Message from the P3 - Grade 5 Principal, Steven Kelnhofer

Dear Parents,


Thank you for being part of our SMSA family.  I hope you and your family are having a great start to your school experience this year at SMSA!


Volunteer Opportunities:

You should have or will be receiving a communication in your child/children’s backpack(s) with an opportunity to volunteer this school year for a variety of events.  This is a great way to get involved and get to know other parents in our SMSA family.


You can also visit our website by clicking here to view other volunteer opportunities such as help at recess, lunchroom duty and classroom parents helpers.

I’m looking forward to seeing new faces at our upcoming events!  Like the old adage says, “It takes a village to raise a child”.


Thank you for being an active member in our SMSA village.  

God Bless,

God Bless, Mr. Kelnhofer

Before/After School Care News

Dear Parents,

Please remember to pick up a calendar to fill out and turn back in for when your child/children will be using after school care.  


Peanut free snacks are allowed in after school care.  Please provide a snack via backpack day to day or provide a bin for a long duration that we will house for the students younger than 1st grade.  


Students in 1st grade or below will be either on the lower playground or in the Child Care Center.  


Students grades 2nd – 5th can bring a snack day to day or keep a snack bin by their cubby or locker.  These students will be in the library or on the upper playground.

Thank you for all your help getting the year going.
