Upcoming Parent Events



Saturday, September 30 at 6 p.m.


Can’t make it to Munich this year? We’ve got you covered! Join the party on September 30 at St. Mary’s. We will celebrate in SMA style by clinking our beer steins, feasting on traditional German eats, and mingling with fellow SMA parents as the new school year begins. Don’t miss out on the best Oktoberfest in town!


Not a beer lover? It wouldn’t be a celebration without wine too.


Only a few tickets left!
