Dear Streetsboro Middle School Families and Friends,

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. Our students and teachers are still working very hard as we approach the Math AIR test and the end of the year festivities that await in May. As usual, thank you for your continued support.

We still need many more items in order for each of our students to have a snack and water during as we continue testing, so we are still requesting additional donations. Please read below for suggested items.

We are asking families to donate bottled water, and the following items:

Kellogg’s Rice Treats (Original)

Pop Tarts (Blue Boxes)

Cheese-Its (Original)

It is important that these items are pre-packaged, so we can remain in compliance with the district outside food policy. Please have you child deliver these items to office. Thank you in advance for assisting us in preparing our students to be more successful on their tests. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Math and Science Mania will be on Tuesday, April 16th! Please refer the link:

May 24th PD day and that students WILL NOT have school that day

On Thursday, May 30th (the last day of school), Streetsboro Middle School will have an 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony. The event will take place at Streetsboro High School, located at 8585 State Route 14. The ceremony will begin at 8:30am and end at 10:30am. Parents and other family members are welcome and encouraged to attend. The 8th grade students will report to school at the normal arrival time. They will be bused over to the high school for the ceremony. Upon completion of the 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony, the students will be dismissed to go home for the summer from the high school. Please mark your calendars now for the event, and I look forward to seeing you at the 8th Grade Promotion Ceremony.
