The St. Mary’s staff believes in partnering with families for the children’s education. Parent involvement is important to the success of our program. All parents are invited to participate in the preschool as much as their schedule will permit. We welcome and encourage parents to volunteer! We hope to have a homeroom parent, a basket parent, and a yearbook parent in each classroom. We will also need parent volunteers to help with classroom parties, preparing classroom materials, fund raisers, and special events.
