SBMS Weekly Updates

February 4, 2018

Good Afternoon Pirate Families,

It was a tremendous week in the boro'! Congratulations to our Math Counts Team who won 2nd place in the district competition on Thursday and great job to our basketball teams who played well against Jacksonville Commons on Tuesday and who won both games at Dixon on Wednesday. Our band and orchestra programs continue to dazzle audiences at All District Band in Greenville and All County Orchestra in Jacksonville yesterday. We also took over 700 students to Defy Gravity in Wilmington this week to celebrate outstanding behavior. Students are working this 3rd 9 weeks towards a trip and bbq at Hammocks Beach State Park. We have so much to be proud of in the boro' as our student and teachers continue to set the bar in academics, performing arts, athletics and great behavior.


This is an exciting week in the boro' as we will wrap up our basketball season with our last regular season game at Hunters Creek on Tuesday. Semi finals will be held on Thursday and we will host the basketball tournament on Saturday on our campus. This will be an exciting day not to be missed in our community. Additional dates to note this week include Papa John's Pizza night on Tuesday. This will be a special fundraiser for the Cole Family. Mr. Cole is a teacher at SBMS and his wife is a teacher at SBE. She suffered a heart attack last month and we will be donating all proceeds generated from this fundraiser to help with medical bills. SBE will also donate the proceeds generated from their Pizza Hut night this month to the Cole family. So please plan on getting pizza for dinner on Tuesday and supporting a great family in our community. Our Pirate Parents will host a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon on Wednesday and All County Chorus is next weekend. Please contract our front office if you are able to assist with the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon.


Can you believe that we have already passed the halfway point in the year? Students brought home report cards at the end of last week but remember you can view grades at anytime with a Parent Portal account or by simply asking your student to show you their grades in PowerSchools. Students also bring home weekly grade reports that you should be reviewing and signing on a weekly basis and you should be checking behavior punch cards regularly as well.
