May Crowning Mass will be held on Friday, May 5th at 9:15 a.m. Our 7th grade class has requested that each SMS student bring a flower that will be added to a bouquet on the morning of Mass.  The entire student body will be processing down to Church in order of grade level, and will be processing into Church in the same fashion as part of the beginning of mass.  For any parents who plan to attend the May Crowning mass, please wait for all of the students to complete the procession into Church until sitting with your child.  You may wait in the Narthex until the procession is complete, or you may be seated on the Mary statue side of the altar or in the Day Chapel. 

A reminder about grades in Specials classes: Remember that these grades are based on a different scale than students’ academic classes, and they do not go towards Academic Honor Roll.  The Specials grading scale is as follows: “E” (Excellent)=92-100, “G” (Good)=84-91.5, “S” (Satisfactory)=76-83.5, “NI” (Needs Improvement)= 68-75.5, “U” (Unsatisfactory)= below 67.5.
