A year ago, the loss of fall Homecoming activities due to the pandemic was a great disappointment for our Ledgers and for everyone associated with the Springs community. This year, we are grateful and eager to dive into the fun of a traditional Homecoming week, including theme days, special assemblies, a pep rally, dance and a football game – played right across the street from campus on our beautiful new turf field. What a difference a year makes!
Homecoming Week theme days will begin this Thursday, September 30th. Please click here for full information on dress up days and activities.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 9th, as the varsity football team will be returning to the Ledge to play the homecoming game on the new turf field! Please click here for an FAQ on the upcoming game!
With all this said, things change and stay the same. SMSA is still managing COVID-19 and it’s persistent Delta variant, with positive cases continuing to be a reality for many of our families. So while we make plans and look forward with anticipation and hope for Homecoming fun, we also understand that for some in our community, it is not a time to celebrate. Unfortunately, some students will miss Homecoming Week due to pandemic related circumstances. Naturally, we all wish this were not the case.
As we do very well in our Springs community, we shall continue forward in both gratitude and humility, supporting one another, living proud Ledger traditions, and building positive community relationships even when circumstances may challenge our access to one another, our expectations, goodwill or patience.
Thanks for staying together as a community, for pitching in to make both difficult days and special events so memorable. Above all else, thanks for always partnering to support and care for our students in so many varied and beautiful ways. Along with our faculty and staff, parents make SMSA a very special home for our Ledgers.
Our Lady of the Ledge, pray for us!
Principal, High School
