      Save the date for our school’s biggest fundraiser
      Saturday, April 26, 2014

      View this year's invitation here:

      Invitation 2014

      In addition to fellowship, there is a Silent and Live Auction.
      The success of this event is due to the generous donations
      of time, talent, and treasure
      from our SMS families.

      We are looking for new items, tickets, or services
      to make this event the best yet!
      Example: electronics, spa services, sports tickets,
      homemade items, and family outings.
      The sky’s the limit!

      If you want to help,
      but don’t have an item/service to donate,
      we also can use monetary donations to offset the cost.
      A family can sponsor the DJ
      or help with the postage.
      Please contact Samantha LeBouef at 815-756-6824.
