Merry Christmas

We have made it through another first part of the 2021-2022 school year! The PTO wants to wish you a joyous, safe, and healthy Christmas and New Year!

  • Please remember to send donations for teachers to the Classroom Parents or through the link provided in Mr. R's emails.

  • IF YOU HAVE ANY EXTRA GIVING LEFT IN YOU, the PTO will also be collecting for Mr. R, Ms. Griffin, Nurse Beckie, and other support staff. They are vital to the smooth running of the school and the overall environment and we want to thank them. You can send money through the Venmo account (Jon Korniak @SmswPTO). A small donation of $5 from each family would go a long way!

A word of thanks for all of your support during the first four months of the school year! The PTO hopes to continue to provide activities and events that further the overall school experience of the students. The last two school years have been tricky and we thank you for the continued patience and support.

Lastly, a special thank you goes out to all of the moms, dads, and family members for your volunteer efforts in every facet of the school. WE CAN NOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU! THANK YOU!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS!
Teacher Christmas Party – We are looking for a volunteer to chair the Teachers Christmas Party on 12/22 at 10:30, following 9:30 AM Mass. Please email the PTO if you are interested in chairing this!
Did you know the PTO fundraisers and events keep the cost of tuition down?
Without you and your support, we would not be successful. It is vital for families to participate whenever and however they can. Please find a list of fundraisers planned for the upcoming year (*with the hope that COVID does not derail our plans) with the name of PTO members that head the program or event. You will see that some names head multiple activities and fundraisers. Please consider helping out! We can always have multiple people running programs and we will never turn away volunteers!
We can always have multiple people running programs and we will never turn away volunteers!

Upcoming Fundraisers:
St. Mary’s Digital Discount Cards
We are raising money for all students and staff at St Mary’s with a Capital Region Digital Discount Card with hundreds of dollars of savings/discounts at over 70 businesses in the region.
Cards can be transferred electronically making a great gift. Discounts are available right on your phone to places such as 16 Handles, Bare Blends, Bellini’s Counter, Buffalo Wild Wings, Funplex, Sievert’s Sports, and many more. 
To add some interest to the discount card fundraiser we will break the families, teachers, and faculty into two teams (Gold and Navy) decided by last names:
  • TEAM GOLD – (Last Name) Adams – Korniak
  • TEAM NAVY – (Last Name) Kramek – Worthington
We will ask each family to sell a minimum of 8 cards. Gold and Navy teams will have opportunities to compete against each other for prizes such as a pizza party, dress-downs, and more!
