The Cornerstone Program at Mount St. Mary Catholic High School was created in the fall of 2017 to allow students with disabilities the opportunity to receive a Catholic high school education. The program integrates students with disabilities into the daily school life of MSM with the focus of having the students in the program included in as much of the typical high school environment as possible.


Cornerstone Inclusion Program students participate in the regular school routine each day and attend classes such as English, science and math. Students are paired with "Cornerstone Scholars" or upperclassmen who are assigned to attend classes with the cornerstone student to assist them during class.


The Cornerstone Program just finished it's inaugural year with it's first student, Jacob and welcomed it's second student this year, Abigail. As we look back on the first year, we would like to reflect on all the accomplishments and memories.....


"To be in an inclusive environment but have expectations and achieve goals and dreams is amazing, because Jacob has big dreams. He is going world history, algebra... he is learning things no one would have expected him to learn or retain. Inclusion has helped him prepare for his life and dreams. The Mount cares whether he's here or not, or if he does his work. Everybody makes him feel welcome and holds him accountable." said Mrs. Brooks, Jacobs mother.


"Our daughter Abigail is a freshman at MSM and is in the Cornerstone Program. Although there have been some adjustments, as we expected, Abigail is doing very well. She is being challenged academically and growing socially. The MSM administration, teachers and staff have been exceptionally supportive. Her Cornerstone scholars have just been terrific. We feel like we are surrounded by a circle of love and are blessed that Abigail has had this opportunity for a Catholic education (along with her sister Julianne, a typical student in the 9th grade at MSM). " said Mrs Rogers, Mother of current Cornerstone Student, Abigail.


"Where do I begin to explain what Jacob and Abigail have done FOR and TO the Mount community? These wonderful students have brought such joy and love into our lives. Every day they remind us of God's love and the beauty of life! God shines through Jacob and Abigail, and it is an honor and privilege to have the Brooks and Rogers Family as part of The Mount Family." said Mrs. DeNegri, MSM Principal.

Members from Mount St. Mary Student Council attended the Student Council State Convention hosted by Bixby High School this past weekend. The students participated in workshops, networked with 1,600 other Student Council members across the state, heard from outstanding speakers, and learned a variety of tools and techniques to bring back to Mount St. Mary.


We are so proud of these Rocket leaders and excited for the difference they are going to make in our school community!



Rocket Boys Basketball spent their afternoon on November 3 volunteering with the Oklahoma Basketball Special Olympics program! While volunteering, our Rockets served as referee for games, kept score, and helped athletes on the floor during games.


"Helping out and serving at this event was a great day for myself and the basketball team. Giving back to the community and service to others is something our program and school is always talking about to our students. It was an honor for Mount St. Mary to be a part of this great day. It was great to see the passion and love for the game of basketball in full affect that day and our program be a part of it all!" said Brandon Jackson, Head MSM Basketball Coach.

MSM Art students Calliope Staudt and Juli Meraz participated in a collaborative work of art with MSM Art Teacher, Mrs. Blake. The work is showcased in a special exhibit at Paseo One Gallery November 2nd through November 17th. This is an exhibit in which Oklahoma art educators collaborated with their student(s) to honor art education in the state of Oklahoma, and more specifically one of our states educators who passed away, Karen Kirkpatrick. She was a giant in her contributions to Art education in Oklahoma.


Juli and Calliope attended the opening weekend events with MSM teacher Mrs. Blake to view their exhibit. (Pictured below.)


We hope that our Mount family can make it out to the exhibit to help us celebrate our amazing MSM Art Teacher, Mrs. Blake and her outstanding students Calliope and Juli!


"The beautiful thing about making this work of visual art, was that the three of us - Juli, Calliope, and myself - were able to contribute across the board in multiple layers. We were always able to see the work as a whole, work together collectively, and appreciate each others' work. What a lesson!! It was a magical process and will truly be a highlight of my teaching career as an artist and a teacher. What an honor!" said Kathleen Blake, MSM Art Teacher.


"I was incredibly honored to get to collaborate with Mrs. Blake and Julie on this project. We all really enjoyed working together and it was awesome to be able to be featured in a public gallery." said Calliope Staudt, MSM student.

MSM Senior Erick Lassiter spent part of his summer at "Summer Leaders Experience," also known as "West Point Summer Leaders Experience." Erick spent a week at the most prestigious Military Academy in the world to learn about the academy and its educational and leadership development programs.


Erick plans to become an active duty officer through either West Point or ROTC. After graduation, he also plans to attend medical school and enter into the medical corps.


"While my family and I were getting our security passes and we mentioned that we were here for SLE, a lady behind us told us that it was a very eye-opening program for her daughter, who was now an ROTC cadet. I have to agree with her because it was an eye-opening experience for myself seeing what West Point was like, with 5:00 A.M. PT and talking with current cadets, and what the Army had to offer, especially through "field-day" where we talked with active duty soldiers about their roles and what their Army branches do. I had a great experience at West Point!" said Erik Lassiter, MSM senior.


Congratulations to MSM student Kyle Yeakley on winning the award for the best Eagle Scout project for the sooner district!
