Now that the Thanksgiving break is over, I hope that you had the opportunity to spend it with family and friends being thankful for what is important in your life. I want to take a moment to highlight several events that occurred in November and what to look forward to during the month of December.
I wanted to thank all of the parents that visited our classrooms during American Education Week as well as during Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please be sure to contact your child’s teachers at any time if you have any questions about their performance at school. Your involvement in your child’s life is important to us. We are just an email or phone call away.
I wanted to thank all of the veteran’s that attended our second annual Veterans Appreciation Night facilitated by our student council at SMS. It was an honor to be present and speak with many of the veterans that evening. They all appreciated the recognition. I look forward to this recognition night growing next year.
I would like to congratulate all of the participants in the 2018 Spelling Bee. We will have four representatives participating in the regional qualification round. Congratulations to Bea Ricafort for being our Grand Champion.
Finally, I would like to congratulate Ms. Dempsey Murphy, 8th grade science teacher who was recently recognized by Brown’s Orchard as Teacher of the Month. Ms. Murphy was nominated by a student for taking the time to get to know her students.
