Brief History: St. Mary's school started out in the traditional way as a parish grade school in 1950. In 1990 the four Catholic parishes in Waukesha, (St. John Neumann, St. Joseph, St. Mary and St. William) collaborated to form the Waukesha Catholic School System. By coming together each school's resources were combined to better serve the students and the Catholic community of Waukesha. There are three campuses. St. Mary and St. William Campus provide instruction from K4 through grade 5. St. Joseph Campus offers instruction from grades 6 through 8. This gives the school system the ability to offer an integrated curriculum from grades K4-8.
Number of Students: 319 at St. Mary Campus in grades K4-5
What We Do Best: We develop well educated, caring and confident individuals who lead Christ-centered lives and are inspired to build a better world.
• Recently had two additional SmartBoards installed at the school which were purchased with money raised from our Home and School Association and Auction.
• St. Mary Campus was recently awarded a $500 check from Couri Insurance and ServiceMaster.
• United Visual sponsored a contest asking teachers how they use SMART technology to deliver lessons. Mrs. Callaway, technology instructional assistant, entered the contest and was awarded a SMART Senteo Student Response System - a 32 remote package. This system will allow yet another way for us to incorporate technology and differentiate instruction.
Our Motto: Respect, Responsibility and Reverence
Upcoming Events: Halloween Parade through the neighborhood at 2:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30
What's More: Our staff, along with those of 12 other schools, are working together to improve Reading/Language Arts instruction for all of our students. We are learning about specific instructional strategies that can be utilized in the Reading/Language Arts classroom, reviewing and revising the curriculum, and receiving training in the administration of a more authentic assessment of the children's reading ability.
