Thank you to all who helped make our recent Open House a success. We had a wonderful turnout. Many of our visitors told us that they learned about the Open House through St. Mary’s families and yard signs. Thank you for spreading the word about our awesome school. Thank you also to those who helped us advertise the Open House event with yard signs. If you still have a yard sign, please return it to the school as soon as possible. We need to send them to the printer so they can be updated for the next Open House event
