Hello Spanaway Middle School Families:
Happy Spring! We kicked off Trimester 3 on March 19 and with the new trimester comes some new changes to our PrideWear policy, as well as important reminders for Spring 2018.
First, we are piloting a new change to our PrideWear policy this trimester, where we are allowing students to wear pants with non-PrideWear colors, sweatpants and athletic pants, and jeans with holes below the knee (unless there are leggings underneath). Leggings are allowed with shorts or skirts over them that are finger-tip length or longer. We are piloting these changes through Trimester 3 to determine if we will implement it in the 2018 - 2019 School Year.
Next, one of the most important events on our calendar for Spring 2018 is our state-standardized test, the Smarter Balanced Assessment. Our SBA schedule is currently on our website, and we look forward to seeing all of our Warriors do their very best on these important tests that will measure the skills and knowledge they have gained this year in Math, ELA, and for 8th grade, Science. Our expectation is that every Warrior is present, on time, and prepared for each day of testing, and that they arrive at school with a fully-charged iPad and headphones. Students following all directions, at school for each day of testing, and fully prepared will earn a Civi-Day from their proctoring teachers.
Finally, a reminder that Attendance Matters! It is important to be in school and on time each day, especially during Trimester 3 as we wrap up the school year.
Let’s finish the 2017 - 2018 School Year strong, Warriors!
