A Week in Review

We had another great week at SBMS. It truly took teamwork and positive attitudes to make this week such a success. Our fun filled week started Wednesday when we celebrated the academic success of our students with the PRIDE event on base and a cook out at the park. This event was organized by Tiffany and Carrie! A huge shout out to each of you for your attention to detail and making this event great. All of you who chaperoned, drove a bus, grilled the food, covered a class and assisted in any way, a huge Thank You!!!

Thursday we celebrated our 8th graders with their dance, The 8th grade team did a fabulous job at planning, decorating and chaperoning the event. A huge thank you to the entire 8th grade team and those teachers in others grades who came out to support the event. The kids had loads of fun and looked stunning. I believe Ms. Getsinger danced down the "Soul Train Line" and Ms. Meyer and Mrs. O'Brien out danced the students on the dance floor.

We ended the week with a trip to Carowinds for our top PRIDE students. A huge shout out again to Tiffany, Carrie and Mr. Mabry for making this event a huge hit for the kids. Also much thanks to Mr. Amenta and Mrs. Zimmerman for driving the bus for 11 hours and chaperoning the kiddos in the park. Each of you were uplifting, positive and young at heart! The kids loved having you on the trip.

Great Article on School Climate

This is a timely article on school climate. It is great and short read. This article requires self reflection and ownership in school climate.
