From the Office of Stacey Akey - System President

It is my sincere hope that you are equally invigorated by the recent announcement to reorganize our academic model to enhance student development and improve learning outcomes. The reconfiguration of SMSA to an Elementary (PreK-8) / High School (9-12) model took effect this academic year and aligns with best practices of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Impact on you should be minimal, and I ask for your support and patience as we move through the coming months to make the necessary updates on signage, website, communications, etc. 


If you are not familiar, please reference the eLedger from Thursday, August 29, 2019 by clicking here.  Then scroll down to Reorganization of the Academic Model, in my opening message.


In your service, 

Stacey Akey

Big News - You can now purchase Scrip online with Credit Cards!

There is a new way to pay for your Scrip online!  In addition to linking a bank account and using PrestoPay, you can choose the option to pay for gift cards with a credit card. Visa and Mastercard are accepted and the rebate is the same any way you pay. A 2.6% fee is added to your order total each time you pay with a credit card, but that fee is easily offset by the rebates you earn! You will also have instant access to eGift cards and reload.


Don’t delay – Shop today!
