Attention SMA families!!
This year our PTO is sponsoring our annual Fundraising Event on November 19th, 2014. It is a one day only event called "GO TAKE A HIKE." On Wednesday, November 5th, your child(ren) will attend a GO TAKE A HIKE kick off event during their PE time. At the kick off, they will receive all the information about our event. Students may then begin collecting pledges for the actual event which will be held on November 19th. This year, we are inviting parents to come and walk with their child(ren) during their scheduled walking time on November 19th for a $10 donation. This is $10 per adult even if you have several children you want to walk with! This event is a fun day of good exercise that helps PTO raise money for the SMA iPad initiative. More information and a walking schedule will be coming at a later date!!
Lighthouse Ministries Canned Food Drive will begin on Monday, November 3rd, and end on Friday, November 14th. The food collected helps families who may not have enough food for the holidays. This organization helps many families in need. An email has been sent regarding items needed. Thank you for your support.

This year will be my fifth year at South McKeel. I am very grateful for the opportunity to teach your children and to share my love of music with them. I strive to build self-esteem in every student through musical activities and we stay very active in the music classroom! Working at SMA has enabled me to transition from full-time music ministry to teaching in the classroom. I earned my Bachelor's degree from Oberlin Conservatory in OH, my Master's degree in music performance from Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD, and my Master of Divinity with a concentration in church music from Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.
