SMGCS Weekly SMORE
Week of September 4th - 8th
Thank you for the precious gifts.
Mrs. Pierce's Principal Message
My fellow Trojans,
It is hard to believe we have been in school for one month. Time flies when we are having fun! This week, band begins on Tuesday, and on Saturday volleyball games will commence. Go Trojans!
I thank you for your patience with us regarding the Renweb service. The provider has had difficulty, and they hope to have it working soon. Unfortunately the problem has prevented teachers from entering grades in the online grade book program. The teachers have been keeping a handwritten report of grades for your student. If your child is having academic difficulties, the teachers will be sending out a notice.
Unfortunately with a heavy heart, Ms. Alvarez will not be able to continue as our librarian. Please pray for her and her family during this difficult time. However, please welcome Mrs. Peña to our SMG family. She will be our new library manager and is eager to share her passion for books and media.
The gospel today reminds us that we have been anointed with chrism at our baptism to serve others, especially to those who are poor. We are the missionaries to bring hope and comfort to those who go without. Our prayers can release those who are persecuted and troubled. We are encouraged to bring the light of Christ to others through service. I am so proud of our National Junior Honor Society Members who planned and coordinated a bake sale to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. They truly embody the spirit of service to others. Please join me in praying for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston said, "I think we have to wake up Jesus in the boat! ... Pray real hard!"
Have a blessed week!

Afternoon Carline Procedures
Please remember to have your green cards visible on your dash, so that the teachers can correctly call your student's name. Please see the attached afternoon carline map.
Car Line Tips
Do not go around a parked car in any carline, morning or afternoon. It is not safe as our kids may be walking or standing where you can not see them.
Please have your students exit and enter on the passenger side of the vehicle to ensure safety and proper visibility at all times.
