Christmas Concert Highlights!
We had a very successful Winter Concert, filled with audience members.
The grade 5s, bands, and choir all performed wonderfully!
Thank you for supporting our Book Fair!
The SMS Scholastic Book Fair was a great success - total sales were $4967.04 which translates into $2746.96 in rewards! The reward dollars are used to purchase books for the library and for classrooms, as well as to purchase equipment and resources for the school. This will give our school many free books to add to our library. Thank you very much to all students, families, Mrs. King, Mrs. Desautels, Ms. Lavallee, and Ms. Nemeth all that supported and helped out at our very successful Book Fair!
