Greetings from the Principal
Dear SMCS families,
This month has been filled with many exciting concerts, celebrations, and field trips - what a wonderful way to celebrate all the hard work that has been accomplished this year. As we approach the end of the school year, I want to extend my gratitude to all of you for your support throughout my first year as elementary principal. It has been a true blessing to get to know many of you and to work with your amazing children. I appreciate our SMCS parents very much and appreciate all you do for our schools from volunteering in school, sponsoring events, spoiling our staff with treats...the list could go on and on! Thank you for all you do to make our schools successful, enjoyable, amazing places to learn and work! I look forward to continuing to partner with you as we remain “United in Faith, Hope, and Love.”
Mrs. Anna Cihlar
SMCS Elementary Principal
