A big Clipper welcome back to all the students at SSMS.

Greetings from the desk of Mr. Buzzard:

I began last month's message happy that we had finally reached a spring month with spring temperatures surely right around the corner.............WRONG!! March continued this winter's cold weather and of course gave us more snow. So with a positive outlook we welcome April and what has to show up this month........WARM WEATHER!!

As you can see, I am sick of winter and in need of spring to show up in a big way. With my hopes and wishes in mind let's get down to what we know for sure will happen this month.

TRACK. The SSMS track teams will open their seasons on April 9th with a home meet starting at 5:00 PM. Good luck to both teams. SSMS schedule is posted on the District Calendar.

SPRING VACATION. With the use of our blizzard bags, we are one of the few schools that still have a spring vacation on the schedule. School will be closed from Friday, April 18th through Monday, April 21st. School resumes on Tuesday, April 22nd.

OAA TESTING. Students will be taking their state OAA tests beginning on Monday, April 28th. Be sure your little Clippers are getting a good night's sleep and if possible eating breakfast. Being in school during the testing period is also very important as students tend to not score as well when taking a make-up test. The schedule is:

4/28- 7th grade LA.

4/29- 6th and 8th grade LA.

4/30- 6th and 7th grade Math.

5/1- 8th grade Math.

5/2- Make up day for all tests

5/5- 8th grade Science.
