The Dads’ Club has been supporting activities such as school sports and computer improvements. The dads have gotten together on Saturdays to wire the School’s computers  and have also contributed funds to purchase computers.  We have coordinated with the SMA Athletic Director and After School Sports Program director to provide equipment and support team spirit as well.

Come and join us in making your child’s experience at Stella Maris Academy an excellent one. You’ll have fun at the same time!
