There is a Christmas tree displayed in the front foyer by the office. On this tree, you will find tags of various colors. Feel free to grab a tag off the tree, purchase it, wrap it, and return it with the tag to the school office by December 9th. These items will be delivered to families that might need a little help through the holidays. Thank you in advance for your support.

7TH GRADE CULTURAL FAIR
This year the 7th graders will host a cultural fair. The students chose a country to research and write a research paper. This is a combined language arts and social studies project. On December 4th we will hold the Cultural Fair in the Parish Hall. Students will dress in clothes that represent their country and have a food dish custom to that country. The Fair begins at 12:30 and will finish at 2:30. Everyone is welcome to come and see what the kids have been working on for the past couple of months.
DOES YOUR CHILD LIKE TO SING?
We are looking for children from grades 4-8 that would be willing to sing for the Christmas Eve mass at 5:15 pm in the choir loft. If your child is interested and you will be attending that mass, please have your child tell Mrs. Corrigan. There will be one practice before we leave for Christmas Break. Thank you for allowing your child to sing for one of the most special times of the church year.

MAX DOLLARS FOR EDUCATION
Great news! St. Mary's School is registered for the Max Dollars for Education Promotion again this year. Last year we were fortunate enough to be one of the few schools that received $5,000. Parishions, SMS Families, and Friends may now go to http://www.mycountymarket.com/save/promotions/max-dollars-education/ to sign up. Spending accumulates from August 1st through December 31st. Let's make this another $5,000 year!
St. Mary's is a special place that continues to grow and adapt to the demands of a world that so desperately needs Christ-centered schools. Our patrons and benefactors have played a vital role in helping us achieve this important mission.
Our recent strategic planning process helped us to establish many goals for improvement in seven key areas that were examined. The establishment of an Annual Fund Drive is one of the goals. Please join in and become a critical part of making the vision of St. Mary's School a reality for the short-term and the next 100 years.
