SMS Summer Blog Post #1 - 6/23/17

SMS Comings and Goings

We would like to thank Caitlin and Lauren Henzler for their dedication to the After Care program. Congratulations to both of them as they move on to new chapters in their lives.

Welcome to our new Office Staff member! Michelle Howard has taken over the recently vacated administrative support position and we are delighted to have such a knowledgeable person take over so quickly. Mrs. Howard will handle the daily tasks that Mrs. Budnick oversaw with a few additions. 

Now Hiring! - SMS Aftercare is looking for a few people to supervise the program on most school days from 3:30 to 6 pm.  Are you interested? Do you know someone who would be a good fit? Please share the information or have the person contact Mrs. Williamson.

IOWA Test Results & Middle School Placement Letters - Families with students entering grades 4-8 next year will receive IOWA Test Results via U.S. Mail.  If your child(ren) are entering grades 6-8 in the the fall, this mailing will also contain class placement information.  Please note that if you have not returned your Family Enrollment Agreement and Fee, no placement information will be included in the mailing.  This mailing was sent out on Thursday, 6/22/17.  If you do not receive your mailing or have questions, please contact the school office.

Getting Off to a Good Start - Our "Back to School" page is now available on the school blog.  Just use the tab at the top of the blog's navigation bar or click here.

Home & School Association

A calendar of major events is being finalized so watch for your opportunity to help with a variety of activities that make SMS so great! As you are planning your fall family time, please try to include our 60th Anniversary Mass celebration on Saturday, September 23 at the 5pm Mass. This is the exact date that SMS opened.  HSA will need people to help promote the event and also to plan a reception/supper afterwards. Remember how much fun the pizza supper was last winter? We had over 150 people and it was a great time to connect with people and enjoy a meal with friends. A sign-up genius for organizing this event will be available in August.

Sweet Treat!  Sophie G., rising Gr. 7, shows
off her Cake Gypsy cupcakes.  Cake Gypsy
has offered a free dozen cupcakes to any
student with proof of perfect attendance.

This painted turtle stopped by to say hello.
If you are out and about, we hope you'll
stop by to say hello, too!

Are we having fun yet?  Again this year, you are invited to share your summer fun with our school family.  If you have some fun vacation, day trip or family photos to share, please send them along to
