SMHS Raises Money for Ukrainian Cause
While what is happening in the Ukraine may be half a world away, it is personally affecting a member of our community, Svitlana Zorya-Benson, our Spanish teacher. On Friday, the St. Mary’s students heard Mrs. Benson speak about the conflict in the Ukraine from a personal perspective. You can watch her talk on our website or YouTube channel. Fundraising efforts began on Thursday. Learn more in the News section of our website.

Helps Us Keep the Bingo Momentum Rolling
A special “shout out” to the 10 families who have volunteered for bingo over the last six weeks. Your participation has boosted the revenue generated from the sessions; you are helping us keep costs at St. Mary’s as low as possible! Lucy Costa ’22 is leading the way as she has many sessions already covered and several more reserved. Volunteering for bingo counts for service hours, so, seniors who are in need of hours before graduation and all other students should be sure to sign-up for sessions at this link. Volunteering at bingo is a lot of fun and easy to do – here’s a short video overview for anyone who has never been. 

Yearbook Senior Recognition Ad Deadline
