St. Mary Catholic School 15th Annual Fund
St. Mary Catholic School (SMCS) is beginning its 145th year as the only provider of a Catholic elementary education in Hagerstown. Just as Father Jones raised funds in 1874 to build the original school and convent, we continue to rely on our community of supporters to help make SMCS what it is today!
As we kick off our 15th Annual Fund Campaign, we are excited about our recent projects. If you haven’t been on campus yet to visit our newly renovated Pangborn Gymnasium, Msgr. Passarelli Dinging Hall, and Sister Corda’s Kitchen, you are missing out. Please call the school office today at 301-733-1184 and we can schedule a private tour. In addition to our physical changes, SMCS is in the middle of an exciting school year. We are wrapping up our pilot year of our middle school Chromebook initiative. Each fifth and sixth grade student has their own Chromebook available for daily use which will move up with them from year to year. Upon graduation, the students own the device. Our school continues its commitment to the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program. Adding to the program, student representatives were selected from the middle school grades to serve as ambassadors for all students.
We are asking you today to also serve as ambassadors for St. Mary Catholic School. Not only will your financial gift support tuition assistance, technology maintenance & support, as well as other enrichment programs, it makes the statement that you support the future of Catholic education in Hagerstown. Please take the time to review the enclosed material and help us in our goal to offer a rich academic education rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ for generations to come.
