What a week!

Wasn't that fun!?! Homecoming 2017 sure wasn't a disappointment. We had fun all week participating in district spirit days and having competitions amongst our Houses here at SMS. Students and staff alike enjoyed showing their Raider Spirit throughout the week, while having fun learning in the classroom at the same time. The week ended with an awesome display of Raider Pride at our District Pep Rally. Then later that evening the amazing display of talent by our athletes, band and cheerleaders at the football game. Proud to be a Raider, aren't you?!? Go Raiders!
