SBMS Weekly Updates
October 7, 2017
Hello Pirate Families,
There are so many wonderful things happening in the boro'! Please join us in congratulating Mr. Jacob Mabry on his recognition as the Onslow County Schools Assistant Principal of the Year. Thank you to Mrs. Abrams and Mr. Miller for taking a huge group of students to the FCA Field Day at Northside High School last Saturday. Congratulations to our very own Mrs. Sweeting and Mrs. Shaver for presenting at the NCSLMA conference in Winston-Salem this week and thank you to everyone who showed their appreciation for our wonderful team of custodians.
We have much to be proud of as our students and staff are working hard in the classrooms and on the athletic fields. Next week will include a workday on Monday, interim reports on Tuesday, picture day on Wednesday, an away football game at NWPMS and softball at HCMS, and our Pirate Parent meeting on Thursday at 6 pm.
Our Pirate Parents are collecting donations to make the Fall Festival a huge success. They need donations of wrapped candy, colored hairspray and 2 liters of sodas. The 3 homerooms with the most donations will receive a special treat. Parent technology workshops will be facilitated in October.
