Jonah Campbell’s summer adventures were largely centered around one of the sports he loves…BASEBALL! His Leland Dixie Youth 10U All-Star Team won their District Championship and went on to place Runner-Up in July’s NC State Tournament. His hard work and dedication made his family proud!

It was an exciting, memorable (and nail-biting) summer!

From Mariah Smith:
"I am an alumni of St. Mary Catholic School. I attended school here from 3rd- 8th grades. St. Mary's has helped me succeed not only in high school but also college. To this day, I am still using the knowledge, academic skills, and life skills that I learned while attending this school. I feel like I learned more at my time at St. Mary's than I did in high school. I now have two young children and have recently toured the school. The school is still as beautiful as ever and has undergone an amazing renovation while keeping the history of the school intact. I was thoroughly impressed with the curriculum and opportunities available for students. While I want my children to have a good foundation in the usual core courses, I also want them to have a good foundation in Catholic values, Spanish, technology, and music, all of which St. Mary's offers. When your children attend St. Mary's, you really are becoming part of the family. There are small class sizes and everyone knows each other. I look forward to sending my children here very soon!"
(Mariah and her mother toured the school last week in hopes of bringing her own children here in the fall. She sent these comments after her visit. Welcome Home Mariah and the whole Smith family!)
