Behind the Scenes
Thank you, PSMS Secretaries!!
Last week, we celebrated our Administrative Assistants (Secretaries). As you know, they are typically the first point of contact for our families throughout the school year. We thank them for all they do!
Our ASB Officers!!I wanted to give a shout out to our ASB officers (& Mrs. Harrington) for the time and effort they've put in to continue to come up with creative ways for student involvement. From informative posters to handing out coupons for spirit days, their leadership is appreciated.

8th Grade Families *Mark Your Calendars
June 17th, 2022
This will be an evening of celebrating the Class of 2026! We will have a promotion ceremony at Port Susan Middle School from 6-7 p.m. (families invited), followed by a social/dance (8th grade students only) from 7-8:30 p.m. to celebrate their accomplishments. If you're interested in helping out with this event, please contact Port Susan PTO (firstname.lastname@example.org)
**We Need Pictures**
We'd like to put together a slideshow of memories for our 8th grade students. We have pictures throughout their time here at Port Susan, but would like to reach out and ask that you share any pictures from their time together in school that you have as well. These could be pictures from preschool until the present & the more students in the pictures, the better (5th grade camp, elementary field trips, concerts, sports, etc)!
If you're interested in helping to organize the 8th grade promotion celebration on the evening of June 17th, please reach out to our PTO (email@example.com) for volunteer opportunities.
