Thanksgiving is a time for celebrating all that we are thankful for throughout the year. At St. Mary School, it is also a time to remember others who are not as fortunate by giving back to those in need. The Junior High Student Council invited all members of the school to donate a non-perishable food item that could help out the St. Vincent De Paul Society during the holiday season. Student Council members challenged the classes to surpass 600 donated items and they exceeded that goal! Principal Mary Petelin generously agreed to be sprayed with silly string if the school reached its goal. During an all school pep rally on the last day before Thanksgiving break, the students gathered to recognize the CYO sports teams and increase school spirit. At the conclusion, representatives from each grade were called up to silly string the principal. Students will leave for break inspired to help others and with a great sense of thankfulness for their own school community!
