Quizzo - Save the Date!!!

Our next Quizzo Night will be held on Saturday, January 25th at 7:00 PM in the gym. Doors will open at 6:30. This is a BYOB event, so feel free to bring a cooler with your favorite beverages and snacks! We will provide water, pretzels, desserts and coffee.


Tickets are $10 per person and teams can have a maximum of 10 players.  We will also be selling 50/50 and gift basket raffle tickets for those of you feeling lucky!


As you know, many changes are taking place at our school. Every dollar that we earn in fundraising matters immensely as we try to operate the school independently from the church. Therefore, it is always greatly appreciated when our events are well attended. Please gather as many family and friends as you can to come out for a fun night of trivia with your SMS family! As always, thank you for supporting St. Martha School!

Open House and Registration for 2020-2021

Our annual Catholic Schools Week Open House will be directly after the 10:00 AM Mass on Sunday, January 26th! Join us for Mass and then enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast in the gym hosted by our Home & School Association. Feel free to walk around the school, visit with our teachers, and tour their classrooms. If you already have children in our school, it's a great time to come out and visit with your SMS family. If you're considering St. Martha School for your child, it's a great chance to see what we're all about and get feedback from other parents and students.


Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will take place in the Latin Room by the gym. If you'd like to register a new student, please be sure to bring a copy of their birth certificate, baptismal certificate (if applicable), and most recent immunization records. For those of you who are re-registering, the school should already have this information on file. If you have any questions, please call Maria Gilbert at 215-632-0320. We look forward to seeing you!

Candygrams

The yearbook staff will be selling Valentine candygrams every day at lunch from Monday, January 27th through Tuesday, February 11th for 50 cents each. A candygram is a little note with a sweet treat attached just to let someone special know they are being thought of on Valentine's Day. Send them to anyone in the school: siblings, classmates, or even teachers! Candygrams will also be available at the Open House on Sunday, January 26th. Thank you for supporting the SMS yearbook!
