A Successful SMBA Season!
WHAT A GAME! At the SMBA Championship this week, the GREEN team won a nail-biter over the RED team in double OT, 23-20.
The best part of our unique SMBA basketball program is COMMUNITY! Our teams are co-ed and foster cross-grade relationships. St. Michael's alumni eagerly return each year and coach. (Thank you, Coaches!) Our students and families cheer and celebrate the sportsmanship, hard work and efforts of all of the teams.
Thanks to everyone for a wonderful season! (Three cheers as well for the SMPA for providing pre-game s'mores.)
Re-enrollment contracts for the 2018/2019 school year were mailed to our current families. Thanks for returning them to us by Friday, February 23
. Please contact Anne Bridgforth
if you did not receive yours.
