Week of January 9th-Leading up to MLK holiday January 16th

"The time is always right to do what is right."

How perfect that we celebrate the life of MLK just at the start of the new year -- it offers the opportunity to make resolutions about the steps we each can take to foster a more just world.

We want you to be an active member of our SGMS community! How can you get involved?

Calendar Connections

2nd semester encore classes are being balanced with the transitions that have occurred from enrollments and withdrawals so your childs 2nd semester encore only schedule may be different that what they remembered in August. We will use their registration rankings to modify if a change is necessary. There will be no encore schedule changes for preference as priority rankings from registration is being used. 2nd semester classes will begin on 1/30.
