A Treasured Part of SMS

St. Mary School Grandparents Club is 250 members strong! We have members from all over the world, including 15 states, 6 countries and representation from 20+ towns from Connecticut, and we look forward to growing even more. This Club is a huge success and we couldn’t be happier to have such enthusiastic, involved and loving grandparents. Our vision has come to fruition as our Grandparents Club shares their time, talent and treasures with our school & students enriching what we hold so dear to us here at St. Mary.

“Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of children is their fathers.”


Join Us

Are you interested in being a part of this “Grandparents Club?” Being a member means you will receive letters every month or so with information on events, Masses, service projects, fundraisers, stories about what the students are doing and updates on what’s happening at school.  In addition we let you know about the many opportunities to get involved and volunteer should you be interested.  You are not obligated to do anything but will enjoy receiving our notes, photos and videos about all the great things going on at our school.

If you’d like to learn more, please email us at and include your name, home address & phone number, email address and the name of your grandchild(ren) attending St. Mary School. Please be sure to put “Grandparents Club” in the subject line. Once you sign up, you will begin to receive monthly notes.

Our Grandparent Volunteers

Thank you to many grandmas and grandpas that volunteered last year.  You all have such big heart and smiles and we love having you in school with us! From events, field day, and even our lunchroom volunteers, you make a difference in the lives of your grandchildren and in the lives of all of the children at St. Mary School!
