Maureen Siecicki, St. Mary's School Parent & Grandparent - written in 2014

How could I forget the summer of 1988 as Paul and I, with our three teenagers, left Chicago for a new life in Omaha! God had answered our prayers for a new job opportunity for Paul. Now we prayed that our children would find their way in their new schools.

Alan was quickly enrolled as an 8th grader at St. Mary's in Bellevue and joined the cross country team. It did not take long for me to see that he felt he was part of his class. He was warmly welcomed by Miss Moore and her students, giving Alan a positive 8th grade experience at St Mary's. He even received a Special Student Award at the end of the year and a Knights of Columbus scholarship as he continued on to Gross High. I credit St. Mary's welcoming spirit and attention to the individual student for Alan's self confidence.

Alan and Melissa's children now attend St. Mary's. I already see our grandsons receiving individual attention in math and reading giving them room to grow and flourish. It is so gratifying to see the many opportunities St. Mary's provides for the students to share their talents and Christian values with others. 

St Mary's Information

St. Mary's Catholic School is a Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade School of the Archdiocese of Omaha. Our mission is to provide a Catholic education that nurtures students' hearts and minds to become servant leaders in an ever-changing world.

Our philosophy of education is to offer a five-day program to assist families in teaching those truths, skills, and ideals, which are necessary for Christian living. We believe that education must develop the faculties and abilities of the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. To help achieve this, our faculty and staff are an integral part of the formation of Christian community and dedicate themselves to the task of developing Christian citizens.
