Home and School Association
The Mater Dei Home and School Association is an organization intended to provide teachers and parents with opportunities to learn how to become more effective in their roles. As the name of the organization suggests, it brings together the two most important influences in a child’s life: the home and the school. The main focus of the Home & School Association is to enrich the lives of our families and enhance the students’ school experience through social and fundraising events.

Did you know...SCRIP helps you save money on tuition??
SCRIP is a year round gift card program. We buy gift cards at a discount from major retailers, restaurants, and grocery stores and sell them to you at face value. The discount per gift card varies from 5% to 25%, depending on the merchant. The rebate is split between you and Mater Dei – you get credit toward your tuition and the school’s portion of the discount is reinvested in the school. Families receive 80% and Mater Dei receives 20% of the percentage given from the merchant. When you take advantage of SCRIP, you earn tuition credits just by making regular household purchases. Instead of paying with cash or credit, use prepaid gift cards from local stores and some of America’s most trusted retailers.
Purchase SCRIP on the go! SCRIP can now be purchased using the RaiseRight mobile app. Download it for free from the app store and log-in with your current ShopWithScrip account. Families new to SCRIP can also use the RaiseRight mobile app to enroll in the program and create an account. You will need Mater Dei's enrollment code to complete your registration.
For more details, visit the SCRIP program page.

Mary, Seat of Wisdom, Teach Us Love
Our theme for the 2022-2023 school year is Mary, Seat of Wisdom, Teach Us Love. The theme comes from an ancient title given to Mary, Sedes Sapientiae. This title was bestowed upon Mary because she held Jesus, the Divine Wisdom, on her lap. Our Blessed Mother is constantly acknowledged as a model of Wisdom and Love. Mary has much to teach us. As children of God, and Catholic educators, we need to open our hearts and be willing to sit at the feet of Mary to receive the gift of spiritual Wisdom and learn from Mary how to love.
