Dear Parents and Guardians,
Holy Week is a week our faith is lived out in the Bible. It begins with Palm Sunday as Jesus enters Jerusalem with many adorers as life is good at this time. Then it moves to Holy Thursday, the Last Supper/the first mass. Good Friday follows with the passion, suffering and death of Our Lord. The conclusion is found in the joy of Easter Sunday. Throughout our Lord’s journey we can find ourselves. Finding honor, feasting with friends and family, being a servant, sacrifice, prayer in difficult times, being judged and wrongly accused and joy at the end of a trying journey.
SMSA and I wish you a happy and blessed Easter. May you and your family find Jesus during this most important celebration within the church community. Thank you for sharing your child(ren) with SMSA as they help create the face of Christ and Christ’s love within our community. We all have an important role to play and a purpose to fulfill.
Thank you for your continued partnership with SMSA. Together we create a path for tomorrow’s children to achieve amazing dreams.
Elementary Principal, SMSA
