Elves R Us - November 26th - 29th

Elves R Us began in 1992 at St. Mary’s Middle School on Merrill Avenue.  It was established and is still managed by our 8th grade students.  The event invites elementary students to go shop for gifts to give their family and friends.  An envelope was sent home in your child/children’s backpack. Your child/children will bring that envelope with them to the event as 8th grade students help them pick out the perfect gift.  Prices range from $0.50-$6.00.


The event this year will be held on Monday, November 26 – Thursday, November 29, 2018.


All profits made will be used to make a donation to a charity chosen by the 8th grade class and to fund their class trip.

A Video Reflection from Fr. Mike Schmitz

If we put on a mask when we come to God in prayer, how can he love that fake version of us? In this week’s video from Fr. Mike, he challenges you to come before God as your true and genuine self. The love you will encounter by doing this one simple act, no matter how vulnerable it may make you feel, will be astounding.


Do You Present Your True Self to Others?

Use Scrip for your Christmas shopping

Christmas is less than 2 months away, can you believe it!?


Make Christmas shopping easier by giving gift-cards, purchased from the Scrip Office, as gifts to your family, friends and co-workers.  A portion of the purchase price is returned to you as a rebate.  Part of that rebate is then added to your SCRIP account and used to offset your tuition costs at SMSA or any tuition-based school.  The remaining rebates are then used to help offset the operating costs of the System.


Remember, if we don’t have what you are looking for in inventory, please ask.  We may be able to place a special order for you! 


Give the gift of Scrip and have more time to focus on the true meaning of Christmas!
