SMS Holiday Concert is a Success!

At SMS, we have over 130 students in Band and almost 225 in Choir! It was a joy to highlight their talents at the annual SMS Holiday Concert. This year, two separate performances were held in order to accommodate the families of our parents. Even then, there was not a seat to be had! Students were able to perform for a capacity crowd at each of the performances. Thank you to Mrs. Bywater, Miss Gansebom, and the SMS Bands and Choirs for a job well done!

Strategic Planning Gains Momentum at SMS!
