All Saints Day

All Saints Day will be celebrated on All Souls Day, Monday, November 2nd. Students are asked to dress as their favorite Saint. They may stay dressed as a Saint for the entire day or bring in their school uniform to change into later in the day. After Mass, classes will process to the cemetery to pray for the souls buried there. Parents are welcome to process too. Please maintain a social distance of 6 feet from anyone not living in your residence and wear a mask.

All Saints Day parties will be held after lunch on this day. Parents are again welcomed to help with the planning, but will not be permitted in the building. Look to homework notebooks and assignments coming from the classroom teachers for All Saints Day projects your son/daughter will be working on.

Faith Connection

The family that prays together stays together! This is not just a popular saying! If you don’t have a regular family prayer time, add it to your schedule. Prayer – spending time talking to God – is the most important gift we can give to ourselves and our children. If you’re looking for a new way to pray, consider meditating on the life of Jesus with Mary in the Rosary. Not sure how to start? Simply google “how to pray the Rosary” and begin!

Blessed is She

Wash your hands

The SMS students have been learning about the importance of washing their hands properly. As they wash, they have been praying “Hail Marys” and learning about the Rosary. As you wash your hands throughout the day, consider offering a “Hail Mary” for the students and staff at SMS!
