Mrs. Pierce's Principal Message

Let’s celebrate Catholic Schools! I stop to thank God for the wonderful Catholic education I received. It is the seeds of many great teachers, parishioners, community mentors, and my parents that have each had a special part in forming me to be God’s servant. I am so grateful for each one of them, but also for the wonderful SMG families who continue to bless me and the students as we grow disciples. Being able to touch the life of a child and the formation of his/her soul is a huge responsibility but with many blessings! I am so honored to be the principal at SMG and have a part in this with your child.

Catholic education is a wonderful gift parents/grandparents/and sponsors give their children. It provides each child with the spiritual foundation and guidance on a daily basis. It is a beautiful blessing to be able to pray throughout our day together, work in community as we learn and appreciate all God gives us, and serve one another as Christ served.

Parents, Grandparents, and Guardians, I thank you for the many sacrifices you endure for your children to come to SMG. May God bless you and have a wonderful week! I hope to see you around our campus as we thank God and celebrate Catholic Schools. Invite your friends and family to check out SMG for their child.

I also thank you for your continued support as we further our mission of academic excellence, faith formation, and compassionate service.

Christ’s blessings,

Mrs. Pierce
