Letters from Pastor & Executive Director



I have been pastor at St. Mary Queen of the Universe Parish for over six years now and have had the privilege of having St. Mary Grade School under my care as well.  Over my 29 years of priesthood, I have been assigned to 3 parishes, all of which had a grade school attached to them.  I have always found that the administration, faculty and staff are exceedingly dedicated to their profession and truly love educating and serving the students in their charge.  A strong aspect of that love is their deep commitment to their Catholic/Christian faith and their desire to share that faith with the children.  If you have or are planning to choose St. Mary Grade School for your child’s/children’s education, I believe you will be very glad you did so.  Our Lord Jesus Christ is the foremost teacher in all aspects of a Christian’s life, and you will find that He is the preeminent teacher at St. Mary Grade School.  May God continue to bless our school, and may our patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary, always intercede on our behalf.


Peace & Prayers:  Fr. Kevin Weber


Letter from the Executive Director

Welcome to our Catholic Learning Community! Education today is a complex task. Children and young people must be guaranteed the right to develop at their own physical and intellectual capabilities, with an emphasis on their spiritual formation as well. The summary of the school's mission is to educate the whole child, "mind, body, and spirit." The church firmly believes that "parents, having given life to their children, are their primary educators." St. Mary's School recognizes that parents entrust the school to provide a quality education for their children. St. Mary's School is a PreK-6 grade school. The foundation of the school is based on traditional values with the focus on the individual needs of the child. Our motto "Love of Learning and Learning to Love" encompasses the idea of instilling the mastery of learning and living our lives in Christian character. The spirit of St. Mary's School is one of family. Parents are deeply committed to the school's mission. Students are involved in a variety of extracurricular activities, including an after school service project club. The focus of each individual student is evident by the small class size, as well as the monitoring of each child's development. God has made each person unique and it is our goal to educate each student with the grace of individuality.

Sincerely,  Dr. Nick Compagnone
