Principal’s Message


At St. Mary Parish School we work tirelessly to instill Christ’s message of love and compassion. Our school program is built on the foundation of the Catholic faith where we demonstrate Christ-like virtues through all our thoughts, words, and actions. 

As parents, you are the primary educators of your child. You provide the background from which each child comes to learn and grow with us. We embrace that each child is a precious and awesome responsibility and strive WITH YOU to enrich them with gospel values, foster talents, and cultivate necessary skills to develop and flourish in life. 

In our family-like atmosphere and upholding our high standards, the staff will work with you throughout the school year on matters concerning your child's education and personal development. The school office is here for you if you ever need help, have questions, or develop concerns. And I will personally continue to go above and beyond to make sure St. Mary Parish School is the right place for your family. 

I am grateful for the support of our parents and parishioners. We encourage your active involvement in the school and your full participation in the life of the parish. With you, we hope and pray that all the dreams you have for your children may come true. May God abundantly bless you and your family!

Pace e Bene,

Dr. Mark T. Joerres


Admissions Information

St. Mary Parish School respects the dignity of every child; therefore, neither race, color, religion, nor nationality will prevent a child from being accepted into the parish school.

In-House Registration

In early December of each year, families of current St. Mary students will receive a survey to complete indicating if your child(ren) will return for the next school year. In addition, any new student you wish to enroll should be submitted through the survey as well. Once we receive notification of a new student from a current family, the office will send out a registration form. New registrations will be accepted in the order in which they are received until the recommended class size of 25 has been met. Up to 5 additional registrants per class will be placed on a waiting list.
