Dear Families and Students,

Hello fall!  1st Qtr. has come and gone and with it many, many, hours of learning for students and staff alike.  Not only have our students spent time in their academics but we have all learned what online learning looks and feels like.  We have grown together as we have navigated the nuances of our Chromebooks, Zoom classrooms and Google Classroom not to mention the great resources our curriculum provides.

Students across grades are participating in band, music, culture, technology, and PE. This Qtr. we have been able to provide students with guitars and welcome them into the guitar class with Mr. Trotter and Mrs. Kennedy. Weekly jam sessions are alive and well at SMS!

Mr. Suarnaba has begun math tutoring for our 7th and 8th grade students.  He has open hours each day of the week including Saturday and Sunday. See the attached flyer for more information.

Mr. Herold is also hosting extra support after school at 3:00p.m. Monday-Thursday to help students who want additional support on assignments or projects.

Students are not required to attend after school tutoring or support, but are encouraged to attend as needed.

Mr. Herold has also introduced fun and inspiring projects for students such as the Space at Home Launch Kit from the non-profit, Higher Orbits.  Each kit has several STEM and STEAM activities that include materials and Zoom link for live and recorded instruction.  This project will also include at least two live webinars with astronauts and students will be encouraged to send their questions for the astronauts to answer during the webinars.  Ten kits were delivered by Mr. Herold and Mrs. Pedro to students who were nominated by their teachers. Mr. Herold reports that students were very excited and began reaching out to him before he got back to school.

Students are also excited to be producing our daily announcements.  During online learning the announcements are recorded but students will go live when we return to in-person learning.

An exciting piece of our daily announcements is to have the Pledge of Allegiance led both in Pima and in English.
 
 

We have also been actively updating our Return to School Plan as we patiently wait for students to return in-person. You can read the most current iteration of our plan here.

Your partner in education,
 
Mrs. Cindy Lewis
Principal
