This weather is amazing!  We are so fortunate to live in a beautiful place with so many “let’s go outside and do something” days.  We have completed our 1st quarter and are two weeks into quarter 2.  Thank you for the warm welcome to SBMS.  It’s been a pleasure to get to know our children and families, although I have been limited in those introductions.  The students I have met are respectful and kind.  It has been a complex beginning to the school year, and our staff is working hard to meet the needs of our students.  Let us know how we can help support your child’s learning.

I hope to meet ALL of you soon!   Marie Laboy  (
