Happy Friday, SMCS Families! 

Friendly reminder to all, Monday, Feb 22nd SMCS is closed for professional development. 

Tuesday, March 23rd, the third progress report will be issued.

Next Friday, March 26, is color day.  Please send in a non-perishable food item with your child in lieu of a monetary donation to dress out of the school uniform; this is to make up for the non-perishable food drive we missed from the snow day.  The 26th is also our make-up popcorn day that we missed due to the snow day.

Looking for opportunities to sell raffle tickets?  Please see the information below in red.

Stations of the Cross begin today!  Each Friday during Lent: 5:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Parish and 6:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Parish.  

Hope you enjoy the long weekend!

God bless,

Hedy

2021 Jackpot Raffle 
Here is the 2021 Jackpot Raffle incentive to sell more tickets!  Let’s sell all the tickets to make for a successful fundraiser once more for our school.  If you have sold your tickets and need more, please contact the office. 

As you sell your tickets, please consider turning them in along with checks/cash.  There is a bin labeled “office” in the south entrance (playground side).  When you are buzzed in, just indicate you are dropping off tickets and funds, then place them in the bin.  Someone from the office will remove them straight away.  Thank you. 

Tickets may be sold after Mass at various parishes!  Please find the list of places and times to sign-up to sell.  You do not have to be Catholic to sell after a Mass!
