NHS Peer Tutoring - Now Available

Members of the SMSA National Honor Society chapter will once again be offering peer tutoring to any SMSA student. Tutoring will take place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings starting at 7:00 a.m. in room 3037 in the high school wing. In addition, if grades 6 – 8 are looking for peer tutoring during their study hall times, students should have their teacher contact, Mr. Thompson, so that an NHS student with the same study hall can be matched up with them. 


After school tutoring can also be made available through Mr. Thompson.

Conquering College Costs - October 30th

Are you interested in finding the right college at the right price? Does the cost of college keep you awake at night? What is a 529 Plan?


Please attend an important evening with recognized experts who can answer these questions and more on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Student Commons (cafeteria).  Financial aid officers from Mount Mary University, Marquette University, Marian University, and Alverno College will be here to talk about how to make college more affordable and accessible while dispelling common misperceptions about the costs and benefits of earning a college degree.

Nurse News

Thank you - A Message from Katie Hellmer

My last day as the SMSA school nurse is approaching quickly and I wanted to send a thank you to all of the families I have worked with during my time here. It has been a pleasure working with your children. All of the support you and SMSA have given me has not gone unnoticed. I am so grateful SMSA took a chance and hired me as the first school nurse! 


Thank you for supporting me along the way!
