Join the Home and School Association

The purpose of the Home and School Association is to bring together the parents and staff of St. Mary’s Schools to build a strong Catholic School Community.  All staff members and families are automatic members of the Association.  We welcome parents, grandparents, family members to become part of our St. Mary’s Family. 

If you are looking for a creative way to volunteer at school, the Home and School Association is a great way to make a difference.  The Home and School Association is a great option for parents who are not able to volunteer during the work day as we have several weekend and evening volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

Our meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. in our school faculty room.  Join this fun organization that works to build relationships between our great families and our wonderful school.  Contact Lisa Prytko or Renata Lech at (508) 753-1170 for more information about the Home and School Association.

Our school has been blessed with many volunteers that have stepped up to help but we need your support to make all the special programs a success.  We sponsor various activities and projects throughout the year to bring families and school staff together to relax, have fun and get to know one another better. 

Some of the activities volunteers have been involved with in the past:

  • Bake sales
  • Library volunteers
  • Parent–Teacher Social
  • Spree Day
  • Thanksgiving Feast
  • Halloween Dance
  • Uniform Closet
  • Scholastic Book Fair
  • Open House
  • Drama Program (stage, costumes, props, music, lights preparation)
  • Field Trips
  • Welcome to School Picnic
  • Catholic School Week
  • Box Tops and other fundraising events
