Thank You Mrs. Richards for putting together a wonderful Christmas Performance. It was so nice to see the whole school participate together in a performance everyone could enjoy!! Our kids did such a great job! Many thanks for all of the time and effort that went into planning and practicing for this performance! Our teachers and staff did a great job coming together to pull off 2 wonderful nights of spirit filled performing!!!

Mrs. Pierce’s Principal Message:

At SMG this past week, the message of hope rang through our halls and in our hearts. This next week, the focus is on peace. In this busy world we live in, let us take a few moments to reflect on the importance of peace. Join me as we pray for peace in our world, our community and our school.

Dear Jesus, you entered our world on Christmas as the Prince of Peace. This Advent, as we strive to become the-best-version-of-ourselves, fill us with a deep and abiding peace. Help us share that peace with everyone we encounter, especially those who need it most. Amen. (

Peace be with you,

Mrs. Pierce
