It's All in the Family

We believe that parents are the foremost

educators of their children

Faculty members are available to meet with parents who have questions or concerns, and informal activities provide family members with opportunities to see the school from the inside. 

Many of our parents and grandparents:

  • Chaperone Field Trips
  • Create Enrichment Activities
  • Organize Social Events
  • Assist our Sports Teams
  • Serve on our School Board

Communication between school and home is one of the highest priorities of the SMSA staff. Teachers frequently send home to parents notices regarding classroom activities, field trips and tests.
