South Mountain Elementary School
SMS SUPERSTAR NEWS - APRIL 2020
Principal's Message Mr. Mason
It is hard to believe that we have been away from school for six weeks and I truly miss all of your faces. I want to thank all the families for sharing photos of how you are keeping busy during these trying times. There is a saying, "April showers bring May flowers" and to help with that phrase I wanted to share a couple of photos of my most recent project at the Mason household. My wife and kids have asked for a greenhouse to grow our own vegetables and herbs and here is the final product.
Awesome Superstars Video
Happy Birthday South Mountain Superstars!
