Mr. Dinis Camara
I have served as a member of the School Advisory Board since the 2015-2016 school year.  I grew up in St. Mary's Parish and graduated from St. Mary's in 1991.  I've served as a member of the Planning, Policy and Assessment committee.  I also chair the Alumni Subcommittee which is also known as the St. Mary's School Alumni Association.  I currently have a 4th grader and a 2nd grader who are excited to go to St. Mary's!

Mr. Simon Cauchi
My immediate family and I have been parishioners at St. Mary’s Church since 2004, when they moved to the USA from Europe, and settled in the Rockville area. We currently have three children at S. Mary’s school – a 8th grader, a 6th grader, and a 4th grader. Our first child started attending St. Mary’s school in 2008 and never looked back. The kids are very happy at this school; they are growing both academically and emotionally, and are also keen participants of the various extra-curriculum activities that the school offers. I joined the School Advisory Board in September 2015 and have been Chair of the Planning, Policy and Assessment committee since then. I am also involved in certain extra-curriculum school activities that the school hosts or charters.

This is Laura’s first year serving on the School Advisory Board, but has participated in various school activities and functions. She is excited to serve the engaged and supportive school community of educators and families.
