Staying Connected to St. Margaret's School


Our 97th school year started on August 30 with a communion service at St. John's.

We are excited to have 110 girls enrolled, 31 day students and 79 boarding students, representing 14 countries, including girls from across the United States.

Classes have begun, tryouts for athletic teams are underway, the Treble Choir sounds beautiful, and SMS is back in action!

On behalf of the entire SMS family, I hope you had a wonderful summer. We are excited about upcoming Fall events and the many fun opportunities we have to get together, so please stay connected.

Brunch in Roanoke

We are looking forward to resuming our regional gatherings for alumnae, families, and friends of SMS. On September 30, Sarah Belle Eason Parrott '68 will host brunch and all alumnae and friends in the western part of the Commonwealth of Virginia are encouraged to join us. RSVP to Joycelyn Blizzard by September 17.

Fortson 5K River Run

Mark your calendars for this year's Fortson 5K River Run on October 13. We hope to see lots of alumnae back on campus to join in the fun. For questions, please reach out to 5K Chair, Mary Catherine Sargeant '08, or register online to enter the race. Walk, run, stroll your little ones, and enjoy a morning at the river. Can't make it to campus for the race? Cheer on your classmates and friends by donating a sign for them to read along the route. Hope to see you at the Fortson 5K!

Class Notes

Remember to submit your latest news for inclusion in class notes by October 31. It's easy to share your news through our online portal. We look forward to reading what you've been up to in 2018 when we publish The Bridge in January.

Alumnae Weekend 2019

Plans are already underway for a great 2019 Reunion Weekend. The event will be held during the school year, over the weekend of May 3-4, so you can meet our students and faculty and see the school in action. Please save the date and join your SMS classmates and friends for this exciting homecoming.

Fall Sports Calendar

Check out the SMS Fall Sports Calendar. We are always looking for more Scottie fans to attend games on campus or across the region. The current schedules for field hockey, cross country, and volleyball are posted and will be updated routinely. We are still looking for coaches, so please help us spread the word and refer a friend. Hope to see you at a game. GO SCOTTIES!
