Food Friday Begins October 3rd…. Please Help!

There is a long standing tradition here at SMSA.  Our students and families are asked to bring in canned good item(s) to their homeroom class during the week and place it in the classroom food basket.  Friday’s we attend Mass at St. Mary’s Church and our Middle School students transport our giving effort to Church on that day.  Please consider helping this great cause….  Last year was a record braking year.  We collected 6954 items for  those in need!
