Greetings from the desk of Mr. Buzzard:
HAPPY NEW YEAR! It is the hope of the SSMS staff that 2015 brings both you and us a joyous and successful year. School begins again on January 5th. We will have 2 full weeks and be at the half way point of the school year as the 2nd nine weeks comes to an end on January 16th. The 16th also brings us the start of a long weekend as we will not have school on the 19th for Martin Luther King Day.
The 3rd nine weeks will begin on the 20th and we will begin final preparations for our first round ever of the new PARCC state tests in February. We will be giving more information next month on the procedures and dates of testing.
January will also bring us some bad weather. Let us know if you have any problems receiving information through our all call system. Our first 5 snow days will be as they have always been with no work assigned. Snow days 6,7,and 8 (if we have them) will be blizzard bag days with the students be given work to do in place of going to school extra days in the summer. Any days over 8 may require days being added on at the end of the year.
Stay warm and be safe. Spring will be here before you know it!
As always......Go Clips!!!!
