Congratulations to all of the Saint Mary School seventh grade students who participated in the School Science Fair in December.  It was a huge success thanks to the more than 50 volunteers from the parish and the community who helped judge the event.  This interaction inspires our students in their scientific endeavors and encourages them to give back to the community.  The students are appreciative of those who share their talents in this process.


The top winner is Alycia Zimmerman - Behavioral Science project “The Bias Within.”  


The remaining top finishers are:

Natalie Seidl - Behavioral Science project “Making Sense of Senses.”
