Opportunities for parents to be involved at St. Mary Catholic School

St. Mary Catholic Elementary School depends on the many parents volunteers to help in the following areas: playground, lunchroom, kitchen help, room parents, selling scripts, chaperone field trips or dances, Home & School functions and projects, teacher aids, school improvements and a variety of other areas. We depend on your generosity in volunteering to make St. Mary Catholic School a success!

The Diocese of Steubenville requires parents complete the Decree on Child Protection before working with the children at St. Mary School.

This Council is comprised of six (6) members elected by the Parish Community.  The term of office is for three (3) years.  In addition to the elected members, the president of the Booster’s Organization and the president of the Home and School Organization are members of the Advisory Council.  The Council is a consultative and advisory board to the principal and Pastor in the areas of policy and guidelines for the school and staff.

This is an Endowment/Trust Board formed with nine (9) appointed members from the parish and school community.  The terms of office are for two (2) years.  The ex-officio members of the board are the Pastor, the principal and the Bishop of the Diocese of Steubenville.

This organization is the parent group of the school that helps organize the volunteers and activities within the school. The officers, who include the president, the vice-president, the recording secretary, the corresponding secretary and the treasurer, comprise the executive committee.  Members of the executive committee are nominated by the board or the members at large and voted-upon by the general membership.  Some areas in which the Home and School Association is involved are: lunchroom and playground supervision, homeroom parents, book fair, end of year picnic, hot lunch coordinators, guest speakers, etc.  Parents of all students attending St. Mary School are members of Home and School.

This organization oversees the boys and girls basketball and cheerleader programs for St. Mary students in grades 3 – 6.  The Booster Organization also suns the youth basket league in Marietta for girls in grades 3 – 6 and for boys in grades 3 and 4.  Parents of all students attending St. Mary School are members of the Booster Organization.

What Our Alumni & Parents Say About Us

"Attending St. Mary Catholic School had a huge impact on my success at Parkersburg Catholic High School. St. Mary's gave me the tools that were needed to transition into high school such as an excellent background in subjects such as English, Math, and Science. In addition to the challenging curriculum, St. Mary's gave me friendships that will last a lifetime. The intimate class sizes allow teachers to assist their class in ways that public schools can not. The teachers at St. Mary's care about their student's success. To this day, my former teachers at St. Mary's check up on me and continue to support my journey as a student."

“St. Mary Catholic School provides a thoughtful, caring environment for children to learn and grow, with family values at the core. While a student at St. Mary’s, I learned the fundamentals that still impact me today.”

”My understanding and appreciation for life is undoubtedly enhanced because of Saint Mary Catholic School’s willingness to address all of my needs. From there, I always felt empowered to accomplish my goals. From academic studies to sporting events, I enjoyed the sense of family which really allowed me to feel cared about each day.”

"My name is Christy Minard, and my husband Alex and I have had three children at St. Mary School. My oldest just graduated from eighth grade this year. We started her at this school because we wanted her to have a solid start for reading in kindergarten. We thought we would switch to Washington Elementary after one year since we are not Catholic. Her kindergarten class was going to have twelve students here which seemed like a fantastic student teacher ratio. Well, her first year went so smoothly and we loved the teachers and faculty so much that we never switched. That was nine years ago. My third child just completed kindergarten, and I'm looking forward to eight more amazing years there for him. The thing that I have been the most impressed with about the school is the academics. I have no doubt that as my oldest heads into ninth grade at Marietta High School, she is very prepared."

"Enrolling our daughters at St. Mary Catholic School was the best choice that we could have made for their educational, social, and spiritual development. Our only two regrets are that we did not know about the school earlier and that they cannot stay longer. St. Mary provides the challenging educational environment that our children require while at the same time, accommodates their very diverse learning styles. With outstanding faculty, not only in core subjects like Science and English but also in classes like Music and Art, the education that the girls have received has been an excellent return on our investment. Socially, the girls were welcomed by their classmates since day one and have had opportunities to participate in sports and organizations like student council that are not always available to all students attending public school.  We are also extremely pleased by the involvement of and support for the school by the clergy from both the Basilica and Steubenville Diocese. With this multi-faceted approach to education, we know that our daughters will finish their time at St. Mary Catholic School not only as good students but as good Christians. We would encourage anyone pursuing the best education possible for their children in the Mid-Ohio Valley to consider St. Mary Catholic School."
