SPIRIT GAMES

On Sunday, April 30, 2017, SMG will once again participate in the Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation Spirit Games. This foundation has been a tremendous help in offering financial assistance to those families seeking the traditional values and academic excellence SMG offers to students and families. At present, the Stephen Breen Foundation has helped several SMG families with tuition assistance. This is an incredible blessing, and we are so very grateful for the help received from the foundation. We would like to be the number one participating school this year to show our gratitude! Please visit the SMG website and click on the Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation link to register online for this fun-filled event. Students may wear their Stephen Breen Memorial Foundation Spirit Game t-shirts to school on Friday spirit days.


See you on Sunday, April 30th to celebrate Mass with the Bishop on Nolan's football field, enjoy live music by our very own Mr. Smith, and have lots of fun with SMG's sponsored dunk booth along with many other booth activities and field events!

Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to serve your children as parents, educators, and faith-filled supporters. Please grant us the courage to turn to you and be open as well as accepting to your call. Amen.
