SBMS Weekly Updates

September 17, 2017

Happy Sunday Pirate Families!

Last week was another great week on the books in the boro'! Thank you to our families who took advantage of our first open house of the year. Congratulations to our football coaches and team for bringing home another victory on Tuesday evening. Congratulations to our softball coaches and team for bringing home their first game victory of the season on Tuesday as well! Our PTO held their first meeting of the year on Thursday evening. They are looking for ideas regarding their contribution to our school community this year. They renovated the concession stand as their 16/17 project. Please complete this survey regarding ideas:

Please note that interim reports go home on Monday. Parents should also be checking the weekly grade reports found under the first tab in student binders weekly and behavior punch cards on a daily basis. This week will also include softball at Trexler Middle School on Monday and football at Richlands High School on Tuesday, strategic planning, a home softball game against Southwest and Saltwater Grill family night on Wednesday, and our first early release professional development of the year on Thursday. All students will dismiss at 11:25 am and lunch will be served on Thursday. Our Pirate Parents are in need of volunteers to help coordinate the Fall Festival on October 27, 2017. They will hold a planning meeting on Thursday evening at 6 pm in the Pirate Parent building near the football fields if you are interested in helping.

We will begin running buses on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for students who are staying after school for tutoring or clubs. Please note that students staying after school for clubs or tutoring must sign up by 9:00 am on these days, whether they need transportation or not. They should see club sponsors or teachers regarding the schedule of days these programs will be offered. Please note that there will not be any clubs, tutoring or athletics on Thursday because of early release. Sign up at:
