Support SMS

Occasionally people call and ask how they may support the next generation of students at St. Mary’s School. To make a tax deductible, monetary donation, make checks payable to St. Mary Catholic Community School and send them to:

St. Mary Catholic Community School
Attn: Donor Generosity
405 East Joliet Street
Crown Point, IN 46307

Your support is very much appreciated and will help add to the legacy of St. Mary Catholic Community School. If you have further questions please call Mr. Tom Ruiz, Principal (219-663-0676) or Ms. Jan Mucha, Business Manager (219-663-0044).


Teacher Appreciation Walkathon:

Over the past several years St. Mary’s school children have held a “Teacher Appreciation Walkathon” to raise funds and visibly show their thanks and appreciation for the teachers at St. Mary’s.  The walkathon is organized by the Parish Council.  Students walk through the streets of Crown Point letting all in the area know that we have the greatest teachers at our school.  If you are interested in showing  your support for our teachers with a cash donation please contact principal, Tom Ruiz or call him at 219-663-0676 for further information.  All monies raised will be given to the teachers who dedicate their lives to providing a Catholic education to the children of St. Mary’s.

Other Opportunities for Support

If you are interested in some particular items currently needed at St. Mary's, following is a short list and their approximate value:

Retiring Teacher Appreciation Fund
Help fund a monetary gift for a retiring teacher who has dedicated their life to the children of St. Mary’s.

Teacher Appreciation Walk-a-thon
Help pitch in and show your appreciation to the SMS teachers.  Your $25 donation sponsors a child.

Field Trip Assistance
We hate to exclude a child from attending a field trip because of financial reasons.  Your donation helps us make sure everyone can go!

Theater Production
Help pay for props and materials for sets.

Sponsor a Club
Chess Club, Environmental Club, Robotics Club, Science Olympiad, etc.  It’s the donor’s choice!

Washington DC Trip Assistance
Every year our 8th grade class makes an annual trip to our nation’s capital.  It’s a St. Mary’s tradition.  Unfortunately, some students miss out on this “trip of a lifetime” with their classmates due to lack of finances.  Your donation will provide a scholarship for a deserving student.

Smartboard for Preschool

Smartboards have become a valuable teaching tool.  Our K-8 classrooms are equipped with Smartboards and interactive projectors.  Pre-K and Junior Pre-K are the final two rooms to receive an interactive Smartboard.  Your donation can make this happen for our youngest Wildcats.

Smart Table
