From a Grade 8 parent:

Dear Teachers (current and past) of St. Mary Swormville,

“My wife and I would like to thank you for your selfless dedication over the years to our son. He has received the Presidential Scholarship to Canisius High School and St. Joseph Collegiate Institute and when we look at our son with great pride, we do not do so alone. 

Our son has grown up often spending more time with you in your classrooms than with his own family in his own home. Often times when we look at him, we see the sacrifices each and every one of you has made and the impact those sacrifices has made on him. We are grateful for you giving without sacrifice and the times that you have transformed into chaperones, club leaders, coaches, directors, fans, event planners, role models, counselors, and most importantly, champions for and of your charges.”  

From the Parent of a Transfer Student:

“We transferred our daughter from public school at the start of fifth grade to St. Mary’s. The transition couldn’t have been easier and the difference for the better was seen immediately. We felt a warm welcome from the St. Mary’s community by both faculty and students. Along with excellent academics and after school activities, the faith based environment instills principles and values that we implement at home which provide a solid foundation for growth that can only lead to success. All three of our children are students at St. Mary’s now and we couldn’t be happier anywhere else. We consider ourselves very blessed to be part of this family.” – Funari Family
