St. Mary Elementary and Pope John Paul II Middle School seeks a qualified, diverse student body who add to the quality of academic, religious, and social life of St. Mary Elementary and Pope John Paul II Middle School. St. Mary Elementary and Pope John Paul II Middle School accepts students with special needs when reasonable accommodations can be made to meet their needs. St. Mary Elementary and Pope John Paul II Middle School reserves the right to grant or deny admission in our sole and absolute pastoral discretion.
Classroom enrollment is limited to 20 students in Grades Pre-school through Two and 25 in Grades Three through Eight. Two additional spaces are left to allow enrollment for new members of the parish/school. Once the classroom enrollment size has been reached, it will be determined whether we increase the class size by adding an aide, splitting the class in two or starting a waiting list.
For St. Mary parishioners, worshipping at St. Mary Parish is an essential component in developing our faith life. Your attendance at Mass is an important witness, not only to your children, but to all parish children and adults that regular participation in the sacraments is essential to our way of life as Catholics. This is to be demonstrated by giving a parish envelope in the offertory basket on a weekly basis. We encourage you to engage your children in additional forms of daily family prayer as well.
