SSMS Weekly Update

JANUARY 4, 2021

Dear SSMS Families,

Happy New Year! Students return to classes tomorrow for the spring semester. Thank you parents for all the amazing cookies and the incredible array of treats leading up to the holidays. Our staff is incredibly appreciative of the amazing support we receive from our community! Tomorrow is Wednesday so we will be on an "A" day schedule. Our teachers have been working hard this week to prepare for a successful start to 2022. We're very excited to see our students again tomorrow morning.

SSMS Counseling Transition in January

As we begin the new year, we have a staffing transition to announce. One of our counselors, Jennifer Burks, has accepted a counseling position outside of public schools and will not be returning. Ms. Caroselli will serve students in grades 6-8 during the interim while we search for a new counselor. We hope to find a new counselor soon. If you know of anyone that would be a good candidate for the position, please have them apply here.
