Join the Club, Be a Pirate!

Happy New Year Pirate Families,

We had a great first week of 2019. Three days were packed with setting goals, rigorous curriculum, and preparing for the year ahead. On Friday, report cards were delivered to students in homeroom. Please ask your student to show you the report card and return the envelope and student information sheet to school as soon as possible.


We are excited to announce that free lunch for all students will continue through January 31st.


We will only host afterschool tutoring and buses on Tuesday this week.


At-risk conferences are scheduled for Thursday afternoon. The front office will be contacting families to schedule a time to come in to meet with teachers if your student did not pass one or more class the first nine weeks.


We will be conducting the first NC Check-In benchmark for 6th - 8th grade ELA on the morning of Monday, January 14th and the 6th-8th grade Math benchmark will be on the morning of Tuesday, January 15th. Students need to arrive on time and bring their laptop fully charged. We will be having an alternate schedule these days. No check-outs will occur until the benchmark testing is completed around 9:20am. 8th grade Science benchmarks will be given in class the same week.


Please continue to keep Mrs. Hobbs and her family in your thoughts and prayers. In the coming weeks, SBMS will inform our community with local fundraising options to help Mrs. Hobbs in the recovery process.
