CHESS CLUB TOURNAMENT THIS WEEK Monday chess club is still in full swing, and I need all Monday participants after school. Wednesday club is finished with semi-final round, so no Wednesday chess. Friday should be only those players still competing (unless your sibling/ride is still in). Next Monday the 13th will begin the school-wide finals after school. I will post the final 12 participants at the end of this week. Been a great tournament so far and looking forward to the finals!

Good morning, just a few quick messages about today's Christmas Concert at the Gaslight Theater in Georgetown. As mentioned in the text message this morning, please have students in the building with their classes by 2:45. Grades 3-8 will be in the back rows of the balcony (they know where to go). Grades P-2 will begin backstage. After Preschool performs, they will be dismissed back to their parents, so will K-2 after each of their performances, so you should be sure you have room for them to come sit with you after they perform. 3-8 students will return to the balcony after their performance. We are doing it this way to ensure that parents, grandparents, and any other family and friends will have the best seating possible. We are looking forward to another great show today! See you this afternoon!

Good Afternoon SMS Families, We have two announcements today. First, in the interest of safety for our children at play in the parking lot, we will be closing the main school parking lot daily when children are playing or walking in the parking lot. There will be a chain blocking the entrance. If you come to the school between 10:30 and 2:40, and the chain is up, you will need to park on the hill and walk to the office door. Second, we would like to remind you that students may dress up for class Halloween parties on Wednesday, October 26. Please make sure costumes are Catholic school appropriate and will not prevent students from participating in normal school day activities. Have a great weekend!
