Enrollment forms and tuition information for 2015-16 will be sent home on Friday, March 6.  Additional copies of the forms will be available on the school website under downloads.  The application fee this year is the same as in the past; $225 (if paid by March 31, $250 per child until April 1, $300 per child after June 1).

CEF scholarship applications will go home before spring break. CEF has suggested to its member schools that we enlist the services of a third party to make recommendations for financial assistance based on the family’s reported income.  We will partner with Smart Tuition Aid (a branch of Smart Tuition) for this service.  Their recommendations will weigh heavily into the amount of financial assistance that is granted to each family.

Please contact Heather Huscher at 235.2188 with any questions or concerns.  We're looking forward to another great school year!

Enchiladas - Let's Get Rolling! PDF Print E-mail

You may have heard that we have pre-sold over 10,000 enchiladas!!  That is a record!! We have enough supplies to make well over 12,000 so we will have some extra. If you want to order, please drop your order form and payment by the church office.  We completed the prep work this past weekend.  Thank you to all that braved the weather to help on Saturday!

Here is the agenda for this week:

Thursday, 3/5 we will be setting up for rolling weekend.  We will start around 5:30 PM. We will also need to shred the cheese that is going to be used. This will take about 3 hours tops to get done. I need strong-backed folks that can help bring things down from the storage in the loft.

Rolling begins Friday at 8:00 AM. We will clean up and be out of there by 10:00 PM because we will start again Saturday morning at 8:00 AM and continue until we are done!

If you haven’t signed up to help that is OK. You can stop by at your convenience – no matter how much time you have!! We need at least 30 people at all times! There won’t be any standing around & waiting like there is with prep work. J

Children are welcome. However, please bring an activity that will keep them occupied. They cannot be running around where we are rolling or in the kitchen because of the hot grease and also because we are preparing food J There are jobs for children that are old enough to help.

Thank you all for your continued support of this project!  It is a lot of work but we make it a lot of fun too!!  Mr. Joe will have his boom box and has some great music lined up for us!

Celebrate your loved ones with books! PDF Print E-mail

SMCS would like to invite you to celebrate your child or remember a loved one with a gift to the school library in the form of a new book in their honor or memory.  We currently have several books that have been donated in memory of loved ones and on the inside cover, those books are identified as a special gift in memory of someone and include the donor’s name. 

The idea came to us to also celebrate birthdays this way as well.  If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with a special book that can be shared by their friends in the library, we encourage you to select a book they would enjoy and send it to the school office for Mrs. Otting to prepare for circulation in the school library.  Please do not worry about duplicates because chances are if it is a new book we may not have it and if it is a classic, we likely could use a new copy! 

On a separate sheet of paper, please write the name, dates, donor, etc. and include it with the book to assist us in accurately documenting the gift.  Feel free to write your own personal note inside the book cover if you would like.

Thank you for your consideration of this special book project.
