Fall Festival

Please join us for our fall festival on Friday, October 18 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be games, prizes, and fun. We look forward to celebrating fall with you!


Little Flower Girls Club

We will be starting the Little Flower Girls Club for girls in 3rd through 5th grades. This club teaches virtues through scripture, crafts, activities, and service projects. The club will meet once a month on Wednesdays from 3:20 to 4:00 p.m. in the 3rd grade classroom. We will have our first meeting on Wednesday, October 23. Please pick up students at the front entrance at 4:00 p.m. Please visit the Orgs Online website to register your daughter.


Tuition Assistance Applications

The window for families to apply for tuition assistance for the 2020–2021 school year begins on October 1 and ends on December 6. The process requires that you submit tax documents and other forms. 

We strongly encourage every single St. Mary’s family apply for tuition assistance. There are two tuition assistance funds, one from the Archdiocese of Washington and one from St. Mary’s Parish. The amount of money that the Archdiocese of Washington distributes is partially determined by the number of tuition assistance applications they receive from our families. The more applications the Archdiocese of Washington receives, the more assistance we will be able to provide to all of our students. Even if you do not think your family qualifies for assistance, please apply anyway.

In addition to the money from the Archdiocese, we also have assistance available from St. Mary’s Parish. You must apply for tuition assistance from the Archdiocese of Washington in order to receive assistance from St. Mary’s Parish. The admissions team will be very strict about this policy for the 2020–2021 school year. You will receive several notices between now and December 6. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.


Join the School Band

All students in 4th through 8th grades are eligible to join the school band! Miss Suuberg, our band teacher, can teach students how to play several instruments including the flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone horn, drums, and more. If your student has an interest in learning how to play an instrument, please visit the Archdiocesan Music Program website for more information.
