SSMS Weekly Update

MARCH 25, 2022

Hello SSMS Tiger Nation,

It's been an exciting and fun week back at SSMS. Students and staff are geared up for a strong finish to the school year. Our STAAR Interim tests went well - teachers are getting useful data to inform learning for the last term so we can finish strong. Soccer, golf, and tennis are underway and we are excited about successful seasons. Theater, band, choir, and orchestra are busy preparing for spring concerts and we can't wait to see what they have in store.

Have a safe and fun weekend!
