Welcome to St. Mary’s School. We are proud to offer families
the opportunity to send their children to a school rich in
academic success but more importantly, to a school, which is
Christ-centered. At St. Mary’s School we have a strong
partnership between parents, school, and church. Our students
have the opportunity to experience their faith on a daily basis.
ST. MARY’S SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT
St. Mary’s School, in partnership with the
family and church, provides a Christ-centered
education in the Catholic tradition. We are
committed to nurturing the Development of
self-discipline in each child, so they will
full potential; spiritually, academically,
socially, and physically.
Closings & Delays of School & Daycare:
Because our students ride the public busses, we follow the
Greensburg Community School closings and delays for snow, fog,
ice and emergencies, Be sure to listen to WTRE AM 1330, or watch
Channel 8 WISH TV or Channel 13 WTHR. If Greensburg schools are
closed or delayed, St. Mary's school will also be closed or
delayed, regardless of whether or not we are specifically
mentioned. Since Daycare runs on a different schedule as the
school, it is important that you call and check their schedule.
If you signed up for "One Call" you will be notified.
Updates and Reminders…
Please check your child(ren)’s Friday folder this week for an
updated school calendar. Due to the number of snow days, we have
not only had to add days to the end of the year, we have also
adjusted the last 2 grading periods.
Science Fair Registration forms are due on March 14th.
Please turn these in as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
There will be 2 out of uniform days in March. Our first day will
be a pajama day to celebrate reaching one of our goals in the “I
Love to Read” challenge. March 14th will be our
pajama day. Since March 27th is the day scheduled for
spring pictures, that day will also be an out of uniform day. (Unlike
most months, WE WILL NOT have an out of uniform day the first
