Here is a summary of some of last year's enrichment programs we offered our students. Stay tuned for this year's schedule.
We kicked off the 2016-2017 enrichment program with Bret Nichols! Bret is a motivational speaker, professional basketball player who played in Ireland, England and against the world famous Harlem Globetrotters as well as a player and coach of the New York Nationals. He spoke to our students, and delivered his “You Gotta Believe” message of motivation, inspiration and encouragement with an interactive style!
SMS Broadway Stars
In November, we celebrated the arts with our very own SMS Broadway Stars musical presentation of “Jungle Book, Abridged!” directed by Milford’s own theatre company Pantochino Productions!
Hampstead Stage Company returned to St. Mary School with their presentation of “The Prince & The Pauper.
Mr. Peace is brought his motivational and character building assembly to SMS. Our students heard his passionate message on bullying, diversity, leadership and making positive life choices.
The Earth Dome was here! And it was GIGANTIC!!! It was a cool way to see and understand Earth as it appears from space-no painted globes here! Our students climbed inside the 19 foot by 22 foot inflatable balloon to get a better understanding of the continents, time zones, latitude, longitude and so much more!
America’s most famous author, Samuel Clemens, known by his pen name as Mark Twain, entertained our students and staff. He weaved from his classic stories and timeless illustrations of summer life and childhood wonder that are icons of American literature to historical events of Clemens’ childhood and early manhood as a microcosm of pre-Civil War life on the Mississippi River.
History came alive! A talented historical impressionist captured our young audience with his presentation of George Washington, the Father of Our Country. Our students learnt all about the life of our founding father separating facts from fiction!
