Congratulations to an Alumna Who's Living Her Dream!

ErinMcMasterErin McMaster, St. Mary's class of ‘10, made the 2019-2020 Orlando Sea Wolves Dance Team! Her mom had hoped one day to coach her in soccer to be an amazing player, but Erin had a different dream. Her mom, Kathy says, “I’m so proud of you for hanging in there and not giving up on your dream. If you weren’t going to be a soccer player then what better than to be a team dancer for a professional arena soccer team!” Erin also gets to share her dream with one of her best friends, Kalyn, who also made the team. 2019 2020OrlandoSeaWolvesDanceTeamCongratulations Erin on becoming an Orlando Sea Wolves Dancer!

Ice Cream Social - A Social Event

IceCreamSocial1We will be having an Ice Cream Social to kick off the new school year, but there will be a few minor differences from years past due to school renovations. The Ice Cream Social will be held Monday, August 12th from 6:00-7:00 PM in the parish center. This will be strictly a social event to greet our friends and make new friends. Please do not bring school supplies. The start date for school has been delayed until Monday, August 19th. It will be a full day of school with a hot lunch and before and after school care will be available. This small adjustment will not impact the rest of the school calendar. School renovations are moving right along and soon we will be needing your help to move furniture and materials back from their summer homes to be ready for the schoolchildren. There will be many opportunities for double service hours, moving furniture, carrying boxes and setting up classrooms. An email blast will be sent out once the moving dates are firmed up. Thank you for your prayers and understanding as we get ready to start our new school year!

Peter Pan Comes Alive Through Music

PeterPan1This year, St. Mary’s middle school presented the play Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure for their spring production. The characters that we know and love came to life with this magical production. PeterPan2First to enjoy the musical were the younger grade students and some very special invited guests from Mable Rose. The audience was rapt with attention and enjoyed every minute of it. Later that evening, the performers presented their final show.

Peg Kallman, St. Mary's music and drama teacher said, “It was their best, and finest, performance and all who came were very entertained, and pleased, with the kids' ability to sing and act out their roles so well. Thanks to all who came to see the hard work that went into producing this show! We look forward to bringing you another quality production next Spring!!”

This is his first show at the Lofte Community Theatre and his first ever community theatre production in Nebraska. The show runs through August 4th.

He participated in summer shows at Mills Masquers in Glenwood, Iowa, three consecutive All State Musicals and this year as a Gross alumnus volunteered with the Addam’s Family, another All State Musical. Jacob is studying Music Education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.




A Dinosaur Parade

Dinosaur1In May, the Pre-K students studied dinosaurs and the wonder of the dinosaur world before extinction. The children learned about both meat-eating and plant-eating dinosaurs and studied how the dinosaurs protected and defended themselves with their large and powerful bodies. Each child created their own dinosaur costume which they wore in the Pre-K Dinosaur Parade. Dinosaur12The children did a marvelous job creating the camouflaged skin of their dinosaur, as well as the mighty, strong tails and ferocious jaws that made each dinosaur unique. The Pre-K children paraded through all the classrooms singing their special songs, including the "Dino Pokey" during which they chomped their teeth, scratched their claws, and wagged their mighty tails for all the classroom children and parents in attendance.

Pioneer for a Day

PioneerDay1Fourth graders learn about the pioneers in class, but for one day they get to actually dress up and become one. On Pioneer Day, they get to see what it was like to live in a different time, perhaps like their ancestors. The students churned and shook whipped cream in jars to make butter for homemade corn bread and honey, which Mrs. Kelly made and brought in. They played the pioneer version of Duck-Duck-Goose, and participated in a Pioneer Relay Race. In the race two teams compete by doing different chores, like hammering a nail in a fence post [wood on floor], pick up eggs, plant seeds, mix batter, wash clothes, cut sod [out in hall with a wooden sod cutter, made without blades!], and churn butter in a butter churn.

