To welcome our First Grad Students to the SMS family, our student body holds an exciting event that all of you (especially our 1st grade parents!) are welcome to attend! In Germany, the children who are entering firstgrade receive a Schultute, a cone, filled with various treats and surprises, on their first day of school. We have adopted this tradition, and each of our first-grade students receives a Schultute during a wonderful assembly with the bishop, superintendent, and many other special guests! This ceremony will take place at 1:45pm in our gymnasium, and we hope to see you there!
