Last Week of School

Incredibly, the last week of school is here! Huge thank you to everyone who made Field Day '23 awesome! I heard from several first year SMS students that this was "the best field day ever!" I couldn't ask for much better than that! Special thanks to Mr. Hyde for organizing everything, Megan Poole for getting our t-shirt order together, Meghan Huffman and Jamie Brown for running the amazing obstacle course, David and Susan Poole for providing lunch, as well as all the parent and grandparent volunteers, and our staff that made this day exciting and memorable for our students. 

There is a lot going on in this final week. Heads up, there will be NO RIPLEY BUS, but the GEORGETOWN BUS WILL RUN AS SCHEDULED, Thanks Mr. Heslar!:
