Letter from Kasey Smith, 6-12 Student Life Director

January Ledger Leaders

Beginning in January, I asked our 6-12 teachers  to submit students for recognition as a “Student of the Month” or what we will call our “Ledger Leaders.”  Our teachers were looking for students who continually demonstrate our core values…Faith, Learning, Leadership, Respect, Responsibility and Community.  The categories for recognition from the middle school are 6th grade, 7th grade and 8th grade.  The four categories for high school were determined by subject groupings: 1) English/Foreign Language, 2) Math/Science/Business, 3) Art/Music/Phy. Ed. and 4) Social Studies/Theology.  

Congratulations to the students chosen as the January 2018 Ledger Leaders!!  John Coon (6th Grade), Sydney Pitz (7th Grade), Isabelle Coon (8th Grade), Lillian Wahl (English/Foreign Language), Victoria Gaertig (Math/Science/Business), Donovan Ahern (Art/Music/Phy. Ed.), and Robert Miller (Social Studies/Theology).

I personally would like to congratulate and say THANK YOU to these students for the impact they have on the SMSA community and for the efforts they make to lead by example!

6-12 Director of Student Life

Student Planners
We are halfway through the year, this is the time when students begin losing their planner or their planner begins to fall apart. Please check to see if your child/children has/have a planner, and if it is still usable. Students must have their planner to leave the room for any reason during instruction, to enter a room if they are late to class/school, and most importantly, to record their assignments.

If your child has lost the planner or the planner has fallen apart, replacement planners may be purchased at the North Office.
