The SMS Annual Fund purpose will remain unchanged from year to year. All monies raised towards the SMS Annual fund will fund three areas:

  • High-quality, engaging experiences, resources, and facilities, both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Top-notch professional development for our outstanding teachers.
  • Tuition Assistance to make SMS available to more families.
  • Areas of highest need at SMS.

(Please consider adding $1.75 to your donation to cover processing costs we incur.)

Because our aim is to keep the school’s tuition affordable for many families, tuition alone only covers our operating budget. The items detailed above are funded exclusively through the contributions of our community to the SMS Annual Fund.

We are thankful for your support.

The Annual Fund is just as important as the tuition you pay every month. We ask that every family contribute what they can, at whatever frequency works best for them, so that we have an entire community that supports these three areas essential to the success of our beloved school. Our goal is 100% participation from current families in the Annual Fund.
