The Parents’ Association (PA) is a group of parent volunteers who wish to enhance the school experience for students, families and staff of St. Mary’s Academy. The PA organizes events, programs and extras for the school at large. The events are meant to bring the students, staff and families of St. Mary’s closer together to enhance the “family feeling” we have worked so hard to achieve. The PA also sponsors teacher wish lists to help add to the classroom learning experience. The annual magazine drive and family dues supply the funding for all our events and sponsorships. The PA works to help students experience fun at St. Mary’s Academy and create lasting memories that go “Beyond the Desk.”
We are excited to begin our school year together. Watch for the PA newsletter “Beyond the Desk” for more information, events and volunteer opportunities that our St. Mary’s Academy families can participate in! If you have any questions, feel free to email them at the address below. We also welcome any ideas and/or suggestions you may have for our school.

Family Frolics (Halloween Party) – October
The Family Frolics chairperson and committee creates a Halloween Playground in the school’s gym for an evening of costumes, games,
treats, activities, raffles and music from our favorite DJ for the students, family and staff of St. Mary’s.
Secret Santa Shopping – December
For two days in December the Parents’ Association creates a Holiday Store, where students can purchase inexpensive gifts for family and friends during the school day. Volunteer “elves” wrap the students’ gifts before they are taken home.
Catholic School Week
This is a wonderful week of celebrating the success and good news of Catholic education. We honor our dedicated teachers and revel in the outstanding quality of education for St. Marv’s students. We reflect on our blessings and give thanks to our community. The Parents’ Association sponsors a teacher appreciation luncheon and organize various activities for the students.
Ice Cream Social
The PA provides a Valentines Day Ice Cream social for the whole school.
Students enjoy the social time during school hours with their class.
