From the Office of Steve Kelnhofer, P3 - 5th Grade Principal

News from the South Hall

Dear Parents,

The third quarter has arrived along with Catholic Schools Week.  We will be celebrating starting on Sunday, January, 27th, 2019.  SMSA families are encouraged to wear their Ledger blue to the 10:15 Mass at Holy Family Catholic Church (271 Fourth Street Way). We will have themed dress up days throughout the week along with lots of fun activities to help us celebrate our Catholic school.  Look for a flyer in the coming days to guide you in preparing for our special week ahead.


Second Quarter Conclusion
The second quarter has come to a conclusion.  Look for online report cards to be ready for viewing on Friday, January 25, 2019.  Please remember to electronically sign your child’s report card through Skyward.


Morning Drop Off
Please remember the hug and go lane is the drop off zone.  The middle parking lot lane is not meant for parking and dropping your children off.

Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe and respecting other drivers during morning drop off.


Also, please remember to drive with caution, reduce your rate of speed and be cell phone free in our drop off area.  All three actions will lead to a safe area for children.


Thank you for your help!

God Bless,
Steven Kelnhofer
