This year’s SMS Crusader Benefit is fundraising for enhanced security infrastructure of the campus. Promoting the safety and well-being of children is the central focus of the SMS Crusader Benefit, which endeavors to establish an even more secure environment, prevent harmful incidents, and prioritize the protection of our most precious assets by implementing proactive security measures on our campus.

Security Additions include:

  • Automating entry gates at the center driveway and automated gates strategically placed around the campus for secure closure
  • Heightening fence security along the front of the school
  • Increasing field barrier fencing around our fields to 10 feet

Attend the event and help us reach our goal.


  • Iconic ‘60s hits and a variety of dance music
