Fundraising for our Knights

Each year a group of volunteers come together to host an event to raise funds for many ongoing programs that are sponsored by the SMHS PTO. These programs include, Grades on line, the phone call home system, and the Round Table Newsletter. Additionally, PTO funds help support the purchase of new technology for the SMHS classrooms.

The Graduating Knight Fundraising Committee was created to raise money for senior year end activities. Each year this fundraising group within the SMHS PTO will help to raise funds to offset the cost of our Safe and Sober Grad Night for graduating SMHS seniors.

A partial list of other fundraising activities and opportunities for participation are listed below.
