SSMS Weekly Update
JANUARY 28, 2021
Dear SSMS Families,
We've had another excellent week at Sycamore Springs Middle School. We're seeing a positive trend in attendance for both students and staff. During the first semester we hit an all time high for our annual attendance rate at 98.4%. This is an amazing accomplishment and we look forward to outstanding numbers for the spring semester now that we are getting past the peak of the Omicron variant. For students who have been out recently, please be sure to see the note below about making up assignments. Have an outstanding weekend!

SSMS Staff Valentine Luncheon
Parents, Patrons, and Caregivers! We've survived Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the winter holidays, but we've entered the post New Year doldrums. Please help us show our SSMS teachers and staff some well-deserved appreciation! Let's fill their hearts and bellies by showcasing your favorite warm dishes and desserts.
Sign up here (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0D4AAFA622A1FF2-ssms) to bring in something in a Crockpot / Instant Pot or dessert on February 11th! Lots of smaller items too…
Please also consider a plant or flower arrangement that will be drawn for at the end of the day (the staff and students LOVE this - the lucky names will be called over the intercom!). Donations can be brought in during drop-off, or before 9:30am and hardware / leftovers can be picked up after 1:30pm. This will truly put a little pep in their steps, and we sure do love our SSMS!
