Bring in your pumpkins the morning of the 23rd through the morning of the 28th. Bring your extra coins to vote for your favorite pumpkin. The money raised will be donated to our school’s Holt child. SCRIP prizes will be awarded to the top five pumpkins. Have fun decorating!
The 8th grade class will again be sponsoring the Halloween Carnival for the school. This year Halloween celebrations will take place on Friday, October 27th, not Tuesday, October 31st. Please click on link to see class times.
Halloween Costume Guidelines
On Friday, October 27th, students are to come to school in their uniforms. They may bring their Halloween costumes to change into for the Halloween carnival. Please do not send costumes and outfits that:
- Have masks that conceal the entire head or face
- Dye your children’s hair
- Include make-up or face paint
- Are overly grotesque or violent characters, or that go against our Christian beliefs
FYI: The guidelines are in place to:
- Limit the amount of time spent getting into costume (i.e. we don’t want kids spending 20 minutes in the bathroom putting on face paint for 40 minutes at the carnival). So please send a costume that your child can change into in a minimal amount of time.
- Maintain a safe environment (i.e. Staff can still identify the children).
- Stay within our school’s mission and philosophy.

St. Mary Halloween
Join us October 31st, 5-6:30 pm for a safe and dry trick-or-treating event! Classroom doors will be decorated and little ones will be able to go door-to-door rain or shine. We ask that if you plan to participate, you donate one bag of candy to the front office for your family. This will help us to keep costs down and allow for everyone to go home with plenty of treats. This event will be open to the public so please, spread the word and invite your friends!
2018 Auction Committee is gearing up for another great year!
Being a part of the auction committee is fun, exciting and a great way to get involved with families and our community. Plus earn share hours!
We are looking for 3 outgoing volunteers who would like to be part of our procurement team. This entails reaching out to a list of families and businesses for targeted items for donation.
Please email your auction chairs Steffanie Piccirilli and Deanne Hayes at email@example.com if you are interested.

Due to high demand, we will be offering early admissions for Pre-K and Kindergarten for the 2018-2019 school year. Early admissions is open as of now and will close November 1st. Any remaining openings will be available during our spring open enrollment. If you have a student currently enrolled in Pre-K, please do not use the online form. A much shorter form will come home with your child!
We are excited to be able to offer a new part-time Pre-K option next year! Parents will now be able to register their child for a 2 or 3 morning option (8-11:30 am) in addition to our regular 5 day program. For more information, please visit our enrollment page at www.stmarystayton.org/admissions and apply online!

Drop Off Reminder
Please remember to use the northbound lane to drop off students not the south bound side of the street.
For your child’s safety, please use the drop off line to let your children off on the sidewalk, not in the middle of the street.
Please also remember that you do not need to wait until you are at the beginning of the drop off line to drop off your child. Your child can exit your car on the northbound school side anywhere within that drop off zone. this will help to keep the line moving more smoothly and quickly. Thank you.
