Please see our most recent Parents’ Association update below.
No matter how you gathered together with your family and loved ones this year, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The PA feels especially grateful for our parents and families at our school, as well as our entire team of administrators, teachers, staff, and church leaders at St. Mary. We are #blessed!
Giving Tuesday, December 1st , is a great time to consider a contribution to the Annual Fund, which helps us reach our annual fund-raising goal. Please see the helpful information attached in response to great questions about the different ways to contribute to our goal. Please reach out to PA or Mary Catherine Nelson with any questions. Thank you for your consideration!
Looking for an easy weeknight meal? Chick-Fil-A has got you covered! Wednesday, December 2nd pick up dinner at the Vernon Hills location between 5PM & 7PM and mention St. Mary. A portion of sales will go back to SOSM. Please see the attached flyer for additional information. Special thank you to SOSM parent Gina Lynch for organizing this great opportunity!
Each year, a few SOSM parents generously take it upon themselves to organize a monetary Christmas collection to gift the teachers at Christmastime. Recently, a letter was sent to each home sharing information of ways you may participate. If you wish to contribute and or have any questions, please reach out to Kelly Graham at and Liza Jessen at Thank you!
