Athletic Policy

St. Margaret is a Catholic School with a comprehensive Athletic Program. The purpose of the Athletic Program is to provide an opportunity to advance the Gospel mission of Catholic education. The successful integration of the Gospel message into the SMCS Athletic Program will produce individuals who are faith-filled, have respect for others, value human life and are willing to sacrifice for those in need.

Field Trips

Field trips are an extension of the classroom and are allowed for all grades. The field trips vary annually depending on the curriculum and resources that are available. In the event that are students are not able to visit a site we welcome representatives to come and bring the field trips to us!

Live Differently 
  • Every Friday 11:32-11:55 we will take time to live differently, because “The one who has hope lives differently.”
  • We have hope in Jesus. We have hope in HIS mercy, HIS help, and HIS healing message that our happiness is in serving Him and serving others.
  • In order to accomplish this we have to work together. We need to take time to make our school a place that helps us follow Jesus by encouraging one another and filling all our senses with HIS truth, HIS goodness, and HIS joy. 
  • Jesus’ message [kerygma] = We are made for life with God. We as a human community experience suffering because, as a community, we turned away from that life with Him. But Jesus traced a road to us, and no matter where we are, there is a road back to God with Jesus. We can be forgiven, healed, return to the Divine Family, rejoice in God, and live in eternal love.
