Monday, May 12:

From 2:30 – 5:00 pm     A pay-what-you-want car wash in the Parking Lot behind St. Mary’s Church, Warren St.  Get rid of all of that pollen and help our team at the same time!

SMSA Yearbook Sale

The 2015 yearbook is now on sale. Please be sure to reserve your yearbook. They will not be distributed until after the middle school awards ceremony (May 28), but you should start sending in money ASAP to ensure your child gets a book! It is a beautiful yearbook this year, and our 8th graders worked very hard selling ads and designing pages.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The cost of the yearbook is $30. Please send in cash (exact amount if possible), or make a check payable to SMSA. Please send in money in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it and place it in the yearbook mailbox (near main office). If you place money in the box without your child’s name, there will be no way for me to know to whom it belongs. I will keep track of who has ordered yearbooks and will deliver them after the awards ceremony, probably the first week of June.

It is first come, first serve for yearbooks, so don’t wait until the last minute! Reserve your yearbook today, and thank you so much for your support of our 2014-2015 yearbook!

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Megan Marshall via email or phone: x3301.
