Dear Parents and Guardians,


Our first quarter ends on Friday, October 30th. Did you know Skyward offers the ability for an app for your phone? Within this app, you can set up weekly reports about your child’s grades and attendance. One can view learning and report cards present and past. We will be asking parents/guardians to electronically sign report cards through Skyward. We look forward to seeing your e-signature after Friday, October 30, 2020. Directions will be provided in next week’s eLedger. Thank you for your continued partnership in educating children.

Dress Code Reminders

As October comes to a close, school shorts must be packed away until spring. Friday, October 30th is the last day students may wear shorts to school.


Students are expected to dress appropriately for a Catholic school environment.  Any clothing that interferes with or disrupts the educational environment is unacceptable.  Clothing should fit properly, be neat, clean and conform to standards of safety, good taste and decency.


Parents/guardians have the responsibility of ensuring that their student(s) report to school appropriately dressed, clean and neat in appearance.  To review approved school uniform selections, go to the Lands’ End website by clicking here.  Use school code, 900157314. Any item available to order on the SMSA dedicated Lands’ End website is dress code approved. This includes school uniform girls iron knee leggings for girls until 5th grade. Extended sizing options are available. Uniforms are optional for half-day P3 and K4 students.


Thank you for your partnership in our community. Thank you for sharing the educational journey with us. Together, we are growing global leaders for tomorrow.


God Bless,
