This past weekend was graduation here at SMS. Luckily for us the rain held off and it turned out to be a beautiful weekend. Congratulations to the entire class of 2017! You are a terrific bunch of kids and I can’t wait to hear what you are all up to in the coming years. Below are a handful of pictures from graduation:
Also a quick shout out to Kevin O’Keefe who gave one of the best graduation speeches I have heard. Luckily he was last to speak. Would have been a tough act to follow…
So what are the alpine seniors up to next year?
Riku deferred from Saint Lawerence and will be taking a PG year next year to ski.

Kay will be spending next season skiing on the Chilean National Team.
