Our mission as St. Mary’s PTO is to promote and encourage communication among parents, teachers, administration and community. We strive to provide opportunities for all families to become involved. Our goal is to keep families informed and encourage them to be a vital part of their children’s education. The PTO also sponsors and organizes many school events, which enrich our students’ experience and bring our school community together. You can email the PTO using the Contact Form Below.

Our current PTO officers are:

We are still looking for someone to take over the Treasurer position for Evangelina at the end of the school year. If you would like to be involved please contact us anytime!

The PTO meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm. We invite everyone to join us and look forward to hearing your suggestions, input and feedback.

We were able to accomplish many wonderful things for the school last year thanks to your outstanding fundraising efforts. The PTO sponsors many great annual events:

  • Thanksgiving Dinner
  • Wreath Decorating
  • Children’s Christmas Shopping Bazaar
  • Catholic Schools Week
  • Family Dine-Out Night
  • Walk-A-Thon
  • Teacher Appreciation Week
  • Field Day
  • Uniform Swap Shop
  • Enrichment Programs
  • Authorfest

We are especially excited to share the extra we were able to do during the 2015/1016 school year:

  • New and improved Literacy Room. This is stocked to the brim with teacher requests – whole classes are now able to read together! The teachers and students have been using it regularly!
  • Painted the hardtop with new games and the USA map – in COLOR!
  • Enhanced the playground with new mulch
  • Many enrichment programs
    • MOS Star Lab
    • Custom Authorfest

In past years we have been able to build a new and fully stocked Science Closet, brought in the New England Aquarium’s Penguin Program, a Kamishaibai Performance, “Be Awesome” engineering and technology behind adaptive sports, and much more!

This year we have many more projects and presentations in store We will also have more keynote speakers and improvements to the school. We are very excited to share that our Uniform Swap Shop is now open year round! This is an opportunity to make a cash donation for gently used uniforms that are donated by families and/or donate some yourself! You can email the PTO using the Contact Form Below.

Thank you,
Your PTO
