Stingray Scoop

March 2021

From the Principal's Desk

We have many great things happening at Storm Grove Middle School as we head into the last part of the year!


The 4th quarter began on March 15th. Please remind your students to stay focused to finish the school year strong.


Since January, we are proud to have raised over $1,700 for good causes, including Relay for Life, the Storm Grove PBIS program, and Earth Day initiatives.


We want all students to start the day ready to learn. All students should be in Homebase by 7:50 a.m.


SGMS hosted Vero Beach High and Sebastian River High for "Incoming 9th Grade Nights." The well-attended events allowed our students to hear about the programs each school offers. Eighth graders are currently registering for high school courses. If you have any questions, please call your child's guidance counselor.


FSA testing is right around the corner, beginning with writing in April and reading, math, science, and civics in May. All students are expected to participate. For more information, visit https://fsassessments.org/users/students-and-families.stml or call our testing coordinator, Ms. Foster, at 564-6327.

Water Bottle Filling Stations

Water bottle filling stations are available on campus for students to refill their own re-usable water bottles throughout the day. Please make sure your students do not forget their refillable bottles. So far, SGMS has saved almost 19,000 water bottles by using the refilling stations.


Thank you to our PTSA for helping us purchase several of them for our campus!

Covid-19 Updates

To continue to keep our students and staff safe and healthy, please remind your child to wear a mask, socially distance, and wash their hands frequently during the day. If your child is showing symptoms, please keep them home.

LEGO Robots in Computer Science

Mrs. Council's students are coding LEGO robots! Students learned to code their driving base to move within a square using 90 degree turns. Not only are students having fun, they are learning to code!
