Dear Streetsboro Middle School Families and Friends,
It was great seeing every at conferences last week. If were not able to attend, please feel to contact your child’s teachers or me at any time with any questions or concerns that you may have. This week we will begin our only school fundraiser and have our Choir and Band concerts.
We have begun our first ever Dance-A-Thon! Students will bring home information on Monday. It will also be posted on the school webpage. *This is the only fundraiser for Streetsboro Middle School!*
Streetsboro Middle School is planning our Veterans Day celebration for November 9, 2108. The details of this event are currently being planned and implemented, but we need your help in one very important way; we would like you to help us create our guest list! Please fill out the Google Form linked below to help us invite special veterans in your life. We will send a special invitation on your behalf — all you need to do is provide us with his/her name and address. Do not worry if your veteran cannot attend; many veterans are honored just to receive this special invitation, so let it be a surprise.
We ask each student/family to invite no more than two veterans. Thank you in advance for helping make this annual event so memorable for our school and our veterans.
