Good evening SEMS Families...

2.       Wednesday, September 17 at 6:30 PM is the Back to Band Night for parents of 6th grade band students.  Please attend this meeting in our PAC and learn about the band program!  Mr. McGhee and Ms. Kossler are excited to meet our new band parents!

3.       Thursday, September 18th is Back to School Night for parents of 7th and 8th graders. Your students will be bringing home Back to School information for you and they have written their class schedule for you to follow.  Back to School Night begins at 6:30 PM and parents must be seated in their child's period one classroom at that time.  If your child has a 0 period, please be in that classroom by 6:15 PM.  Parking will be difficult on this evening, so plan accordingly.  

4.       Fall sports night for all fall athletes and their parents is Tuesday, September 23 at 6:00pm in the Performing Arts Center (PAC).  After a 20 minute presentation by the Athletic Coordinator, John Livingston, teams will break up into their respective sports to review sport specific procedures and expectations.

5.       Friday, September 19 is Make-Up Picture Day for both students and staff.  For students, please go to the PAC during their lunch.  This is the second and last make-up day for all students.

6.       We understand that this week’s weather will be hot.  Our dynamic PE Department will adjust the activities of students based on anticipated weather, and they use their professional judgment on how they would want their child treated during different conditions.  If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s PE teacher.

Thank you for your attention to these announcements,
