Information for athletes in grades 7 - 12 for the 2015-2015 school year. The Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) has initiated a new digital standard for the pre-participation process, called e-PPE powered by PrivIT (electronic Pre-Participation). The OHSAA e-PPE includes a more comprehensive health history questionnaire that is easy to use, legible, and accessible to help mitigate injury risks related to sports. The system facilitates the management of the PPE process and provides coaches, athletic trainers, and medical personnel the information they need to react quickly to health situations.

Several fun & exciting things will be happening at St. Mary Catholic School this week as we have our "personal" celebration of Catholic Schools Week. Due to several years of weather related cancellations & delays, Bishop Monforton made the decision to celebrate The Diocese of Steubenville Catholic Schools Week celebration in April. ( We would ALL be sorely disappointed if we had snow cancellations in April!!). On Monday our students were treated to an Icee Treat curtesy of our Student Council, Tuesday we celebrate Mass with Bishop Monforton & St. John's along with a treat for students & staff from our Partner in Education, The Original Pizza Place. Wednesday is our Annual Appreciation luncheon for families, parishioners & the Marietta Community, Thursday Staff Appreciation & Friday a Pizza lunch by The Original Pizza Place & skating courtesy of Home & School for Grades 1-8 & a movie/ treat for Montessori, PreK & K on Friday! A Week of Celebrations to recognize our OUTSTANDING students & staff!!!