After quite the workout it was time for lunch. PioneerDay22Students washed their hands the old-fashioned way with a basin of water and homemade soap. There was no cafeteria food. They each brought homemade food without plastic wrapping and drank juice from antique tin cups. For recess, they used old pioneer toys such as a jigsaw rope, ball and cup toys, and a Jacob's ladder. The toys had a new complexity they hadn’t experienced before. They also had the opportunity to test their skills at soap carving and a little pioneer math. It sure is fun to go back in time and experience a different way of life. It also makes you appreciate what we have today.

Kindergartners Get the Crowd Involved

KMusical21Before school ended this year, the Kindergarten class performed for an audience of their family, invited guests, as well as the rest of the classes in the school gym. KMusical10The program included songs with movement and dance which covered things from how children get to school, to a well-loved song that everyone in the first grade, and up, has had the chance to perform. The kindergartners especially loved ending the program with "The Moose Song" and seeing all their buddies, and family members, acting silly, singing together and loving the show. They really knew how to get the crowd involved. For more photos click here.

Take a Look Back at the Wonders of Spring

Spring1The Pre-K classroom was a very busy group this spring. They studied the many changes in nature that the spring season brings to their world. They learned about the life cycle of plants and studied how stems feed the plants. After many experiments and observation, they planted and grew their own sunflower plants to take home to their own gardens.Spring2 The Plant unit came to an end and the class celebrated the wonders of spring, as they created and retold the wonderful story about how God recreates the world each year as the plants are reborn in gardens. The children portrayed characters found in nature to tell the Spring Program story of the wonders of life all around us. They had their families and the rest of the St. Mary's students watching. They did a wonderful job singing and retelling their story. For more photos click here.

Senior Walk - Coming Back to Say Thanks

SeniorWalk26Fourteen graduating seniors from Gross High School, Bellevue East, Bellevue West and Mercy High School came back to visit their elementary school and teachers at St. Mary’s before graduating in May. SeniorWalk23Most of them in cap and gown visited with former teachers who taught them in Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Eighth grades and Music. As they talked to those teachers’ memories of certain activities came flowing back: like butterflies in first grade, cursive writing in second, and math bubbles in third. A few current fourth graders quizzed the soon to be high school graduates on states and capitals! Their fourth-grade teacher now retired, just happened to be at St. Mary's volunteering in the lunch room and joined them on their tour of the school. The graduates came back to thank their teachers for helping them get to where they are today, ready to graduate and move forward with their lives, one of them going into the Army and the others attending college in the fall. Ellie Foral, wanted to visit the playground so she and her classmates did just that. They reminisced under the shade of the trees as they talked about old times and their visit ended.

A Special Band Performance

SpecialBandPerformance1Each year students who take music lessons take part in a recital to show how they have progressed. The St. Mary’s students who take band lessons at Gross Catholic High School put on a concert at the end of their music year. They, along with students from the other parochial schools who participate in the band program, put on a special performance. SpecialBandPerformance2The students travel to each other’s schools to show faculty, staff and students what band is all about. It’s fun, rewarding and challenging. Each week the Gross High School band director comes to St. Mary’s to give our students lessons. They then go to Gross each week to practice with the other students in the program. The result is literally music to our ears! For more photos click here.


