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 Community Engagement 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

Baron Bazaar

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.

Grand Day at the Hall

Grandparents Day at Saint Mary's Hall

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.

Passport

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!

Ben McMurray Golf Classic

The Ben McMurray Golf Classic

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.
