St. Mary's High School - Lancer Parent Partnership

Fashion Show Coming April 21

Now that the holidays are over, the planning for the spring Fashion Show, Denim and Diamonds, will be in full swing!

This year’s Fashion Show will be held on Thursday, April 21, at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens Restaurant, beginning at 5 p.m. As the Lancer Parent Partnership’s only fundraiser, the event raises money for student scholarships, as well as parent networking socials and faculty and staff appreciation events.

The annual fashion show is a wonderful evening of fun, food, fashions, and fabulous prizes! Tickets will be $45 and include admission, a door prize ticket, a four-course dinner, and the show. Tables of ten are available. A cash bar will be available, as well as a theme basket raffle. Please invite your friends and family from outside the St. Mary’s community and help us showcase this great event to benefit our students!

If you would like to help, please e-mail Sandy Gibson at There are many ways to help, including assisting with the models, decorating, obtaining theme basket donations, and helping with admissions and raffles the night of the event. We are also looking for vendors and stores for fashions that our models can showcase.

The online Model Sign Up Form is available at the right beginning January 11 through February 22. All students and faculty are encouraged to sign up early if you would like to model in the show. Any applicants interested in modeling after the February 22 deadline will be placed on a wait list.

Welcome to the
Lancer Parent Partnership Page

Formerly known as the Parent Teacher Guild, the Lancer Parent Partnership focuses on being a resource for parents of students at all grade levels and as a liaison to the SMHS administration and Board of Trustees.

The group will host at least two free social events during the year to give parents an opportunity to meet other parents. Profits from a fashion show fundraiser in the spring will fund scholarships for graduating seniors and pay for teacher appreciation gifts at Christmas and during Teacher Appreciation Week.

St. Mary's opens Parent Lounge

For those parents who find themselves at school, waiting for their student to finish practice or rehearsal, St. Mary’s High School is pleased to announce the creation of the Parent Lounge in the Library.

The Lounge will offer a comfortable seating area where parents will be able to read a paper (The Buffalo News and Wall Street Journal are available) or magazines (several popular titles are available). In addition, parents are invited to bring in their laptops to access the school’s Wi-Fi network.

There will be a bulletin board which will contain information important to parent visitors to the lounge, the Wi-Fi log-in information, and other announcements that may be important to parents.

Please note that the Library will only be open to parents after 3:30 p.m. every day. The door to the Library will be closed but unlocked. Parents are asked to park in the front parking lot (not the circle).

Those who have comments regarding the Parent Lounge are encouraged to contact Mrs. Kranz or Mr. Kidder.

Mr. Kidder.
