New Wednesday Schedule Coming!
As we start second semester at SMS, I want to say thank you to our middle school parents. We appreciate your support, understanding and advocacy for your children. In our continued efforts to meet the ever changing needs of our students, and in order to execute our middle school educational initiatives, we will be adjusting our school schedule on Wednesdays. Students will still have all 8 classes, but classes will be shortened from 50 minutes to 44 minutes. At 2:00, students will attend various educational activities. These activities will include but are not limited to: MAP preparation, reading intervention, extra assistance, work completion, student led school organization meetings, sustained silent reading, character education, counseling lessons, community projects, etc. These are non-graded activities that are designed for enrichment, intervention and/or personal growth. In addition, during this time we will be providing collaboration and professional development opportunities for a portion of our staff. Wednesday, January 18th, will be our first day to implement this schedule. Please contact Mr. Winterboer or Mrs. Marchetti with any questions.
