From the Principal's Desk

Dear Parents,

Thank you for all your support!

Our Parent Party, Hats Off to SMCS, was a GREAT success! Special thanks to all of the people who worked so hard on the party: Monica Berckley, Development Director; Louis and Emily Macey, Party Chairs; Christina Knust and Lori Huffman, Big Board Chairs; PLUS for all their hard work on the Art Projects; Stacy Tracy and Paty Ramirez, school art teachers; and to all of the SMCS staff who volunteered at the party.

At the party, we were also excited to announce that for the 2019-2020 school year we will have a Gala chaired by the Schultz's and the Pugh's.

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for Ash Wednesday Mass.

We wish you and your families a safe and happy Spring Break!


Dr. Kathleen Cox
