I GET A KICK OUT OF PLAYING SOCCER

Coach Matt would like to know if any students in 5th through 7th grade have an interest in having a school soccer team. It will be a coed team. We do not have enough students to have separate boys and girls teams. We had a coed team for the last few years before COVID paused soccer. We were extremely successful on the field - won most of our games.


Please complete this form if your child is interested in playing school soccer: https://forms.gle/DHGYoRUfbDEBMvwn6


There will be a limited number of games since most schools do not have a coed team. AND we coaches. If you are interested in coaching or assisting with coaching, please contact Coach Matt at marnold@saintmm.org. You'll get a kick out of it.

SAVE THE DATE FOR THIS FUN EVENT

Registration forms were sent home this week. You may pick up one from the school office if needed.

ANNUAL THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

The Food Drive is a parish/school group service project in which we team with the Good Sams ministry at St. Luke’s to provide meals for the hungry and needy in our community. Our SMM school families donate food items assigned by homerooms. The Mission Club will collect items from homerooms and the High School Youth Group will sort the items and place in boxes. Donations from SMM provide a box of several meals for 25 families in our community. We will collect donations from November 8 - 17.


Please see the graphic below for homeroom assignments. Thank you for your generosity.