70th Graduating Class

Graduation25St. Mary's School opened its doors September 6, 1948 and had just two graduates in May 1949. This year, St. Mary's 70th year, there were twenty-two graduates and all had some part of the Celebration of the Eucharist. Before Mass began on May 19th, seven eighth graders brought up different symbols that represented their class of 2019 through the years at St. Mary’s. Three of their classmates read what the symbols meant to them. Class graduates read the readings and petitions and brought up the gifts. After Mass, the Graduation ceremony began. Graduation33Dr. Trish Wallinger welcomed the graduates and their families; and thanked the parents for allowing the school to have them. Every year there are two 8th graders who are selected to read their essay about what it meant to be a student at St. Mary's School. This year, Julia Bennett read her essay in which she remembered each of her teachers and grade events, like learning cursive from Mrs. Sobilo in second grade and states and capitals in 4th grade. The other speaker, Mary Engelkamp, came to St. Mary's in the 7th grade. She talked about how wonderful those two years have been, and thanked her fellow classmates for welcoming her and making her feel a part of the class. Then, Miss Sheridan, the eighth-grade teacher, called each student by name to approach the altar as Dr. Wallinger handed Father Del their diplomas for conferral. Afterwards, there was a reception in the parish center amidst some tears, hugs and lots of photos with parents, grandparents, Fr. Del, and classmates! For more photos click here.


Their Parting Gift

ClassGiftOn their last day of school at the honors assembly the eighth graders presented their class gift to the school. In walked the Spartan mascot for St. Mary’s! It can be used at sporting events, Book Fair, assemblies, Field Day, and other opportunities where students and faculty see fit. Miss Sheridan plans to "pull sticks" for which eighth grader wears it. Each student has a stick with their name on it and this is her method for various "jobs". Isabella Nastase was the first to have her stick pulled. The money for the class gift was raised via two school lunches. On days when Bellevue Public is not in school, St. Mary's must figure out a lunch plan. Lunchroom Director Becky Billings allows different classes and clubs to use these lunches to raise money. The Class of 2019 did a sloppy joe lunch and a walking taco lunch, both in the fall. ClassGift3They raised enough money to pay for the mascot, the Class of 2020 shirts they gifted to the seventh graders at the assembly, and an Adopt-A-Student donation. Other gifts have been--St. Francis Statue (2015), St. Mary's School flag (2016), Gaga Ball Pit (2017), and Custom Beverage Coolers (2018). Each of those classes has also supported the Adopt-A-Student program with their leftover funds. This is the first year the class has purchased the class shirts for their successors. Christina Legner, the 8th grade/Alumni liaison worked with the class again to design their "Alumni" shirts. These were gifts from the Alumni Association, distributed at the 8th Grade Banquet on May 17th. This year's shirts were gold with royal blue text. Previous years were Red with White (2014), Blue Tie-dye with Black (2015), Black with Gray (2016), Royal with Gold (2017), and Black with Gold (2018). For more photos click here.

Glow! This is Your Time to Shine!

Banquet45Banquet54The eighth-grade banquet is a time to reflect, pause and contemplate. This quote in the program says it all. "Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go!" Many of these students have been together since Pre-K and now they are leaving the nest, that is St. Mary’s. At the banquet they celebrate each other, their academic successes, special awards, the fun times they’ve shared, read their will for the upcoming class, hear the prophecies for them from the upcoming class and then reality sets in, they receive alumni t-shirts. The class of 2019 became the newest class of alumni. For parents, whose eighth grader is the last to attend St. Mary’s the students gave their Mom a rose. There were a few of those. Remember you will always be part of the St. Mary’s family. Congratulations to the class of 2019. Here are some of the scholarships and honors that were handed out that evening.

Knights of Columbus scholarship awarded to: Harshil Amin and Jason Goetz

Catholic Daughters scholarship awarded to: Seth Roos, Isabelle Nastase and Julia Bennett

Pen Pals Meet

PenPals1The Kindergartners had been writing to their Omaha Pen Pals all year and finally met in May, face-to-face, at Gemini Park for a picnic lunch and a few hours of play. PenPals2Ms. Rowe teaches Kindergarten at Washington Elementary in Omaha, and is the sister of Mrs. Lewis. Mrs. Lewis said, “We don't know why it took us so long to think of's been a wonderful incentive for the children to learn how to put their thoughts down on paper and give meaning to the written word. We wish we had started it long ago!” The children were so excited to finally meet each other. Mrs. Lewis' students presented their Pen Pals with a homemade writer's suitcase, so their friends would have writing supplies at their fingertips all summer long! For more photos click here.

