Tradition and community are words often used to describe the unique atmosphere students, families, staff, alumni, and friends enjoy at Saint Mary's Hall.
The Office of Advancement coordinates a number of special events to honor our traditions, build community, and support the mission of our school. These special events are great ways for us to gather together, and we rely on a large number of volunteers to make these events exciting and fun!
Baron Bazaar (our back-to-school event) is designed to help families check off all of their back-to-school “to-do’s” in one spot. Booths are set up to provide information about all the major divisions and departments of our school, and students may register for after-school activities and clubs. Class schedules, locker assignments, textbooks, and parking permits are also distributed, and families are invited to shop for uniforms and SMH spirit gear.
Fiesta is our annual all-school fall carnival. This fun event brings the SMH community together for good food, games, and great prizes! Fiesta offers a wide range of games and activities to keep Barons of all ages excited and engaged. There is also a variety of delicious food and treats available, including:

Saint Mary's Hall grandparents play an important role in their grandchildren's lives, and we value them. Every spring, we host Grand Day at the Hall to honor our students' grandparents. On this special day, students, grandparents, and grand friends enjoy breakfast together, take a professional keepsake photo, and visit classrooms.
Our golf tournament, originally launched in 2003, holds great meaning within our Saint Mary’s Hall family.
In 2005, the tournament was renamed the Ben McMurray Golf Classic as a living memorial and celebration of the life of former SMH student Ben McMurray (Class of 2006).
The Ben McMurray Golf Classic, is a four-man scramble tournament for avid and novice golfers alike, and takes place at the picturesque Quarry Golf Club. During the Ben McMurray Golf Classic, golfers vie for the title of tournament champion, complete with a “Purple Jacket” and Tournament Cup, which are presented at the tournament celebration party. Tournament sponsorships and team entries support the SMH Athletic Department and the Ben McMurray Scholarship Fund.
Passport (our fundraising gala and auction) is held every two years, and is a great opportunity for the Saint Mary's Hall community to gather and celebrate Saint Mary's Hall. Partygoers can bid on great items in an online auction, and themed packages.
In addition, premium parking spaces, vacation getaways, fabulous jewelry, and other treasures are available in an exciting "Passport Only" live auction!
