Dear Parents,

Thank you for a fantastic week! I appreciate all of your support during our Annual Fund Kick Off Week! It was wonderful to see everyone during Brown Bag Lunches. Special thanks to all of the volunteers who donated baked goods and/or gave their time to help with the PLUS Bake Sales.

I also want to thank the Annual Fund Chairs, Nick and Veronica Massiate, the Angelus Society Chairs, Skip and Casey Redd, and all of the Annual Fund Committee for being such wonderful Ambassadors for our school. 

Next week is another busy week with the Golf Tournament on Monday and the Future Family Open House on Friday.

Thank you again for all your support! Have a great weekend!

Blessings, 
Dr. Kathleen Cox

Special Note: We will not have to make up our weather day last week.

Service Project

Now through Friday, October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis) , our PK, Kindergarten, and First Grade are sponsoring a service project to collect items for Special Pals to help abandoned animals.  We invite all families to contribute.

Please click here  for a list of needed items.

Please click here  for more information on Special Pals.

Special Pals is a no-kill, nonprofit, Houston area animal shelter that relies on donations. Their mission is to make a measurable and sustainable difference in the pet population by offering affordable pet care services, rescue and rehabilitation, finding forever homes, and providing responsible pet ownership education.  

Pope Francis has established September 1 as an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Pope Francis wishes to remind us that we are called to be protectors of God's handiwork and this includes the care for God's creatures, great and small.  

St. Francis of Assisi also had a devotion to God that was expressed through his love for all of God's creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God. 



Thank you to Lexie Boudreaux and Molly Evans for planning our Sunday Funday at the Astros game. 150 SMCS students and parents cheered on the 'Stros as they clinched the AL West title.


Thank you to Ivonne Marquez and Mariana Ravell for doing an amazing job with our Bake Sales this week! Thank you to all of our volunteers that helped with the Bake Sale, Spirit Sale and Chick-fil-a. Thank you to Christina Knust for organizing our Chick-fil-a meals!
