What is it?: The Showcase is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It is a great event, with performances, silent auction, food and more!
BIG NEWS : FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, SMS SHOWCASE IS ACCEPTING CREDIT CARDS!
Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help thus far! We are well on our way to having a fantastic Showcase! However, we can still use volunteers. Please contact Julie Bradley at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can you help with Showcase?
Donate : If you own a small business or know someone that does, consider donating. We take anything: gift cards, services, merchandise, food; if you can donate it, we will find a way to use it! All donations are tax-deductible! Remember, SMS serves more than 600 students and their families, so this is a great way to advertise your business! Volunteer: We need hands! We have a lot of volunteers out there asking for donations, but we still need more! Other opportunities to volunteer will be announced when we get closer to the Showcase!
*Yearbooks! Pre-order your 2015 SMS yearbook for $30. Students are in the front hall before school taking orders.
* Spirit Days: Whenever there is a HOME athletic event, we have a Spirit Day at school. Students may wear SMS-issued T-shirts, sweatshirts, or hoodies. The athletes playing in the HOME game that night are allowed to wear their team’s jersey (if sleeveless, a t-shirt must be worn underneath). All other dress code rules apply.
