I hope you are enjoying this warm summer in West Michigan. School will be starting soon with the first day on Monday, August 27th. If you are interested in sending your child(ren) to St. Mary’s Catholic School now or in the near future, please contact our school office for information on registration or you can check out our website at: www.stmarysl.org. I would love to give you a tour of our beautiful new school and share with you all the wonderful learning that takes place at St. Mary’s School on a daily basis. We have our Open House scheduled for Tuesday, August 21st, 5:00-6:30 PM. Registration for the 2018-19 school year is ongoing until they fill up. Our 3 and 4-year-old preschool is full and has a waiting list. We do have room in our Kindergarten Prep classroom which is held five days a week in the afternoon. We still have openings in all other grades K-8.
If your family is considering a Catholic school education, the Welcome Scholarship is being offered again this year for students going into preschool through 8th grade that haven’t attended a Catholic school in the Diocese of Grand Rapids. Each new student who meets this scholarship criterion is eligible for $250 for preschool and $750 for K-8 grades for the first year you are enrolled. Bishop Walkowiak has scholarship money available from the Diocese of Grand Rapids, in addition to St. Mary’s scholarship money from our annual Unity Auction and golf outings. To be eligible for these scholarships, you need to complete the SmartAid Scholarship Application at: smartaidforparents.com.
