All was very quiet this early morning here at SMSA until the children returned from Mass and discovered St. Nicholas had visited during their absence. Goodies and excitement abound!
We are really lucky to have such talent under our roof. Mrs. Ilowiecki, our SMSA Enrollment Director, is offering a wonderful after school cooking class for aspiring St. Mary’s chefs. Pictured here are 3rd graders; Martha Creede, Kathrine Lieberth, Lily Mahoney, 4th graders; Luke Skellie, Wyatt Moore and 5th grade; Lauren Trackey. Bon appetit!
SMSA held it’s annual Thanksgiving clothing collection and with the help of our 8th graders loaded the North Country Ministries truck just this morning. We extend our thanks to all our families who helped make this clothing drive a great success.
SMSA is offering a new fundraising opportunity…the SCRIP program. We will be selling gift cards from everyday retailers (LL Bean, Target, ITunes, Bath and Body, Panera, just to name a few) and can be purchased right from school! (the retail stores donate a percentage of their profit back to SMSA). Best part is you can use these gift cards for everyday shopping or to give to that special someone for the perfect Christmas gift. If you click on the pictures below you will see a listing of all the offerings, just fill out the forms and return them to school with payment. This program will be offered all school year! If you have any questions please feel free to call Amber Del Signore at 792-4454 or Deana White at 792-3178. Happy shopping!
