Clubs and News


The St. Mary's CROP Club's annual peanut butter drive collected over 2 tons of product that was delivered to Catholic Charities for used in its outreach programs for the poor by a van and two pickup trucks. The generosity of our school community was again evident.


Be who you are and be that well.





















The St. Mary's CROP Club under the guidance of Mrs. Kozina (who was also the driving force behind the faculty service days and with Mr. Brehm organized the first student mission to, Mission Texas), works hard to maintain the garden so as to cultivate vegetables of all types to be given to the needy in our community through Catholic Charities. This is but one of many ways the CROP Club reaches out to the community. Funds from cookie sales and soup sales go to buy sleeping bags for the homeless distributed through St. Mary's Inter-Faith Dining Hall; clothing and food drives and the yearly Peanut Butter drive are all designed to help the poor in our community.












SM STEM Competes in Solar Regatta

Our STEM Regatta Team created and submitted a video earlier in the year in which they wired the solar panels to power an electric motor and built a titling mechanism for the panels in order to maximize the sun's energy. They also wired the boat to fun on an auxilary batter pack and prepared a presentation for the Solar Regatta Judges.
