Please check out some of the below activities that contribute to the betterment of the school by allowing for academic enrichment, field trips, and facility improvements.
Since 2016, SMS has partnered with Bill Estes Ford for the annual, Drive 4 UR School Event. This is a simple way to raise money for SMS because all you have to do is test-drive a new Ford vehicle; no sales pitch; no gimmicks! One person from each household can test-drive a new vehicle and SMS will receive $20 (Max: 300 test-drives for a total of $6,000). The past couple years we qualified for a second test-drive that allowed 200 drivers for $100 per drive (total of $2,000 Max).
This year's D4URS event will occur on May 9th from 1PM-7PM, so mark your calendars!
Mardi Gras - The annual St. Malachy Mardi Gras fundraiser consists of a live and silent auction, dancing and dinner. This year's event we will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Mardi Gras. This fundraiser benefits many needs of the school such as technology, accelerated reader, playground equipment, bleachers, and air conditioning to name a few.
