Holiday Hampers – The SMS Spirit of Giving

The leadership students at SMS have organized a holiday hamper collection throughout the school. The goals of this initiative is to have each core class fill a holiday hamper to help foster a spirit of giving and generosity heading into the break.

We invite students to contribute items such as:

Stove-Top stuffing, Foil Roasting Pan, Canned Vegetables, Cranberry Sauce/Jelly (canned), Pasta/Past sauce, Pancake mix/syrup, Crackers, Cereal, Peanut Butter, Jam, honey, Christmas candy/nuts, Chocolate or candy canes, Cake or cookies (cake mix or already made – Oreos), Real fruit juice, Tea/Coffee, Hot chocolate…etc.

With thanks,

The SMS student leadership club

Week of December 9th-13th

week at a glance picHard two believe it is just two weeks before our winter break.  SMS continues to be a busy place!  Please note that we have moved our winter band concert to January to allow more rehearsal time and to free families up during the busy month of December.  Grade 6/7 basketball starts this week.  If you haven’t gone to Parent Connect to view your student(s) report card, it is available anytime.  Please see instructions on the right.  It is wonderful to have Ms. Lawson back working with our grade 8s after her maternity leave, and Mme Gauthier back from Quebec working with red team students in Mme Angers class.  Enjoy the sunshine out there!

***parents and athletes should check Mr. Smith’s blog regularly for updates and additions. Find it under the “parents & students” tab at the top of the SMS website…then go down to “sports”. Please remember that parents who intend to drive students other than their own this basketball season will need to get added to our SMS eligible driver list…this takes some paperwork. Ask your coach or call the office for details.
