The SMSA Parent Connectors is a group of dedicated parents, committed to supporting our System by welcoming all families, tenured and new, to be a part of the fabric of our school.

New family outreach – calls/emails to welcome new families to our System
New Family/Freshmen Picnic – held in August each year to connect new students with their “buddies” for the year and new families with tenured families
Trunk-or-Treat – Halloween event held in the parking lof of SMSA
LedgerExpress – Celebration of the Christmas Season around the of “Polar Express” with games, movies and activities.
Winter Carnival – Held in winter of each year to have some fund and shake off “cabin fever”
Teacher & Staff Appreciation – on-going events and activities that celebrate and acknowledge our dedicated and talented staff members
Engaging our Grandparents
Grandparents Club The Grandparents Club of St. Mary’s Springs Academy provides support and services to further the Mission of the Academy as a Catholic educational system. Grandparents serve as an additional support system in academic, spiritual, social and personal growth and development by involvement in the daily lives of children who attend St. Mary’s Springs Academy. The Grandparents Club, established in 2014, provides an opportunity for grandparents (or honorary grandparents), near or far, to be connected to SMSA school life. Grandparents can provide support by contributing their time, talents, and resources to benefit the children attending SMSA. Opportunities are available to help with events, in the classrooms or campuses, special projects, and programs. We welcome all grandparents to stay informed and be involved as much as possible.
Each Spring, SMSA celebrates our grandparents and “grand-friends” on a special day on our campus including art projects, sweets and treats, prayer, and special time with their loved ones. This is a tradition that both student and grandparents have come to cherish.
