Our Community

Through hosting a variety of community events we strengthen the relationship and continuity between the child, the school and the home.

All our special events involve parents and children in a community of relationship, learning, sharing and our partnership with parents and the wider community provide many highlights throughout the school year.

"The SMDPS community is one that cares deeply for each child. We are an inclusive community where we celebrate the child as capable and competent. Parents, families and friends are ever present within our classrooms, children development connections with the wider community through this involvement. It is a small school community, where families are welcomed and included in their child's education. As a leader in the school, it is wonderful to be able to connect personally with each family." ~ Ben Catalano, Assistant Principal Religious Identity and Mission
