Adopt-a-Family Program


Greetings St. Mary’s families,
As the snow begins to fall and our beautiful campus will soon be lit with the glow of colorful lights, we prepare ourselves for the season and spirit of Christmas. We are all blessed to be a part of the St. Mary’s family.  As our motto states, God, Family, St. Mary’s. What better way to honor God, work together as a family, and show our greater community the heart of St. Mary’s through your support of the annual Adopt-a-Family program?
In 2006, Betsy and Bob Moran began this tradition of adopting families from our community who were in need at Christmastime. Now in its 16th year, our St. Mary’s community continues to share its blessings with those who are struggling. Giving help and hope allows us to show our Christian faith and encourage those who may need it, especially this time of year.
Our generous classes through their representatives have chosen to adopt 14 families for a total of 58 people this year. These recipients have been vetted and received through our local Volunteers of America and cannot afford to provide a Christmas for their families. I encourage you all to open your hearts and sign up for a single item or small monetary donation. A single act of kindness together allows us to make a huge impact on local families in need.  
Signup Genius lists are provided below by class. Please take a moment to sign up for whatever you are able to. Thank you for allowing St. Mary’s Prep to continue this important tradition.
Wishing you bountiful peace and blessings this Christmas,
Michelle McShane
OLSM Moms and Dads Club President

The Moms and Dads Club held a Homecoming Tailgate on Friday night, October 7th before the big game against CC!  Plenty of food and fun was had by all who attended!  


Dear Parents,

The Moms and Dads Club is excited to kick off a new year with new events, and new ideas, as well as keeping our same OLSM Spirit! Watch for new events like the Polish Harvest coming October 1st, the live and on-campus Auction on March 18, and the Concert at the Lake on May 28th. With the changes in our events, the Moms and Dads Club has in turn needed to change and update the PIP contract that each family is to sign to keep consistent with its needs and fundraising efforts. The new PIP requirement for the 2022-2023 school year is 25 hours per family. The new raffle ticket requirement is 25 tickets to sell for a total of $500 ($20 per ticket). The contract and more information are linked below. PIP hour opportunities will be sent through the Prep Office and may be found on the Moms and Dads Club website at Raffle tickets will be distributed beginning September 22. Thank you for supporting your OLSM Moms and Dads Club and helping to raise funds and fun for our students, staff, and families of Orchard Lake St. Mary's.


Please return the completed contract below to Ms. Kosco in the Prep office by the first day of school. You may also email it to [email protected].
