Homecoming week is underway. It’s an exciting time for everyone associated with SMSA. From the big game on our new turf on October 9th to all the fun activities and dress up days. Please click here to support the events and enter into the opportunity to participate in all the fun and celebrations of our SMSA community.
Parent teacher conferences will be held on October 13th and 14th, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.. We will be offering virtual and in person conferences. Please look for communication coming out soon regarding signing up for a conference time through Skyward. SMSA is excited to build partnerships with each and everyone of you through the parent/teacher conference experience. It’s a valuable experience to build relationships from P3 – grade 8. Looking forward to seeing you on campus.
Please help us as you wait to pick up your child(ren) at the end of the school day by being thoughtful of the back playground and school is still in session. Classes may be using the back playground to end their day. Classes inside the windows are engaged in learning as well. We ask you to partner with us and keep these areas clear until the end of the school day. Thank you for supporting SMSA and keeping our school areas safe and the learning moving until the end of the day. I appreciate our partnership.
Thank you for your continued partnership with SMSA . Together we will create a path for tomorrow’s children to achieve amazing dreams.
Elementary Principal, SMSA

Standards Based Grading
As I have mentioned in previous eLedgers, St. Mary’s Spring Academy is excited to introduce Standards Based Grading in grades kindergarten through third grade for the 2021-22 school year! Standards Based Grading is a best practice initiative the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is leading all of its schools towards implementing in the coming school year.
The objective of the video series is to educate parents in short videos to unpack Standard Based Grading. The series intends to deliver an education and mindshift to understand Standards Based Grading, why Standards Based Grading is best practice, and how Standards Based Grading functions with the parent and teacher supporting the student’s journey.
