We are busy at SMS getting ready to welcome our fabulous students for another great year!  Our custodians have the school looking fantastic, and teachers are working hard in classrooms to prepare for September 3rd.

We have had questions about our supply list over the summer.  Teachers reviewed the one binder system and chose to move away from this.  We have found it is easier for students to organize their subjects separately.  The supply list is below for you to use as you get ready for the new school year.

We are hoping that class lists will be posted by 4:00 on Friday, August 30th.  This is dependent on our final numbers after registration day.  For privacy reasons, last names will not be included, only initials.  Please do not take photos of class lists and post them on social media (also for privacy reasons).

A few dates are coming up quickly.  We hope to see you all at our Open House on September 12th at 5:00.  There will be a free bbq, a chance to see your child’s classroom, and a presentation in the gym.
