High School Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conferences – March 9th

All parents and guardians of high school students are invited to the Ledge next Wednesday, March 9th from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. for Parent/Guardian-Teacher Conferences.  While attendance at conferences is not a requirement, SMSA strongly recommends that one parent for every student make this evening a priority.  


There is no need to schedule an appointment in advance.  Parents may come to visit with any teachers between 4:00 to 6:30 p.m.  Strengthening the partnership between home and school is a priority for SMSA.  Positive dialogue and good relationships between teachers and parents is such an important element to student success.  We hope to see a robust turn-out of parents/guardians on Wednesday, March 9th. Our teachers enjoy sharing the good news about what Ledgers are doing in the classroom with you.   


Lent on the Ledge

The liturgical season of Lent is upon us again. We encounter the  season of Lent as a time of penance, fasting and almsgiving.  Christians reflect on opportunities to be more intentional about how their faith in the living God informs their choices and actions in a world so in need of mercy, love, healing and redemption.  It has been said that the virtue of any community or culture can be measured by how the most vulnerable are treated.  Certainly the Gospel message supports this idea.  


We treasure our Catholic identity and mission at Springs.  It informs all our strategies.  We do our best to embrace the opportunities we have as a learning community to become more reflective and conscious.  As students develop deeper awareness of the mystery of the Incarnation and the Good News of the Gospel we see them grow in curiosity and character.   Our students learn that through Jesus, God entered into solidarity with people of the ancient world, and with all people of all ages – especially those who suffer and are lost in a challenging, chaotic and often violent society.  


This Lent, we will continue to turn our prayers and attention toward those who suffer – in our own school – in the broader community – and across the World in places like Ukraine, disrupted by the horror of war.  May God continue to help Ledgers grow in awareness of the needs of others.  During Lent, may our students embrace ways of helping others who are more needy than themselves.  May empathy, virtue and love – especially for the least among us – be what defines our lives as Ledgers and Christians. 


Our Lady of the Ledge, pray for us!

Eamonn O’Keeffe Principal, High School
