St. Mary’s annual student fundraiser
EweDraw supports the school's capital
improvements, student activities and
financial aid. This fundraiser is a way
in which we can generate the revenue
necessary to run these programs without
adding to tuition costs.
This program directly benefits student
programs and students must support it to
make it successful. Money collected is
allocated to the following: Senior,
Junior, Sophomore & Freshman class
funds; Clubs; Student Activities;
Financial Aid; and Special Projects.
Those students who do not participate in
the fundraiser will be assessed the
amount which is the difference between
the amount each student is asked to
produce ($80.00 in ticket sales) and the
amount actually produced by the student.
Example: A student who sells only 20
tickets at $2.00 each produces $40.00
for the fundraiser. This student would
be assessed a one time charge of $40.00.
If tickets or money is not turned in by
the day prior to the drawing, you will
be charged $100. Any charges will be
added to the student’s FACTS account.
Refusal to participate in the EWE Draw
and other fundraisers may result in the
denial of scholarships and financial aid

Aquirra's Interview with USA Today
High School Sports:
Q: How did you get
involved in 3×3 and being part of Team
DeCosta: My coaches
and I were discussing 3X3 Basketball at a point in
time so I was very interested in trying it out and
seeing how it goes. When I found out that USA
Basketball had a 3X3 team for U18, I was immediately
wanting to be a part of it. And when they picked me
I was very excited to see how it goes.
Q. How is 3X3 basketball different?
basketball in general is very fast-paced and more
dependent on defense over regular five-on-five
basketball. I’m more focused on defending my
defender one-on-one and trying to score and beat
people off the dribble and look for the open shot.
Q: Does playing 3X3 help you when
you return to the more traditional five-on-five
DeCosta: It most
definitely helps me when I return to regular
five-on-five basketball because I’ll be quicker both
offensively and defensively. Also, my communication
is improving because of 3X3 basketball so I should
be able to become more of a leader on the court.
Costello led five St. Mary's students, members of Campus
Ministry to a week long camp in Michigan run by the Oblates of
St. Francis de Sales. The week featured time for retreat,
spiritual growth, discernment and offered important information
on how to best serve the St. Mary's High School Community.
