Home and School Overview


The Home and School is 100% a parent volunteer organization. "The strength of a school is not found in how many kids show up in class, but in how many parents attend the school's activities!" H&S is a wonderful opportunity for you to volunteer and give back to the school. We hope you will embrace your call to be a part of Home and School to show support for the kids!

The purpose of the Home and School is to support our school's commitment to our mission statement through:

  • fundraising efforts
  • teacher appreciation
  • student programs
  • foster communications between the school and home

Fundraising

We have several fundraisers each year to support our activites.

  • Magazine Sale (November)
  • Walk-A-Thon at Petit Center (January timeframe)
  • Getting Moving Week
  • Box Tops for Education (on-going)
  • Restaurant of the Month
  • Used Uniform Sale
  • Scholastic Book Fair

St. Mary's Bully Defense Program

Home and School sponsors a Bully Defense Program designed and taught by the Chosun Black Belt Academy of Tae Kwon Do. 

Get Moving Week Results

St. Mary's Home & School put the FUN in fundraising with Get Moving Week in April 2019 featuring daily recess activities, a Change Challenge between grades and raised over $9,000! The teachers, staff, students and volunteers had a great time and are already saving coins for next year!

Thank you to Home and School members Vivian Roe, Kelley Legler and playground supervisors who assisted with the daily lunch recess activities and all the parents / teachers and staff that volunteered to get the children moving! 

6th Grade came out on TOP as the 1st place winners for the Change It Up Challenge, becoming the future contenders of the Adults vs Kids Kickball Game in June with 4th and 5K as runners up winning an ice cream social party! All the money raised for the Jump-A-Thon and Change Challenge goes towards Home & School that assists with curriculum funding, social activities for the kids (Bowling, Dances) and more!
