2021-2022 Student Registrations
Please return the completed registration forms as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the registrations, don't hesitate to contact the school, 204-326-6481. If your child will not be attending SMS next year, please send a note so that we can make those adjustments in our records. Thank you!
Putting class lists together for the next year is done with a lot of thought and planning and making changes after the classes are arranged can be challenging. If you should happen to have a teacher request for your child, you may indicate that on the registration forms (or you can call or email the school). We cannot guarantee that you will get the teacher you requested, but we will take your suggestions into serious consideration as we make up the new class lists. Thank you for your understanding.
Learning Forward June 2021
The purpose of these Learning Forward Days will be to collect assessment information about each child to assist next year’s teachers in understanding each child’s academic progress and social-emotional well-being. This is particularly important after a year of multiple adjustments in learning environments.
We are in the process of scheduling your child's Learning Forward Day and a confirmation letter/email will be sent home informing you of the date your child will attend. That information will also be available through the Parent Portal.
If you have a special request regarding the day you would prefer your child to attend, please call 204-326-6481 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to accommodate your requests.
Also, don't forget that it is law that anyone under the age of 18 should be wearing a bike helmet.
SMS Dress Code
~Students should dress appropriately for a school setting.
~Hoods may be worn outside only; hats may be worn in class if teachers are in agreement.
~Offensive language/pictures on clothing is not permitted (swearing, references to drugs, alcohol or sexual comments).
~Perfumes and colognes are not permitted in the building due to severe allergies.
~Flip-flops and open-toed shoes are not permitted in the gym for safety reasons.
If you are not sure about your clothing, please ask a staff member.
Lunch Hour at SMS
Students are required to stay on campus during lunch unless they're going home.
Due to public health orders, students may only go to their own home. Therefore students are not permitted to go to a friend's house for lunch as this is a violation of Public Health Orders.
We acknowledge that this is difficult, but for the safety of our students and staff, please ensure that your child respects this direction from Public Health.
From A Knight's View
What's New for April
This month was a good month,
Super nice and smooth
And Stonybrook did pretty good things too!
The schedule changed for the Grade Sevens and Eights,
They go to school every day now
Their fun awaits!
Poetry was this month's them as well,
People are making poems everywhere.
Everything is going swell!
Red Cross Pink Day is another day to celebrate,
It's for anti-bullying
And to tell the bullied everything's going to be great.
