EAGLE WEEKLY
SMA HIGH SCHOOL
FROM THE ASSISTANT HEAD OF SCHOOL

Dear SMA Families and Friends,

Many important factors impact student success. To mention a few, cadets that show a commitment to education, a motivation to learn new things, and are connected to their school either by participating in sports and /or extracurricular activities or clubs have a better high school experience. I encourage you to come to school purposefully to learn and get connected with all the amazing activities we have to offer at SMA. Other important factors for student success are grit, resilience, and the ability to reflect and make changes that impact your life in a positive manner. Therefore, I encourage you all to persevere daily in the pursuit of your goals and dreams and get plugged in to the SMA way of life! Your high school experience depends on it!

Some reminders for the weeks to come are the following:

PERT testing on February 12, 14 & 15
