Mary Skow, beloved first grade teacher at St. Thomas Early Learning Center from 1994-2007 and Head of school from 2010 to 2012 felt the gift of a STELC experience should be available to families with limited means. Because of her love and dedication to the school, the Mary Skow Fund for Tuition Assistance was established by the Board of Trustees in 2012 to create a pool of funds to help defray tuition costs for young families. Funds donated to the school in honor of Mary Skow or otherwise given to the school for tuition assistance are placed in this fund.
