Welcome to SMS

  •                                   Catholic Education Coronavirus Taskforce  Notice Regarding Governor’s Announcement                                                                                

                                                                      Of April 9, 2020
    Today, Governor Wolf announced that all Pennsylvania school buildings would remain closed
    through the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year. Archdiocesan schools have been
    successfully operating with flexible instruction since March 16 and will continue with this
    method of instruction indefinitely.
    In compliance with the Governor’s order, all school buildings will remain closed for the
    remainder of this school year. All on-site extra-curricular and co-curricular activities including
    retreats, athletic events both on and off school grounds, field trips, and social events planned by
    elementary, secondary, and special education schools will be cancelled or, where possible, may
    be held in an online format instead.
    In the coming weeks, we will work with school leaders to plan for the remainder of the school
    year for school graduations and to address other issues that will need to be addressed for the
    remainder of the school year.
    May our Lord continue to strengthen our faith and renew our hope! We wish all our families
    continued health, safety and a blessed Easter

    Our Mission Statement:

    St. Margaret School, a Catholic elementary school in Narberth, Pennsylvania, is a vital component of the Catholic Community of St. Margaret Church. St. Margaret School strives to develop the whole child spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically by encouraging a partnership with parents, the primary educators of their children.

    The school exists to nurture children and continue the instruction of our Catholic faith, while providing them with the differentiated intellectual instruction required to attain lifelong goals regardless of their race, religion, or ethnic background. The faculty and staff guide children to become Christian leaders who will strengthen the Body of Christ by making a positive impact in an ever-changing world.
