Teacher Appreciation Week!

Thank you!!

I want to extend a big thank you to our classified staff & PTO that helped to make it special for our teachers this past week! We appreciate it!

Finishing Strong

We are down to 30.3 school days left of the 2021-2022 school year. It is important that we continue to look and monitor our academics as we finish strong. This past week, as you know, we have began our SBA testing. Our encouragement in doing their best, reading quietly as a choice when they've finished, and maintaining a positive learning environment out of respect for their classmates is appreciated.

At PSMS, high quality teaching and learning means that we are a community of learners including both students and staff. Teachers provide routine and structures along with the belief that ALL students have the ability to learn.

Reminder: 8th Grade Families

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 (portsusanpto@gmail.com)

**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)!

Please email these pictures directly to aharrington@stanwood.wednet.edu or wholtum@stanwood.wednet.edu by June 1st, 2022.

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 (portsusanpto@gmail.com) for volunteer opportunities.

As we welcome volunteers back into our buildings on April 11th, we will continue to follow the practice that there are more pertinent times than others for volunteers to be in classrooms. If there are times when volunteers would be more appropriately placed in other capacities in the building than in your classroom, please let your principal know.
