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

ELA Creations

In ELA, we have been practicing our poetic skills by constructing poems that answer the question Who Am I? We have also created paper book quilts that show the characters, settings, and events from the books we choose to read.

As a wrap up to Catholic Schools Week, our Soul’s Up surfboards remind us of our constant connection to God.

St. Therese Novena
This week, the 7th Grade is meeting in the Chapel at 7:55 each morning to recite the St. Therese Novena. A novena is a nine day prayer asking for the intercession of a certain Saint. If our goal is Heaven, then there is no better person to mimic in our life than the Little Flower. St. Therese – Pray for us!
