Summer Camps - Have You Registered?

Summer will be here before you know it, so we want to be sure you have a safe, engaging summer camp experience for your children here at Silverdale Baptist Academy!

High School Drama's The Sound of Music

The high school drama department presented their spring musical The Sound of Music this past Friday and Saturday at The Colonnade Theater in Ringgold, GA. It was another stellar production with a cast that included elementary and middle school students to fill out the von Trapp family, and a live 5-piece orchestra playing from the pit below the front of the stage! Both Friday and Saturday were standing room only, and if you talk to anyone who attended, they'll tell you that our students were outstanding! To see photos from the production, click here.
