A Note From Principal Danielson

Trees are starting to bud and flowers are not far behind, the weather has started to break and the sun is definitely a welcomed sight. As we slide into the end of the year, many events will be coming up quickly, so please be sure to check below for dates and times.

May31st-HS parent meeting at the Middle School

June 2nd: 7th/8th Grade Dance

June 8th: 8:00am-10am Awards Assembly

*This is different from years past and last year's 8th grade awards. It is our hope to honor many of our middle school students during this time. Students receiving an award will receive a letter home inviting parents to this assembly. All parents are welcome to attend.

June 9th: Last day of School-1/2 Day

Please continue to check your emails weekly for updates and coming events.

As we get into summer, it is always a good for kids to rest and play, but we don't want their brains to just sit either. Picking out a good summer read for the beach or pool, take some nature walks and talk about what you see, or taking meaningful trips with history or other educational ties are great ways to keep exercising the brain. Here is also an article with things for Middle Schoolers to do over the summer:

May 2nd, SPS will have a Headlee Restoration initiative on the ballot. Please see the flyer below for more information:

As always, if there is any way we can help, please do not hesitate to call or email.

Una nota de la directora Danielson

Los árboles están comenzando a brotar y las flores no se quedan atrás, el clima ha comenzado a mejorar y el sol definitivamente es un espectáculo bienvenido. A medida que nos acercamos al final del año, muchas cosas surgirán rápidamente, así que asegúrese de verificar las fechas y horarios a continuación.

Un par de fechas a tener en cuenta:

2 de junio: baile de los grados 7 y 8

8 de junio: Asamblea de premios 6-8

9 de junio: último día de clases-1/2 día

A medida que nos acercamos al verano, siempre es una buena idea que tus hijos descansen, pero tampoco queremos que sus cerebros se queden sentados. Elegir una buena lectura de verano para la playa o la piscina, dar algunos paseos por la naturaleza y hablar sobre lo que ve, o hacer viajes significativos con la historia u otros lazos es una excelente manera de seguir ejercitando el cerebro. Aquí también hay un artículo con cosas que los estudiantes de secundaria pueden hacer durante el verano:

Como siempre, si hay alguna manera en que podamos ayudar, no dude en llamar o enviar un correo electrónico.

Sra. Danielson

School Counselor's Corner - A message from Ms. Sly and Mrs. Dobben

Spring Break is over and it's time to finish the school year strong! Wrapping up means testing (NWEA, M-Step, and PSAT8), making summer plans, and looking ahead to next year. For our 8th grade students, this process started last week when Mrs. Gauthier, the high school counselor, stopped by Mr. Curtis's classroom to review course requirements for next year as well as the importance of GPA and having good grades. Students were also walked through an initial stage of course selection and instructed to take home their course selection sheets for your review and signature. Please make sure students return these sheets to the middle school office as soon as possible so that their courses can be scheduled for next year. The remainder of the school will be completing course selections in the coming weeks.
