Just about done with another great week here at Sutherland! Last week, we had our first dance. The students brought a LOT of energy to the table and I am sure were still wound up afterwards. A big thank you to our parent volunteers who came out and assisted in selling concessions or helped chaperone. Our first interim period came to an end last Friday as well, so grades should be rolling in through ParentPortal. We have our first ICA schedule today, so classes are shortened to make room for an extended recess from 3:00 – 4:00 PM. Students will be spread out all over our campus as they participate in kickball, nature hikes, crafts, and other assorted activities. A few items for your radar coming up:
- Monday, September 29th: No school for students. This is a teacher work day, so the staff will be here, but your kids get to sleep in.
- Tuesday, September 30th will be a Teal day when students return.
- Thursday, October 2nd:
- All-County Orchestra trip for selected students…see Ms. Finnegan for details
- 4:30 – 8:00 PM Parent-Teacher Conferences. There are still a few spots available on the Sign-Up Genius http://www2.k12albemarle.org/school/SMS/Documents/Conference%20Directions.pdf
The next two weeks are busy one, Sharks, so keep an eye on the SMS homepage for more news about upcoming events. Have a great weekend!
