SAVE THE DATES FOR THE SMM DANCE TEAM TRYOUTS AND CAMP
SMM Launched NASA Astro Camp
St. Margaret Mary School launched its first NASA Astro Camp in mid-January as a Community Partner with NASA Education Specialists from Stennis Space Center. Lisa Ramirez was trained as our facilitator and will use her weekly K-7 class time to introduce NASA, past and present, and complete several grade appropriate design, engineering, rocketry and coding projects. Our Junior and Senior Coding and Robotics Teams will also be using the NASA Astro Camp resources and challenges. Our first project is the Mission Patch activity that requires all students to imagine their own mission and collaborate on their crew’s mission patch graphic design.
Lisa has also been working with Wendy Conarro on available STEM resources and mentoring opportunities through the Northshore STEM Coalition, attending events at Southeastern University and Northshore Technical Community College.
THE PTO WANTS YOU!

WSMM Morning Show
Executive Director, Gay Knock (Coach Gay), works with the seventh grade class to present the morning show which is broadcast throughout the campus...and now the world! Students lead the morning prayer and pledge of allegiance, share weather and sports information, and recognize those who are on the prayer list, celebrating birthdays, or being recognized for special achievements at the school.
Please Join Us in the Morning
The WSMM Morning Show is live at 8:10 am, but can be viewed later on our You Tube Channel. The show is produced by our fabulous 7th graders. They host, direct, and operate the camera every Monday through Thursday morning.
We pray for our family and friends and say the Pledge of Allegiance together. We celebrate students' birthdays and recognize Students of the Month and other students who have received special awards. We also make announcements of upcoming SMM events, meetings and activities and give sports updates.
