Community Events (charity / food drives / student services)
Back to School BBQ, Remembrance Day Assembly, Christmas Concert, Sunshine Montessori Science Fair, Cultural Night, and Year End Picnic, Grandparents’ Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, International Day and more!
We also welcome specialists from many agencies including Community Care Access Centre (CCAC who provides occupations support/speech therapy and hearing services). We accommodate these specialists by providing them with space to work with our children and we meet with families and these specialists as necessary.
Each year, the SMS community gives back to the greater Kitchener-Waterloo community in a number of different ways. The students select a charity in September and then make a small donation at the end of each month on their Dress Down for Charity Day. In conjunction with Eastwood Collegiate, our families donate items of need to be packed into Christmas boxes that are distributed in our neighbourhood. Throughout the school year, large family events have a Foodbank donation admission price; the children are always excited to contribute to the mountain of cans and boxes in the foyer.
