It was a great day at the FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship for the MSM Robotics Teams! MSM was the only school with three teams representing among the 40 who qualified for the championship, and they did well as they worked hard throughout the two-day event!


The Rockettes (4962) made it all the way to the state semifinals with their robot before losing a heartbreaker against the eventual state champions. They also won the Motivate award for their outstanding community outreach efforts! They were named an alternate for advancement to the South Super Regional in Georgia. Both Makin' Stuff Move (4266) and Atomic Shock (3638) were on the cusp of making the playoff rounds and put in great efforts.


Zack Tyler and Bria Smith were named Oklahoma's two "Dean's List Finalists!" This is the highest individual award in FIRST Robotics (named for FIRST founder Dean Kamen). Zack and Bria will attend and be recognized at the FIRST World Championship in Houston in April. Erick Lassiter and Chrissa Gungoll were both semifinalists for this award as well. We have some amazing students at MSM! Congratulations to all our teams on a great FTC Season!

Catholic Schools Week at MSM Student Video (Click Here)


It's National Catholic Schools Week! Celebrate with us!


Today's theme is "Celebrating Your Community".


The benefits of a Catholic education have been studied and well documented. Results show that students who attend Catholic school receive a challenging, high-quality academic experience in a supportive enviroment, with an emphasis on Catholic values and college preperation. The self-discipline developed by students, along with learning to accept responsibility and to respect others, work together to create excellent life-long learners.


A central aspect of Catholic education is learning the importance of service to others. When students take part in service activities- both local and beyond- they demonstrate the values and faith they gain through their Catholic education and learn how to make the world a better place. When they observe how others serve the community, they gain an appreciation for how they can continue to serve others their entire lives.

We at MSM are truly thankful for the SERVICE our Mount students offer to our community far and wide... from sending packages to military troops across the world, to providing assistance to Catholic Charities, YOU, our ROCKETS are the face of Mercy & Service!

Below, enjoy a quick video showing the faces of our MSM community!

Happy Catholic Schools Week! ROCKET PRIDE!!

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at Mount St. Mary Catholic High School is a day of reflection and action.


Rocket classes were in session on this historic day. Martin Luther King, Jr. was discussed in Rocket classrooms and students were offered the opportunity to participate in Martin Luther King, Jr. Day activities throughout the OKC metro.


Over 75 MSM students attended the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day opening ceremonies at the Freedom Center, participated in the Freedom Walk, listened to several state politicians and NAACP representatives, and finished the day watching the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade.


"Participating in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day activities with my classmates by my side was a great experience! It was so neat to see all different people from all backgrounds come together," said Miranda Blakley, MSM freshman.

Mercy Moment...


In Mr. Sine's religion class, our Rocket freshmen have been learning about the three pillars of Advent; Prayer, Penance, and Alms Giving. Mr. Sine asked every freshman to donate a dollar to the City Rescue Mission to help provide a holiday meal. Mr. Sine's class collected $198.79 which will feed 113 people a holiday season meal. What a great example of living out our MSM Mercy Values!
