Attention Parents of 8th Graders
It’s not too late to turn in fees for the 8th grade celebration and t-shirt. You will be able to pay for the activities and collect your child’s shirt before or after either of the two upcoming 9th grade information sessions taking place on January 22nd and February 15th at 6:30pm. In addition to cash and checks, payment can be made by debit or credit card.
We are planning activities to celebrate the end of middle school for our 8th graders. In keeping with tradition, this send-off will consist of several things:

Seeking PTA Volunteers for 2018-19
Our SMS PTA will begin seeking parent volunteers for our 2018/19 school year starting in January 2018. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in joining our PTA board or learning more about positions available.
We strive to allow our volunteers the opportunity to "shadow" and train with our current volunteers so the transition is smooth. Our board will be seeking a new secretary and treasurer (and possibly more) as these important positions are currently held by an 8th grade (graduating) parent.
We hope to hear from you!
