Daring Greatly in Faith, Academics, & Service for SMCS

I like you just the way you are.

Have you tried saying that to yourself in the mirror? I dare you to do it tonight and tomorrow morning.

Remember on Tuesday we are celebrating the Feast Day of St. Monica. Please make sure your students know who she is and what she means for our school (model of perseverance). If your class would like to do a presentation about her after Mass on Tuesday, please let me know!

Thank you all for a beautiful first full week. Here we go into our first real all-day week. You got this.
