SCMS Hoof Prints

September Edition

Welcome Colt Families!

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to thank you for a great first week with your students and welcome you to the Summer Creek Middle School family! The SCMS staff is looking forward to an outstanding year as we work together in continuing the tradition of success that has set Summer Creek on a path of excellence. We offer many opportunities for our parents and students to get involved and encourage you to partner with us during these middle school years.

From our monthly "Hoof Prints" newsletter to Facebook and/or Skyward Access, you will receive several forms of communicaiton throughout the school year outlining upcoming events, important reminders and updates, as well as opportunities to get involved. Research shows that parental involvement has a direct correlation to the acadmic success of both the student and the school.

Our first Parent Involvement event, "Meet the Teacher/Curriculum Preview" will be held on Monday, September 14th at 6:00 p.m. On this evening, you will have an opportunity to meet the indiviudals in each of our departments and preview what to expect in the classrooms during the upcoming school year.

We look forward to working in partnership with all of our Summer Creek families and hope to meet each of your soon!

Partners in Education.
