As the Thanksgiving holidays approach, we wish you and your families a blessed time together. We are thankful that you have chosen St. Thomas More Catholic High School. Our campus is closed Monday, November 19 - Sunday, November 25 with the exception of club or sport activities.


We are so close to 25% of the Envision More goal.  Help us get to a Quarter of the Way by New Years Day!  You can make a difference with as little as $2.00/week.  Every gift counts.


Please join us as we thank the donors who have so generously given to Envision More.


Counseling TidBits

JUULing. Vaping. E-Cigarettes. Juice. This generation is getting hooked on the non-traditional method of smoking at alarming rates. It is important for us, as parents, to be educated on this new trend of addictive e-cigarettes. Please take the time to read through the following article from Child Mind on Teen Vaping.


College Updates

Remind your student to use this break, if possible to work on college applications and scholarship searches. Deadlines are approaching.  Please visit Dr. Fruge's web page for helpful tips and important deadline information.  Please remember STM is closed for the week and Dr. Fruge will not be on campus.
