STREAM FOCUS:

Religion/Service From Mr. Smith: On Tuesday, November 19th, we delivered 1,060 lbs of non-perishable food items to Pernet Family House. Students in grade 11 helped with delivery and sorting. It is such a blessing to serve others in this way!

From Mrs. Colorio: On Wednesday, November 20th, we sent 135 bags, with a total weight of 2,844 lbs, to Savers for the HSA fundraiser. At 25 cents per pound, we raised $711.00. Thank you for your generous contributions!

From Grade 12: Great news! We surpassed our goal for No Shave November. We have raised $285.00 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Here are some facts to raise your awareness about cancer: 1) Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in both men and women. And it’s the second leading cause of death among men and women combined. 2) Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. It accounts for nearly 1 in 4 deaths. (Heart disease is the number one.) 3) Over 2 million skin cancers are diagnosed every year—many of those could be prevented by taking necessary precautions. (i.e. protecting skin from excessive sun exposure and avoiding indoor tanning.) We are still accepting donations for No Shave November. If you’d like to give, please send funds to St. Mary’s Schools. Thank you for your consideration. God bless! ~ STM Class of 2020
