We just wanted to thank all of the teachers and staff at SMA for adapting so wonderfully to this situation. You were on top of things from the beginning. It makes it so much easier on us as parents to know our children’s education is in good hands. We will see you soon!

You are and always will be like family to the Wades. Every dedicated effort, slice of humor, and generous grace that you have extended toward the SMA children over the last few weeks has not gone unnoticed. Oftentimes, people think that angels are untouchables- cherubic-like creatures found only in the Bible and on church ceilings. But we have seen them alive and at work inside 222 Central Avenue for years and never before have they spread their wings of love to shield the children from angst and confusion as they have in the last several weeks. May you always know how deeply you are cherished, how embraced you are in our prayers, and how grateful we are for the example you set to the children. Love and gratitude to you all!
