SMS Christmas Program

December 2021

SMS 6th graders performed the play “December In Our Town” on December 15th at the Marit Elliott Performing Arts Center. This program highlighted holiday traditions of other cultures; the students showed that peace, joy, and hope are holiday traditions that can be shared by all. The 2nd-5th graders sang during the program; the Kindergarten and 1st grade classes entertained the crowd with festive songs before the program. Our Little Saints Preschool hosted their faith-filled (and adorable) program at SMS earlier in the day.
