The money raised from School FUNdraisers, sponsored by the SMS PTO, help to support our entire community of parents, teachers, and students. SMS family fundraising efforts last year allowed the PTO to provide opportunities for teachers to attend conferences, host Field Day and GrandFriends Day, order classroom supplies, install new classroom lighting, develop a robotics team, purchase a bus, and many other items.

Parent Pre-arranged Absence (PPA)
Family vacations should be scheduled when school is not in session. Occasionally, when a child must accompany his/her parents out of town, the following procedure will be followed to ensure that the child's schoolwork continues:
Eligibility: If parent/guardian is planning a vacation other than when school is not in session, please contact the principal.
- PPA is intended for family-related activities.
- PPA is not expected to exceed five (5) school days per school year.
- PPA is not available the first and last week of each semester, nor during ILEARN testing.
Procedures: After receiving approval from the principal, the parent/guardian will:
- Arrange to obtain the class assignments via teacher(s). These are also in the child's Google Classroom.
- Assume full responsibility for any lack of progress that could be associated with time of absence.
- See that the child turns in all written assignments for this period to the teacher(s) at the time s/he returns to school from the absence. Make-up work is the responsibility of the student.
- Make-up work for a PPA is different than for an illness. PPAs are intended for family-related activities (e.g., special family events, college graduations, weddings, etc.). Special circumstances other than those above are treated individually, and arrangements are to be made with the principal.
