The SMS Quidditch Club has geared back up for second semester with a whole new set of promising players. Now that the Sorting Hat has had a chance to sort students onto their proper teams, we're ready to take to the field!
Ms. Lawrence and Mrs. Keefer have opened up SMS Quidditch Shirt orders to all SMS students and staff. This order is not limited to just current Quidditch Club members. Past players and other SMS Quidditch fans are welcome to order. The order form will close out on February 14th and shirts will be delivered to school and passed out to homerooms. Please see Mrs. Keefer or Ms. Lawrence with any questions.
We did a lot of planning and brainstorming during our January TLC meeting today. We have so many exciting things coming up this Spring and much to do in order to prepare. Students brainstormed ideas for upcoming school-wide activites such as March Book Madness, Book-Con, and a Spring Service Project, and also looked ahead at our next field trip and genres. Grade levels voted on the following genres to read before February's meeting:
Each grade level is gearing up to start book clubs in their Language Arts classes. Students will have the chance to choose one of eight novels and participate in a group book club with classmates. Today, our eighth graders had the opportunity to listen to book talks on all eight choices ... there was something for everyone and so many students left excited to start their new books! Sixth and seventh graders will have a chance to listen to their own book talks next week.
