SSMS Weekly Update

FEBRUARY 11, 2022

Hello SSMS Tiger Nation,

Thank you SSMS Families for the amazing Valentines Luncheon today. Your generosity and culinary talent is off the charts. The buffet of amazing soups, chilis, enchiladas, desserts, etc. was incredible! SSMS is so fortunate to have amazing parents and an incredible PTA that bolsters our staff with great food and such positivity. Have a great weekend!

PTA Announcements

APEX Fundraiser

Middle school fundraiser coming...for what you ask? Primarily, shade structure. Why don't they build schools in Texas with shade structures already? Here we are--and can only go forward, so please help. It's hard enough, these awkward years, without sun beating down on you/rain drizzled on making your hair frizz ...and it's Texas so sometimes that's all in the same 30 minutes. Please help our sweet students in the coming month!
