Happy Friday, SMCS Families!  


Today brought the end to the 2nd marking period as well as the 1st semester.  How time flies.  Monday starts the 3rd quarter and 2nd semester.  Tuesday, report cards will be issued.  Please take some time to review your child’s report card and if you have any questions, comments, concerns, please contact your child’s teacher or the teacher of that particular subject.  Thank you.
Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week runs Feb 1-5.  Please find the flyer here for further information.  We have included 3 color days with one being a comfy pajama day (modest pants and tops).  All 3 days must follow modesty guidelines according to the dress code in our parent/student handbook. 

Feast of St. Blaise

Blessing of throats will take place in the morning on February 3rd.  The Church recalls a miracle cure associated with St. Blaise and celebrates the blessing of the throats with candles.  St. Blaise was a physician and bishop.
