Mrs. Osler will be present to briefly meet with the parents of students with IEPs at this time.

This is a new procedure for picking up schedules! We no longer have a Saturday walk around or mail schedules home.

At this time, parents and students will fill out the first day packet, hand it in, pick up their student's schedule and be allowed to tour the building.

Parents and students new to Schmucker are welcome to hear the counselors speak and answer questions in the cafeteria on Monday, August 17 from 5:15 to 6:00pm. The 6th grade Meet and Greet will begin at 6:00pm. Students and parents will be able to meet all of their teachers at this time.

Our physicals at Schmucker will take place on Wednesday, May 20th starting at 4:00. The physicals will be performed in the boys and girls locker rooms at Schmucker Middle School. The cost of the physicals is $20.00. You may pay by check or cash. If you pay by check, please write the check out to Dr. John Graham
