Great Performance by our Chess Club
The STM chess team competed in the Catholic School League Invitational Chess Tournament over the weekend. Open to 1st through 8th grade students, there were ten schools represented at the tournament. Seven of the twelve STM students competing this weekend received awards of third place or higher. Mr. Winslow, the club sponsor, was very excited about the team performance saying the team is young with 7 members in 6th grade or below. STM finished only ½ point behind the first place team. Go Tigers!
St. Thomas More Parish School, The Knight of Columbus Southwest Council 3910, and American Wheelchair Mission helped give mobility & freedom to our Veterans by donating over $30,000 to provide over 200 wheelchairs.
At the conclusion of the weekly All-School Mass, one grade-level is chosen to take the "Vocations Chalice" back to class with them. The chalice is displayed in the classroom during the upcoming week and the class says special prayers for vocations.
Buddy Williams was selected to represent the 8th grade class.
