Friday Message

Happy Friday, Sharks!

The day almost got away from me! A full week here at SMS that is, as of now, still rolling on as we prepare for tonight’s Carnival. We expect a packed house for this event. Just a reminder that Carnival ends at 9:00 PM. Please make sure you are here to pick up your child at the end of the event. We will open the doors at 6 PM. Each grade uses a different entrance, so look for signs outside to help guide those who did not hear the announcements at lunch. We hope everyone has fun tonight.

The last 24 hours have been busy here at Sutherland. We had the 7th grade field trip to the Paramount today for the show. Students made it back and reported it was a great time. We also say welcome to next year’s Principal, Mrs. Megan Wood, who was appointed at last night’s School Board Meeting. If you have seen the press release, hopefully you saw that Mrs. Wood is very familiar with Sutherland as she served as an Instructional Coach here at SMS prior to becoming an assistant principal over at AHS. In addition, she has an extensive background as a middle school teacher, having taught at two other county middle schools.  Megan will make a great addition to the team!

Looking ahead to next week, we say hello to March. That happened quickly. We have a fairly normal week ahead, which means very few announcements this week. We will see a few of you this evening, but for those we miss: have a terrific weekend!
