School registration for the 2018-2019 school year is now open. We are asking all families to help us predict our enrollment numbers for next school year by returning registration and tuition agreement forms in a timely manner. Please return your tuition agreement form, and registration form & fee to the school office by Friday, April 13, 2018. If you feel that you will need tuition assistance next school year, we ask that you contact the school office prior to May 9th. We can make arrangements to help those in need, and this is kept confidential.

St. Mary’s has an awesome fundraiser in selling gift cards, we will earn a percentage from the retailers for every card that we sell! Stop by the parish office to purchase some cards to use where you shop. Gift cards make great gifts any time of the year and can also be used for your everyday purchases like gas and groceries!
We offer a large variety of cards including: Quillin’s, Kwik Trip, Woodman’s, Festival Foods, Menard’s, Wal-Mart, Target, JcPenney, Amazon.com and many, many more!
The order form and list of cards that we normally have on hand can be found here.
Here’s how it works: We purchases gift cards from national retailers and local businesses at discounts ranging anywhere from 2 – 20%. The gift cards are then sold to you at face value. Our “profit” is realized upon the sale of these cards. For example, we purchases one $10 gift card at a 5% discount. You pay $10 for the $10 gift card, and the retailer gives us 5% which goes to the school AND part of the rebate gives a tuition credit to the student/family of your choice!
Thank you to everyone for helping with this incredible fundraiser!
