Big picture

Dear SMMS Family,

Welcome to the 2019-20 Maverick School Year! It is a humbling privilege to serve as your Principal as SMMS celebrates over 75 years of Catholic education. This school year, we honor our storied tradition of forming well-rounded, dynamic students ready to reach college and heaven.

Further, we eye the future as we strive to be even better as a Catholic school with an enhanced 1:1 Chromebook Program, a growing Dual Language Program, a STEM and Nature-Based Outdoor Learning Program, and strong partnerships with Boston College, University of Notre Dame, Our Lady of The Lake University, University of the Incarnate Word, and University of Texas San Antonio. Most importantly, we strive to live out our mission to empower students and our community to witness the Gospel and grow in excellence through faith, academics and service.

Catholic education succeeds so spectacularly because it is uniquely able to educate the whole child. At SMMS, our students are active participants in this comprehensive education. Similarly, it is my sincere hope that, whether you are a parent, a grandparent, a teacher, a volunteer, a donor, a parishioner, or simply someone who cares about others, you will become an active participant in the education of the children of SMMS.

Our patroness, Saint Mary Magdalen, stood at the foot of the cross, prayed as Christ was in the tomb, and was the first recorded witness of the Resurrection. We ask for her prayers and yours as we seek to each day witness the promise of the Resurrection.
