eFolder for April 20


Happy Friday! Is spring really here to stay? Let’s hope that all of the really cold weather is over, and that spring truly has arrived. The daffodils were looking really sad this week, and I think that was even too cold for them. Please keep in mind that the days are still windy and cool, and that students should at least have a jacket or hoodie for recess.

Join us this weekend for the SMS production of Peter Pan, directed by our very own Miss Koch. Tickets are $5 and will be available at the door. Showtimes are Friday 7:00 PM and Saturday 1:30 and 7:00 PM. The 1:30 PM Matinee will have free popcorn. Don’t miss it!
