The Christmas season has just begun, and we've been preparing our hearts for Jesus for several weeks at St. Mary School.
-- The Student Council donated $350 worth of toys to the Decatur County Department of Child Services.
-- The entire school collected canned and boxed goods for the Hot Meals Program and various items for the Cheer Fund.
-- Some 8th grade students helped set up the nativity scene outside the building.
-- The Art Club helped us get in a festive mood by decorating our windows.
-- Many students made cards to send to residents at local nursing homes, and the 1st grade students even visited to sing to them.
-- The 6th graders opened the Dollar Christmas Tree Store for students to buy presents for their families and friends and made over $700 to be donated to The Arbor Day Foundation and the Wounded Warrior Project.
-- The 6th grade also provided daily readings and created a Jesse Tree to help us all reflect on the family ancestors of Jesus.
-- We've all been praying with and for each other through our Advent Angel exchange in our faith families.
-- We celebrated the gift of family at our last mass before break by inviting some alumni to come and help us remember that our school and faith family extends well beyond just those who are here in our building right now.
-- We were graced with a fantastic Christmas performance by the Greensburg High School Show Choir.
-- We sang, smiled, performed, and spent time together, celebrating the miracle of Christ's birth just before heading home to celebrate the holidays with our families at home.
Wow! We've been busy! And, truthfully, this list probably isn't all of it! Now, it's time to relax and rejoice with our extended family-- which includes YOU!-- and wish you a very blessed and merry Christmas from everyone at St. Mary School. ✝️🙏🎄 ... See MoreSee Less

Your Little Hoosiers donated to Wreaths Across America to have wreaths placed at the St.Marys cemetery and a few students even came and volunteered in laying them on Veteran Graves.
Thank you, Texas Roadhouse, for the yummy Roll Party for Mrs. Smith's class, who was the highest seller in our fundraiser. For a minute, we thought it was a visit from the Holiday Armadillo....😉 ... See MoreSee Less
