During Catholic Schools Week, our students participated in Eucharistic Procession. This activity is a beautiful expression of our love for Jesus and reminds us of our spiritual journey toward eternal life with God. We are celebrating all the reasons why being at a Catholic School is so special. "SMA has soul. You feel it the minute you walk in the door. It emanates from the chapel in the middle of the school, thrives in the faculty and staff and lives in the students. As a parent of students there, this is the type of faith-based environment I want my children to learn and thrive in." - Rob Rastorfer, SMA Parent
Celebrate Catholic Schools Week with our Annual Fun Night including Dodgeball for Diapers and Mr. Guardian Contest! Start the evening off with our Chipotle fundraiser which can be carried into the Commons area before the festivities kick off. It's sure to be a good time!

What a way to kick off Catholic Schools Week! Thank you to The Guard, SMA Booster Club, for treating our students and staff to a Chris Cakes pancake lunch! "Of all the spirit weeks that happens in a school, Catholic Schools week is by far my favorite week! One of the best gifts my parents gave me and my siblings was the sacrifice to send us to Catholic schools. Being challenged academically while growing stronger in my Catholic faith, is something that I do not take for granted." – Ms. Kroening, Principal #CSW23 #CatholicEducation #walktogether
