SBMS Weekly Updates

September 24, 2017

Happy Sunday Pirate Families,

Last week was a tremendous week in the boro'! Congrats to our football and softball teams who continue to set the bar for dedication and sportsmanship for middle school athletics. Our Pirate Parents are busy working on Fall Festival preparations and met again last week to plan for this event. Please mark your calendars for our Fall Festival on October 27, 2017. They need volunteers to help make this event a success. The next planning meeting will be held on Thursday evening at 6 pm in the Pirate Parent building. They are also looking for ideas regarding their contribution to our school community this year. They renovated the concession stand as their 16/17 project. Please complete this survey regarding ideas:

This week in the boro' will include a home softball game on Monday against New Bridge, a home football game on Tuesday against SWMS and an away softball game at DMS, an away softball game on Thursday at NWPMS and a PRIDE dance Friday. Our band will also team with the SBHS band and play at their football game on Friday night. Our first science club interest meeting will be held this Tuesday after school in the PDC. Students must sign up to stay after school for clubs or tutoring using the link:

A special thank you to Nikki Panos of Lake Nichole Salon in Cedar Point for sponsoring our home football game this Tuesday night. We appreciate your support for our athletic programs. Parent volunteers are needed to help in the Pirate Shoppe in the mornings from 6:55-7:15 am. Please call the school office at (910) 326-3601 if you are able to help. We are also collecting box tops. Please send in your box tops in Ziploc bags which can be deposited in the box top mailboxes in either the front office or the 6th grade office.
