Aladdin Under the Stars
This is not a prom or formal dance. Girls are encouraged to wear anything from school clothing to spring dresses, and boys are encouraged to wear anything from school clothing to collared shirts and ties. A class picture will be taken at 7:30 PM and all attendees will receive a free copy courtesy of the SMS Student Council.
In order to attend the dance, students must be in class all day on Friday (no early exits for hair appointments). Students must not be removed from any class for behavioral reasons the day before or the day of the dance. Make good choices and enjoy the dance with the Class of 2020!
Spring Picture Wrap Up
Spring Picture Wrap Up starts on Monday. If you signed for pictures last week, it is your responsibility to either return the pictures OR the money! These items will be collected each morning from 7:45 to 8:00 AM in the hall between the cafeteria and great room. Look for the rolling cart!
Remember that your packet pick up signature was your promise to be responsible! You have until Friday, May 20th to return your pictures/money. Students that fail to return their pictures or pay for them will be restricted from year-end team celebrations. Check with your parents regarding their picture plan and get them returned or paid for soon! Thanks!
It's Still School
Counting today, we have 14 days of class remaining. Each and every day is a school day. This means that we have high expectations of you each and every day. Don't fall prey to 'random acts of stupidity' thinking that misbehavior now 'won't be a big deal.'
Finish the year with class and WITH your class. Don't skip school work. Your grades are still in play. Don't break our school behavior rules thinking that 'I'll only be suspended a few days.' Acts of misbehavior now may result in students starting next fall on suspension or even on expulsion. We have much to celebrate as we conclude this successful year. Enjoy your remaining days with your teachers and peers. But continue to meet your academic and behavioral expectations.
It's still school.
Explorer and Voyager students welcome Civil War Re-enactors to campus on Friday, May 13th. Eighth graders will visit an encampment and learn about Civil War living, medicine, tactics, and weaponry. Weather permitting, the group will fire a cannon at the end of the day! All students are welcome to join the cannon fire!
SMS 7th graders will get a dose of reality on Friday, May 13th with the annual Reality Store. About 30 community volunteers will join us for the event. All students will get a custom experience where they make life decisions and learn to live within an income!
