Dear Streetsboro Middle School Families and Friends,

This is the last week before Spring Break and also the last week of instruction before AIR testing. Our students and teachers have been working very hard to prepare for assessments. Please enjoy the break! We look forward to seeing our students back on April 1st, rested, ready and eager to be successful on the test!

Thank you all for the donations that have been coming in for the AIR tests. Because we have an additional grade this year, we still need many more items in order for each of our students to have a snack and water during testing, so we are still asking for additional donations. Please read below for suggested items.

Please remember, we expect students to eat a healthy breakfast at home or in the morning in our cafeteria when they arrive every day, but especially on testing day. Sleep is Fuel!

AIR Testing

SMS is preparing for the upcoming AIR Test. All  students will take the English/Language Arts test on April 3rd and 4th, the Math test on April 24th and 25th and ONLY 8th graders will take the Science test on May 1st.  Studies have shown that students who get enough sleep and fuel their bodies properly perform better than those who are tired and hungry.  In addition to making sure that your child goes to bed early the night before the tests and eats a healthy breakfast at home, we would like to offer students a snack at school before the test.

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

Kellogg’s Rice Treats (Original)

Pop Tarts (Blue Boxes)

Cheese-Its (Original)

Cheerio Cereal Bars

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.

This week:

Monday, March 18th – Please join us at Chipotle for dinner on Monday, March 18th between 4:00 and 8:00 pm. Please show them the flier listed in the link below and 33% of the proceeds will go toward the trip. We hope to see you there!

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.
