current families in 3K, 4K, and 5K to apply. Any public or homeschool student in any grade is welcome to apply. If you qualify, the student would attend St. Mary School for free for the remainder of the elementary school levels. In exchange, we would receive over $7,000.00 per pupil/per year who qualify. Our school window to apply starts NOW till April 20, 2017. Please apply using the link here. http://dpi.wi.gov/sms/choice-programs If you have any questions, please call the school office at 920.845.2224.

Next school year we are looking for current families to adopt a new family to St. Mary School. We are trying to create this new partnership to help the new families adjust to St. Mary School. This mentor program would allow new families to ask questions and get questions answered from these families who know the ins and outs of your community. We want to create better communication to these families. If you are interested in becoming a mentor family, please let me know. I would like to to have about ten mentor families in place for next year.
