SMS CLASS OF 2020 EARN HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS

Once again, St. Mary School’s eighth graders who are attending Catholic high schools in the Fall were all accepted to their first choice school.

Self-discipline and hard work throughout their years at St. Mary School resulted in high school scholarships totaling $146,450.00 from these prestigious institutions:  Sacred Heart Academy of Buffalo, St. Joseph Collegiate Institute, Mount St. Mary’s Academy, Nardin High School, St. Mary’s High School and Canisius High School.

We are so very proud of each member of our SMS Class of 2020.  Our faith-filled leaders will also be moving on to Clarence, Williamsville North, Amherst, and Hutchinson Central Technical high schools.

CONGRATULATIONS to Abby Karaszewski and Ashley Masci, who attended St. Mary School (SMS) from preschool through eighth grade excelling academically and taking part in numerous extracurricular activities and service ministries while at SMS, each received a scholarship to attend Mount St. Mary Academy. They chose “The Mount” because they were looking for a school that emulated St. Mary School: Catholic, small, close-knit, nurturing, with rigorous academics and opportunities to develop themselves into well-rounded faith-filled leaders. Both young ladies shared that their experiences and education at SMS had a direct effect on their success at Mount St. Mary Academy and provided the foundation for continued success in college and beyond.

7th Grade Makerspace to “716 Ear Savers”: SMS Student Provides Relief to Healthcare Workers

Introduced to 3-D printing in the St. Mary School Makerspace, “The Hive”, Dylan learned how to utilize “Tinkercad” to program a 3-D printer. Intrigued by engineering and called to serve others, Dylan decided to put the 3-D printer he received for Christmas to work making plastic ear savers that relieve the stress on the backs of healthcare workers’ ears when wearing masks. He has since used his savings to buy a second printer so that he can increase production (to date he has distributed 400).

SMS 7th Grader Crushes Covid

St. Mary School seventh grader, Rocco Molinaro, decided to doodle…he came up with a buffalo crushing the Covid-19 virus…he had the graphic put on t-shirts… and now, he is giving back to his community!

Rocco stated, “Our community has been amazing. People are donating food to the workers in hospitals everyday and my dad has been sending food out as well. When I decided to sell my shirts, I wanted to be able to continue to help send meals. We are sending food to frontline workers but I wanted to also help feed people that are having financial troubles. Many people have lost their jobs and everyone needs to eat. With the proceeds of my most recent shirts, I plan to send meals to people who really need it. Our community has a lot of pride and we really pull together and help each other when people need it. I hope my shirts show that together our community will crush COVID and come out stronger than before!”

Rocco also plans to donate some t-shirts to some of our area hospital workers.
