The UN is ON!
Good luck to all of our fUNdraiser participants! We're hoping to collect $5000 in donations in the next week. Check with family, friends, and neighbors you know and see if they would like to donate to our school!
Items for the SMS Spirit Store EXCLUSIVE Incentive program are showcased in the main hall. Check it out if you want a closer look at any of the items. To clarify, the price amount on your info sheet is the amount you need to raise to get that item. If something 'costs' $110, 85% of that is profit for the school and 15% is actually the cost of the item. The more donations you can generate, the more buying power you have in the spirit store.
See Miss Nass if you have any questions! Turn in any/all donations to the SMS office by Friday, October 2nd. We'll count our donations and then invite you in to 'shop, shop, shop!'
Raptor Security Check Starts Monday
We are testing the system now and will go to full implementation on Monday. Please let your parents and guardians know to bring in purse/wallet each time they visit SMS during the school day. Thanks!
Congratulations to the students that attended the Student-Led Conference night.
Congratulations to Jaylah Mays for setting the 8th grade girls PE mile record (6:01).
Congratulations to the Builders' Club on receiving a DISTINGUISHED CLUB award!
School Picture Day Tuesday
There are two reasons we want EVERYONE to have a picture taken. First, the SMS yearbook will be produced (and available for purchase) in the spring. Second, we are considering the use of SMS Student ID badges. If we get them this year, we'll need to have your school picture! A make up day is scheduled for November for any student that is absent on picture day.
Does anybody have a guess at the identity of the school picture? It is a celebrity that is very well known in the entertainment business.
All three of these participant types are impacted in a bullying incident. What do you think happens to people who bully, targets of bullying, and bystanders? We'll be investigating the impact of bullying in a Connect lesson next week.
SMS is a Hub of Learning!
Tonight/Sept. 25- The Annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner for Scott County Democrats will be held in our cafeteria. We'll set up for this after school.
Monday/Sept. 28- We'll have a regional Five-Star Pivot training in the Great Room. We'll need to enter and exit the cafeteria through the side doors.
Wednesday/Sept. 30- We'll have a regional Indiana Department of Education Digital Curriculum Training meeting in the Great Room. We'll use the side cafeteria doors again.
We are proud to welcome regional and local guests to our building! Thanks for being great representatives of our school family. Thanks for helping us write #ourstory!
