TalentShow2On Friday, February 2nd, St. Mary's Home and School Association hosted the 5th Annual Catholic Schools Week Talent Show as the culmination of our Catholic Schools Week celebrations. There were 22 amazing acts and the emcees and stage crew were our very own middle school students. Each year a charity is chosen to recognize. This year the charity was the Nebraska Humane Society. Our free will offering that night raised over $450 for this worthy cause. Thank you all for your tremendous support.

Gospel of Joy1

St. Mary's students have always centered our Catholic Schools Week activities with service. How can we serve others as Jesus did?

Gospel of Joy2Miss Jankovich's 4th Graders combined their faith and creative writing skills to create a Gospel of Joy poster. Inspired by learning about the Columban Fathers' Missions through Mrs. Menzel and her 5th grade class, we used an idea from Father Chris Saenz, a Columban and St. Mary’s alumnus, about bringing the Gospel of Joy to the world.

4th Graders created these posters to inspire others to go out and spread joy, JESUS' JOY, throughout the world.

Thanksgiving2

 Students enjoy Thanksgiving celebrations with their school buddies. At St. Mary's older grades and younger grades are paired up with "buddies." Then throughout the year, the buddies participate in a variety of activities. For example, buddies sit together at Mass so the older students can assist with crossing the street and model good behavior at Mass. If there's a class project in the younger grades where more assistance is needed sometimes the older buddies will visit (ex. a project to make homemade apple sauce). In these pictures, the activity was some fellowship and fun in celebration of Thanksgiving.

Over the Veterans day holiday weekend the St. Mary's Witsclash team traveled to Bryan High School to compete in the largest quiz bowl in Nebraska. Any sixth, seventh, or eighth grader can join the Witsclash team. At the Bryan tournament we did very well, with one of our teams seeded fourth in the bracket of over thirty teams. While we didn't win any trophies, it was a really fun experience for all of the teams.
