Dear SM Families,
The Christmas season is upon us! Listed below is all the information you will need to make the next few weeks smooth, merry and meaningful for your family. Any grade-specific information will be sent by your child’s teacher.

All our students have been hard at work since the beginning of the school year to prepare for their Cantatas. As a courtesy to the performers and other families, we recommend that families with young children find a babysitter for the performances. The Cantatas are lengthy performances (at least 60 minutes) and therefore tiresome for little ones. If you choose to allow young children to attend, please do not bring hand-held electronic games which can diminish the significance of these reverent occasions and distract others in the congregation. Thank you for your consideration!

All Christmas Cantatas will take place in the Alumni Chapel at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The Alumni Chapel seats over one thousand and is a very beautiful and reverent setting.
