SCMS - At Home Newsletter
A resource for our families
Updated May 11, 2020
We are hosting a Drive Thru and Drop Off Week May 11th - May 15th and May 18th for our families. See the attached flyer below.
Please return AMI packets and course selection forms to Star City Middle School. If you completed a 2020-2021 course selection form online, it is not necessary to complete a paper copy but it is okay if you choose to do so!
Our last week of AMI is a family fun activity - Bullpup Life Skills Challenge (SEE BELOW!!!!)
In case you need access to any days of the AMI, these can be found in Google Classroom as well.
Here is a guide for the AMI:
Days 1-10 (March 16-20)
Days 11-20 (March 30 - April 24)
Days 21-35 (April 27 - May 15)
AMI packets may be dropped off at the main entrance of Star City Middle School. Be sure and put your child's name on the packet. Also, students may submit AMI in any electronic format. A couple of options could include: taking pictures and sending via email or sharing documents in Google. Students can contact teachers for options to make this process easy and stress-free for both students and parents.
Need additional support or resources: Check out options here in the newsletter, in your child's Google Classroom or on your child's grade level Facebook page.
We certainly know there is a lot going on right now but our teachers and staff are here to support our students. Students can send their administrators, teachers, counselors, or staff an email for support at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also find additional links on this page with resources about Covid-19 to help you talk to your child. You can also find information at starcityschools.org.
Feel free to reach out to any of our staff of our members through e-mail if you any questions or concerns along the way. We are here to help in any way we can. We can be reached at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are #SCMSstrong!

BULLPUP LIFE SKILLS CHALLENGE!!!
We are making course selections for the 2020/2021 school year. Students can access their forms in Google Classroom.
During this time, I strongly recommend if students can complete their iReady lessons this will keep them moving in the right direction. We set at least a 70% pass rate for our students in their lessons and would encourage our students to keep up their great pass rates!!!
iReady keeps great reports for our students. Please have your student login and explore their performance. If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please contact me at email@example.com.
Si necesita ayuda, comuníquese con el director Richard por correo electrónico: firstname.lastname@example.org en español.
Gracias por su compresio'n.
