At St. Mary's High School, we recognize the importance of parental involvement in our students' activities. Our parents are an energetic, vibrant part of our family who wholeheartedly support the students, faculty, and staff at St. Mary’s. All of our students benefit from our parents' time, knowledge, and experience. Our students' successes are a testament to the extraordinary talent and commitment of our teachers, staff, parents, and countless others who  support Catholic schools and help St. Mary’s accomplish our mission to be an excellent Catholic high school.


When your student joins our Pirate family, so do you! Parents support St. Mary's by getting involved in our Pirate Parent Crew (PPC). The Pirate Parent Crew, our version of a PTO, meets on the second Tuesday of the month. The meetings begin at 6 pm in the Cove. Please check the school calendar for exact dates and times.

A special thanks to all those who attended the PPC meeting this week. The spirit of community was alive in that room and I thank you for your insights, comments, and volunteering.

We need your help. Please consider volunteering at a sporting event either collecting money at the gate or helping with concessions. It is an easy way to earn money for your team and even easier volunteer hours. Don't worry if you haven't done it before; someone will be there to show you the ropes. Thank you! See sign up below:
