What's Happening

 Last weekend, Mary Star of the Sea Elementary held its 17th annual Vegas Night Gala and it was a huge success! The event was attended by over 240 of our families, friends and parishioners that helped raise money to support our students and school.  The Boot Scootin Western Night theme was fun, the food was fantastic and the games exciting.   Thank you to all those who attended, the local businesses and individuals that donated, to our Parent Board, Consultative Board, the many volunteers, our faculty and staff and of course, our pastor, Fr Harrigan.  


This week is Catholic Schools Week in the Archdiocese and we are so proud of our students, families and faculty that make MSSE so special.  On Sunday, February 24, from 9am to 1pm,  we will be hosting an Open House.  All are invited to come meet the staff, see the clasdrooms and talk with our students. We are offering a special invitation to our fellow parishioners with children in Religious Education. Please come see how truly affordable a full-time Catholic education can be.  

Thank you for being a part of successes in 2018 and we can go even farther in 2019 with the new Parent Referral Program sponsored by the Dept. of Catholic Schools! Effective immediately, for our enrolled families, any referrals submitted through the referral portal below will get you one step closer to winning these incentives.        Referral Portal: https://catholiced.com/refer/

Tuition Discount: If your referral enrolls, both you and your referral will receive $100 off tuition, up to the first 100 referred enrollments

iPad Raffle: Every referral submitted through the referral portal counts as 1 entry into the raffle, 5 winners will be randomly selected   Also, the school whose parents submit the most referrals based on the student population will receive a $3,000 technology grant — so let’s do this together!

A qualified referral counts as a friend, family member, or other acquaintance who has expressed interest in Catholic education. Once you submit a referral, both you and the referral will receive an email confirmation with the next steps.   This new DCS Parent Referral Program is on top of the "Refer a Friend" one month single-tuition discount we already offer here at MSSE! I encourage you to participate as actively as possible, and please spread the word! Let’s help keep our schools strong and our faith alive. Thank you for all you do!
