SSMS Weekly Update
October 29, 2021
Dear SSMS Families,
Thank you to all the parents that brought amazing soup and chili to feed our school staff today. The parent volunteers that set up, served, and cleaned up were amazing. We couldn't do what we do without outstanding volunteers. We have such incredible support from our families and our SSMS team is so appreciative.
Monday is a student holiday and staff development day. We look forward to seeing everyone back here at SSMS on Tuesday November 2nd. We hope you have an outstanding weekend. Go Tigers!

CLOSE UP IS BACK!
We are so excited to be sharing this opportunity with our students again this year! Because of the travel restrictions of the last couple of years, we are opening the trip to all 7th AND 8th graders. After this year, however, only 7th grade students will be invited to attend.
Here are Frequently Asked Questions about the trip - if you would like to sign up, there is a link at the bottom of the FAQ document. Your enrollment coupon will be sent home with your child beginning next week.
