Hello SMS Families!
It has been a great week at SMS!
Just a reminder that Monday, October 3rd is a professional development day for teachers. There will be no school for students that day.
Also, next Friday (October 7th) will be our Color Run. Students who donated/raised at least $30 will be able to participate during the last few hours of the school day.
Have a great weekend!

Afternoon Parent Pickup - Please Read
Also, we ask that all afternoon dismissal parent pick-up parents arrive before our 3pm dismissal. Starting next week all vehicles that arrive after we dismiss students from the building will be stopped at the crosswalk and held until all buses are dismissed.
Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.
High School Football Games - Middle School Students
Thanks for your cooperation.
Join us every Thursday after school from 3:00 pm until 3:50 pm for SMS Gaming Club! Students will engage in Card/Board games that challenge their strategic skills. Games being played will include Pokemon, Yu-gi-oh, Magic, Chess, Pathfinders, Settlers of Catan and many others. There are NO electronic games allowed in Gaming Club. We want to teach kids to interact without their phones. Games teach students how to settle conflicts, how to take turns, how to have patience, and how to interact appropriately. No need to sign up beforehand, just show up and check in with Mrs. Wason and Mrs. Willard!
SMS Color Run
The SMS Color Run will be the afternoon of Friday, October 7th. Students will receive their packet of color that day. Also, those who raised over $50 will receive their SMS Color Run T-shirts before the event. More specifics will be communicated out in the next few weeks on other incentive levels including the VIP Lunch Field Trip.
While the opportunity to donate and qualify for the incentives has passed, any student who would still like to participate in the Color Run during the day on the October 7th can still donate $30 until the day before the run and join in the fun! Follow the link below to sign up.
SMS Archery Team
The Seckman Middle School Archery Team Tryouts will begin on October 6th. This is open to any 6th , 7th, and 8th grader that wants to compete for a place on the team. We have all the equipment needed but archers can bring their own Genesis bows if they have them. No other type of bow is allowed.
Tryouts are on Thursdays and will end on October 20th. Team members will be chosen based on performance during the month. Those that make the team will be competing in 9 to 12 tournaments throughout the rest of the school year.
There is no charge to participate in the tryouts but the team does incur a nominal cost.
We will meet after school on Thursdays in the Seckman Middle School gym until 4:15.
If you are interested in Archery and want to have fun with your friends, come try out for the
SMS Archery Team!
Participants must fill out the permission form below and return to Coach Reed or Coach Sattley by October 5th.
