​​​​​Attention, Teachers and Parents!
Spring Graduation 2022 Recital​;
The Spring  Graduation Recital 2022 was a success! First time in-person since the pandemic, the students' excellent performances, and the unique expertise that fellow teachers were so inspiring,.  Everyone will be eagerly looking forward to the next one, so stay tuned! . We thank the organizers behind the scenes who made sure Graduation standards are met and that details are covered. These efforts made the Graduation process possible and successful through ways which have not been done before in SMAC-BAPB's history.
