My family suffered financial hardship for 2012 and was ready to pull the kids out of ST. M, Ms. Eisel, the pricipal, told us not to. Ms. Eisel along with the whole St. Marys community found a way for my kids to stay and we will be returning for 2013/14. The whole St. Marys community is very supportive of each other. I thank all of them from the botom of my heart.
