Dear Parents and Guardians,


As I look out the window, I see the autumn season is coming into full bloom. The colors paint in my mind and help me see our artistic, creative and amazing God. The autumn leaves also remind me that the first quarter of school is coming to a close. Our quarter ends on Friday, October 30th. Report cards will be electronic again this year through Skyward. We look forward to seeing your e-signature.


Halloween Parties

On Friday, October 30th, we will be hosting classroom Halloween parties. Please send your child in their costume. We’ll be starting our day with learning and conclude with controlled parties starting at 10:30 a.m. Please look for more information about classroom parties from the classroom teachers in the coming days and weeks.


Early Release

Students will be dismissed at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 30th for an early release.


Thank you for our partnership and spirit of family and community. Your children are rock stars on the Ledge. I’m so proud of them as a collective whole for doing their part in keeping everyone safe at school. 


Thank you for sharing the educational journey with us. Together we are growing global leaders for tomorrow.


God Bless,

Steve Kelnhofer

After reevaluating our current pandemic, it is in the best interest of our SMSA families that our annual Trunk or Treat event will not be held this year. We are very sad as we know this event is loved by our children and always a very well attended event.
