We are excited about our SMS Tiger-thon fundraiser. Our goal this year remains $25,000 as we hope to improve technology within the classroom. Last year was successful and my teachers were grateful that we added 25 iPads. Here is a picture of the Spheros that we were able to purchase.
The students love programming these guys on the iPad to move through mazes and STEM activities. We could still use more technology, our computer lab still has desktop computers, some of which are over 10 years old.
Chocolates & Online Pledges
In years past we sold World’s Finest Chocolate (yummy), but last year we decided to try online pledging via 99Pledges. This year we will combine both efforts. Below is some information specific to the online pledging one can make to our school.
Thank you to our community and school families for your efforts to make our school a success. Funding the mission of a Catholic education is never simple or easy. I am proud of our school and the daily sacrifice made by all to make life-long learners and compassionate leaders.

St. Mary’s Tiger-Thon (99 PLEDGES)
Many of you recognize this as a typical seeking-pledges-to-support-an-educational initiative. The Tiger-Thon begins October 6 and ends on October 16. We anticipate this will be SIMPLE and SUCCESSFUL!
Each family will have a link available from the 99 Pledges page. People can click on the family of their choice and follow the directions to make a donation. This is an ideal option for our patrons that do not live near St. Mary’s School.
