This year our theme is “Once Upon an SMC”, bringing us back to all the fairytales and stories we grew up with and still enjoy. We strongly encourage everyone to be as creative as they can, and would love to see costumes throughout the week. This theme has been split up into 5 “chapters” and each student will be assigned a group of leaders in one of the following chapters. We hope that after this Orientation Week, you will be ready to “write your next chapter” here at SMC!
This chapter covers a land of many kingdoms, ranging from classical fairy tales adapted by Disney, to the Kingdom of Camelot and Agrabah, the land of Aladdin. (Costume ideas to keep in mind: Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, King Arthur and Merlin, Aladdin, Three Musketeers)
