Due to the unique size of our school, our youngest learners are exposed to a wide range of whole school activities, including pep rallies, weekly mass, school plays, and other activities.

It is important for our prospective and current parents to know that we do offer an after-school option. Our After School Academy (ASA), however, it is not available for our Preschool students at this time.

Preschool Teacher: Mrs. Sims

At St. Mary Cathedral School, we know and understand that being a parent for a Preschool student can leave you with lots of questions. That is ok, we are here to help:

Parent Ambassadors: Every class has at least one parent ambassador. This can be a great resource for parents to learn more about our school, participate in classroom activities, or get to know some of your fellow elementary parents!

School can be as much about what the parents put into learning as the students. Some of the significant events/programs sponsored by the ambassadors are: Field Day, Campbell Soup Label Collection, Spartan U.P.C. Labels, General Mills Box Tops for Education, Gordon Food Service Fun FUNDs, SCRIP Program, and welcoming new families.

Office Staff: Our office is open for business Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. You may always drop by with questions, comments, or concerns. We are here to help!

Mrs. Hatch: Mrs. Hatch is our school principal and works daily to guide our school and students. She is a teacher and administrator and can be a great resource. Please feel free to contact her directly to schedule a meeting or conference.

Weekly Emails: St. Mary Cathedral Parish & School sends out weekly emails to parents. This is a great place to get helpful information on activities and happenings at our school. As a parent, you will be automatically signed up for emails during registration.

ParentWeb and RenWeb: Our online portals for our students and parents.

Note: All of our students participate in our school-wide uniform standards. For details on our uniform requirements please click here.
