School Spirit Day

is a time-honored tradition at South Mountain. Each June the entire community looks forward to the day they can get decked out in blue and gold for a day of music, laughter, games and obstacle courses, water balloons and popsicles, and, of course, tug-of-war contests.

School Musical

Fifth graders take the lead in the South Mountain musical each year, supported by a chorus of third and fourth graders. All students in the upper grades are invited to act, sing, and take part in stage crew for the annual production, headed up by music teacher Ebony Wiggins. Here, students perform in The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley!


Fourth grade at South Mountain means Spiritree. Artists from the Morris Arts Education program join students each year for a unique, creative, and meaningful learning experience the students and their teachers will never forget.


Invention Convention

Every spring, South Mountain third graders put on their entrepreneurial caps for the annual Invention Convention. Each student comes up with an idea for a product that can provide a solution to an everyday problem and makes a prototype to present to classmates and parents. Amazing things get created—perhaps the next million-dollar idea will originate in South Orange!
