Stanley Middle School
Week of March 14
CAR LINE DISMISSAL CHANGES
FOR PARENTS/GRANDPARENTS/SIBLINGS/FRIENDS doing the pick up nothing changes for you. You just keep doing what you have done all year. You stay in the line you have always been in.
What does change is that we will not be entering names, we will dismissal all car riders to come outside at 3:30.
We will dismiss Fast Pass and Walkers at 3:25 to get them moving out front.
Remind your students to go ahead and be on the correct side when they come outside (we will remind them too).
Remind your students to be looking for you and to get in your car as you are in a loading area.
The pace of the line will be dependent on your students paying attention and getting in your car.
Buses and Masks
Donations needed for the MakerSpace: This will go towards school-wide STEAM activities.
- Toilet paper rolls/Paper Towel rolls
- Empty, 2-liter bottles (cleaned out and label off)
You can send this with your student at anytime or bring them with you on conference night.
Beginning March 17 (first day of the last nine weeks) any student who has NO ISS, OSS, or Bus Suspension and no more than ONE Rebound will be eligible to attend a grade level social time at the end of the year after EOG/EOC testing is complete.
It will be a time of fun, games, yearbook signing, concessions to be purchased, music, laughter and social time.
Everyone is eligible to earn this reward and we hope to see all our students participate.
THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US AT SMS TO OUR FAMILIES WHO GAVE SO GENEROUSLY TO OUR TEACHERS.