St. Mary’s is STEAM-ing Into the Future!

Innovation Generation Fifty thousand dollars in grants and prizes is awarded to two Grand Prize Winners in the first Stanley Black & Decker and Discovery Education “Innovation Generation Contest.” SchoolflwrsNebraska’s St. Mary’s Catholic Elementary School and New Jersey’s William Davies Middle School each received $25,000 to build State-of-the-Art Stanley Black & Decker Makerspaces in their learning communities. By winning the contest St. Mary’s will have the tools, services and equipment necessary to foster a spirit of learning, ingenuity and growth for our 21st century innovators.

Dr. Trish Wallinger, our school principal says, “Kids and teachers alike at St. Mary’s Elementary School are beyond excited to start STEAM-ing into the future! We are thrilled to be receiving a designated makerspace for our students in grades pre-K through 8 to use for their STEM, STEAM and STREAM activities, and we know that this immersive learning experience will leave a lasting mark on their individual educational journeys. All of our creative juices are flowing, and we can’t wait to put our ideas into motion in this next school year.

First Grade Patriotic Parade

PatrioticSymbol1April and May find the first graders immersed in a research project to learn about their favorite American symbol. They spend time at home with their family discovering important and interesting facts. In the classroom, the children work with their classmates to decide the details of their presentation. PatrioticSymbol7Children in Pre-K through 4th grades lined the parade route (hallway) to watch and listen as each symbol told a little bit about themselves. The American symbols led everyone in singing “You’re A Grand Old Flag” and “This Land is Your Land”. For more photos click here.








A Special Dress for Holy Communion

HolyCommunion19First Holy Communion is a special time! For June Boland it was even more special. She was wearing her mom's First Holy Communion dress which was made by her mom's grandmother. HolyCommunion7Hailey Boland, June’s mother, said, “It was my grandmother who made the dress and veil. June’s great-grandma.” June met her grandmother when she was a baby but she passed away when June was 6 months old. Hailey adds, “My grandma and I were very close and it means everything to be able to share my dress with June and to share the special story behind it.”







First Holy Communion

HolyCommunion1First Holy Communion is the culmination of what our second-grade students have been learning throughout the past year about this special sacrament. They learned about Jesus and now for the first time, Jesus comes to them in a unique way, through the Holy Eucharist. They receive him into their body and soul. HolyCommunion2It is a very personal and beautiful time. The girls wear brides’ dresses and the boys wear suits in honor of this holy and joyous occasion. Thank you Father Del for helping us Taste and See the Goodness of the Lord for the first time. For more photos click here.






Confirmation – Growing in Faith

Confirmation22St. Mary’s students were confirmed by Archbishop Emeritus Elden Curtiss. As Catholics, we are first baptized into the faith and then as we grow in body, so too, do we grow in spirit. This is what Confirmation is all about. The faith that was given us is now confirmed and made strong. Those who are confirmed take responsibility for their faith, sharing their faith and their own spiritual destiny. For example, instead of being given a name and sponsor like at baptism, they now make those choices. Confirmation42Maria Connealy chose her brother Jacob as her sponsor. Jacob is both an alumnus and currently a seminarian with our Archdiocese. Following Mass, the Archbishop and Father Del took photos with the newly confirmed. For more photos click here.



Crowning Mary

MayCrowning1Each year we honor Jesus’ mother, Mary during the May crowning. This year it all began with the eighth graders, many of them soon to be confirmed, processing into the church for Mass with their second-grade buddies who this year received Holy Communion. After Mass, the eighth graders walked in carrying roses while the second graders lined the pews.MayCrowning10 Father Del blessed the crown to be placed on Mary’s head. Julia Bennett and Seth Roos were selected by their peers to crown Mary. Then the eighth graders each presented Mary a rose and put them in a vase. Each of the other classes presented bouquets as well. For more photos click here.
