Week 6 wrap up...

A recap and some new information (including picture day!).

Good afternoon SMS community,

Hard to believe that we only have two weeks left in our first quarter. The days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling off a bit. November will be here before we know it. Here is a recap of some recent events and a couple things to put on your radar:


This past Wednesday we had our first student support day. We had great success meeting with many of our students and problem solving issues that they were having. We ended the evening with a parent support presentation and Q&A. This presentation can be found here.


A reminder that our teachers are available everyday from 2-3 to meet with students and help them with any questions or concerns that they may have. These times for clarification and assistance are valuable in getting necessary academic help. Please encourage your student to access this time on a regular basis.


Our lunch bunch was a great experience this past Wednesday. We had many students and staff share some laughs and conversation as we connected over Zoom during our lunchtime. We will be holding this lunch bunch option every Thursday.


We continue to make home visits. If your son or daughter could benefit from a talk on the porch please reach out to myself or Mr. Jenkins and we will get a date on the calendar. tmonson@scappoose.k12.or.us or njenkins@scappoose.k12.or.us
