The Friday before spring break SMGS offered student choice day where the students were given the opportunity to choose three "classes" to learn something new. The offerings ranged from fishing, kitchen skills, cheer/dance, magic tricks, beading, electronics, art, health and wellness, and so much more! It was incredible! A huge thank you to the planning committee for organizing an event that ran so smoothly and was a blast to attend!!

Spread the Word Inclusion Spirit Week!!!
Students in grades K-6 enjoyed making beaded snowflakes as a reward for a paw drawing. We also talked about a few things to try at home to possibly get a good snowfall before winter is over. Things such as throwing ice off your porch or deck, sleeping with your pjs inside out and backwards, running around the table 5 times before going to bed, and sleeping with a white crayon under your pillow were all suggestions.
SMGS Book Club 2023 started of with a beautiful read. The Book Club chose the children's novel, Wishtree, by Katherine Applegate. In celebration of completing the read, a wrap party was held in the library with character themed crafts and meaningful discussion about friendship and inclusion. What a lovely message Wishtree instills in readers,--no matter what age!
