Thank you, thank you!

What a memorable Dinner Dance and Auction! Thank you to all who participated in this event! What a success! We had a special celebration (Ms. Meurer's Birthday) and a new item in the live auction. We look forward to seeing our new addition, Pastor of the Day! We will have numbers soon!

There are black and white 8x10 pictures of every student that were hung at the auction and are now available in the front office for sale for $10. Please stop in and support the Dinner Dance by purchasing your child's picture!

Thank you all for an incredible evening!

Grab your camping gear and head to the Book Fair!

It’s time for the SMG/Scholastic Book Fair at SMG. The Fair opens on Thursday with preview day for grades K-4th and HAPPY CAMPER DAY for the whole school. Students can wear their BEST camping gear to school on Thursday, May 4th. So-put on those hiking books, camping hats, fishing vest, and head to the SMG book fair.

The fair continues Friday, May 5th with Grandparents’ Day. Students can shop the fair with their special grandparent, and grandparents LOVE to see their grandchildren reading.

Students will then shop thru May 11th. Be looking for reminder bracelets going home with your child the day before they are scheduled to shop.

The fair will be open from 7:30-3:45, May 5th thru May 11th.

Remember, book fair is the number one fundraiser for the SMG library. Help keep great books in the hands of all our students and come out and support the fair!
