This Thursday night (5/19) is a Dual Language Program meeting for current 7th grade (6:45 PM) and incoming students (6:00PM). We will meet at Shute Park Library to talk about the program and share some dinner.
Next Wednesday night, 5/25, is an evening for current and incoming AVID students, as well as students identified as TAG to come learn about what SMMS has to offer in those areas. We will meet at 6:30 PM in the SMMS library. The following evening, Thursday the 26th, is the band/choir concert at 7:00. A previously scheduled parent chat will not take place that same evening.
And finally….. completion! This year we will have the completion assembly at 9:30 AM in the gym on Wednesday, June 15. There will be one assembly, which means 350 students in the bleachers and less room for parents to sit. Parents may attend of course, but please keep in mind that there is very limited parking, and even more limited seating. The assembly will likely last just over an hour. After the assembly we will release the students to the commons where they can visit with other students, take photos, and then have lunch. After lunch the students will continue their day going to periods 4-6. The previous day they will go to periods 1-3 and practice for the assembly in the afternoon.
Please keep in mind that the last Wed. of the year, June 15 (same day as completion), there is NO LATE START, so be sure students get to the bus on time! Thursday the 16th, students will be released at 12:15.

Preparing Students for High School and Beyond
January 2016 Edition
Here is a list of the opportunities we have for activities both before and after school:
1. Drama – currently play practice is underway so students cannot join to act, but if someone is interested in helping in another way, they can contact Mr. Stein for details.
2. Chess Club – Tuesday mornings at 7:30 AM in the library and is led by a former professional chess player, Mike Pittman. Players are needed, so come if you are interested!
3. Homework Club – Tuesday and Wednesday after school in room 110.
4. Battle of the Books – Thursday during advisory in the library. It may be too late to join, but check with Ms. Raglione.
5. Soccer and Volleyball – have been going on for a few weeks and it’s too late to join at this point. Basketball for boys and volleyball for girls will be our winter sports activities and I will send home the registration form when it becomes available.
6. Jazz band – Monday’s after school. See Mr. Massey if you are interested.
A couple of clubs students are asking for are break dancing and the Magic card game. Students are encouraged to begin a club if they have an interest, but they must have an adult advisor. If you are willing and able to supervise one of these clubs, please let Ms. Smith know (email@example.com), so that she can put you in touch with the students and come up with a plan. Also, if you have an idea for an after school activity, let her know and we’ll see if we can get some kids interested in joining. The more things we can offer after school the better it is for our students. Activity busses are available.
Are you aware of the Hillsboro School District app?
It is fairly new and you may not know about it...
The app is a wonderful way to get communication regarding the district and your school.
SMMS has begun pushing notifications out through the app to remind people about events, so you might find it useful.
Did you know, we have a facebook page?
If you haven’t joined, it’s another great way to network with other parents and also get info about events.
This is a closed group, so you will need to ask to join and be approved.
