As the autumn weather arrives in Wisconsin, those pesky mosquitoes have decided to join in the fun. Students have been spotted with bites from mosquitoes as they are enjoying the outdoors. Teachers will be or have sent out a message explaining what you can do before sending your child/children to school to help defend against the mosquitoes. Unfortunately, we can’t spray or apply repellent here at school because of safety concerns and allergies. However, you may spray or apply repellent before your child/children arrive to school. Teachers will also mention other methods such as dryer sheets in pockets and repellent bracelets to repel mosquitoes. Pants and long sleeve shirts may help out as well acting as a skin barrier.
Band and Choir Update for Fifth Grade
Music is an important subject and valued here at SMSA as part of our students educational experience. I know our eager students want to get to practicing and learning new skills with their voice and/or an instrument. We are currently going through a hiring process with hopes to find a new team member very soon to join our outstanding music department. Until a hire is complete, we are working internally to problem solve and find ways to have students experience music SMSA is accustomed too.
Fifth Grade Chapel Time
Our fifth grade parents had the opportunity to experience our first week of Chapel Time with their child/children. It appeared to be a wonderful experience with parents and children having a faith moment in the chapel. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to enjoy this time with your child/children.
Hug and Go
Thank you for using the Hug and Go lanes effectively as we are getting into the swing of traffic flow this school year. Parents have been pulling as far forward as they can to allow space for parking behind them and we thank you for that. This cooperation helps to create a beautiful flow of traffic that is safe and efficient.
God Bless, Mr. Kelnhofer
