COVID-19 Updates

A new regional COVID-19 testing site has opened in Oshkosh. The community testing site is available to any Wisconsin resident, five years of age and older.

COVID-19 Screener

SMCS has hired a COVID-19 screener. This person will be the main contact for SMCS parents to report symptoms and act as liaison with the City of Menasha and Winnebago County Health Departments to report and track cases. They will work closely with administrative assistants and principals to accurately record attendance, tracking of cases, and return to school for students.


  • Please call your school office with any absences.
  • Please call 920-716-7139 or email studentsafety@smcatholicschools.org to report symptoms, concerns, positive cases, exposures, etc.

Zephyrs Gold

It is kick-off time for our 2020-21 Zephyrs Gold! The proceeds from Zephyrs Gold raffle sales help to fund our operational costs, which include staffing, technology, and maintaining clean and safe facilities, while allowing you to offset your annual $200 family fundraising fee (grades K-12). Purchase or sell eight raffle tickets for $25 each and you have met your commitment!


Zephyrs Gold raffle winners will be drawn prior to four of our student co-curricular events throughout the school year. Payouts range from $500 to $2,500 with eight opportunities to win cold hard cash!

Parent Letter/Order Form

Thank you to everyone who attended Zephyrs Connect!

The weather held out for our 195 runners in our 7th annual Zephyrs Connect run/walk. This year we broke the $100,000 mark for funds raised over the life of the event. Funds help support co-curricular activities, keep tuition affordable and enhance our school campus facilities. Our parishes also receive a piece of these funds! Thank you to our organizers, supporters, and participants... We will see you next year!

Zephyrs Fields

Due to projected inclement weather, we regrettably canceled our Zephyrs Fields Grand Opening scheduled for 8/28/2020. While the event will not be rescheduled, we will look for other ways to celebrate the gift of our beautiful new track and field.

Fall Athletics

Please see the statement from Big East Conference regarding fall sports. SMCS is working on being able to live stream home events due to spectator limitations so all can enjoy watching our Zephyrs compete!
