Fabulous Band Concert!

band1  Our grade 7 band (with just four months of practice!) sounded very professional last Thursday night.  The packed gym enjoyed their selections, as well as the talents of our grade 8 band and jazz band who are very polished!  Thanks to parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends who came out to enjoy the finale of our students’ hard work.  Thanks to Ms. Beach and Mr. Izik-Dzurko for conducting all three fantastic bands!


SMS Has Talent! (and we need library books back!)

talent1The SMS gym was an exciting place last week.  Our students and staff were blown away with the wide range of talent at our talent show.  We had singers, dancers, musicians, parkour athletes, and even cards tricks.  Thanks to Mr. Lynka and Ms. Verney for their work preparing our students.  It was a fantastic display of SMS talent!

A reminder from Mme Reed that all library books must be returned to the library by this Friday, June 15th.  Mme Reed is working hard to keep our collection in fantastic shape for next year.  Please check your lockers and homes for books.  Thank you!

Welcome back to our travelling students!

Thank you to our tremendous students who were excellent ambassadors for SMS (and BC) during their recent trip to Quebec and Ontario.  Lots of learning and lots of fun!  Thanks to Mme Angers, M Muise and Chelie for travelling with the students and learning with them.  It looks like the trip of a lifetime!
