Daring Greatly in Faith, Academics, & Service for SMCS

Week 6 of 2020. Bring on Valentines!

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend. I am excited to learn what you learned at PD. While you were out, we spent time working on BSF and marketing!

Please keep your materials from PD on Friday for our Team meeting in March. I will connect with you over the week to discuss key takeaways and what is directly applicable to SMCS.
