Our Mission

Our Mission as a Catholic School is to assist students with growth in all areas of their lives so that each student may be a whole person as he/she contributes to the betterment of society. We hope to do this by offering a caring atmosphere where every student will have the opportunity to learn to the fullest extent of his/her abilities and to live according to the values of Jesus. We hope also to bring life to each other as a parish family through mutual respect and cooperation. These goals can only be accomplished if we all work together toward achieving common goals. Adopted by School Board, May 2015

Parents of students entering the 2017 - 2018 Kindergarten class at St. Mary Cathedral School are invited to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, February 23, at 7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria.  Please let anyone know that may be interested. 
 St. Mary Cathedral School is looking for names and possible contact information for Grade School alumni.  If you can help, please send information to or fill out an information form which can be found in the back of Church, in the school office, on this website under "Forms" or at  Help us by listing names and 8th grade graduating year of yourself, relatives or classmates.  If you have contact information, please list it also (e-mails preferred.)
     The first step in getting a St. Mary Grade School alumni group started is getting lists of names and grouping them into years of 8th grade graduation (or the year they would have graduated 8th grade even if they did not actually graduate.)
     Please help in any way you can.  If your parents or grandparents attended St. Mary School and you know the year of their 8th grade graduation, please pass along the information even if the person is deceased.
     We sincerely appreciate any help you can give.  We will keep you posted on progress as our list grows.
