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.

Below, you will find more information and links to help YOU, as a Pirate Parent, to jump in and be more involved in our Pirate family.


The PPC would like to recognize our amazing students and congratulate them on a great year. We will be providing breakfast in the COVE for finals FREE of charge before finals next week. We will start serving at 7:30 and finish at first bell.

  • Tuesday (5/21) Pancakes and sausage

  • Wednesday (5/22) Yogurt Parfaits and muffins

  • Thursday (5/23) Eggs with biscuits and gravy
