Principal's Message

  • March 15, 2019

    Hello Warrior Families:

    We have several celebrations to share this week! First, congratulations to all of our Solo/Ensemble choir students who participated in the contest on Saturday, March 9 at Clover Park High School! Way to represent Spanaway Middle School! We also held an art show on Wednesday, March 13 and several students were recognized for their exceptional art pieces with first, second, and third place awards, and the principal's award. Wednesday was also our building Battle of the Books, and we are excited to see our winning team represent Spanaway in the district Battle of the Books next week. Then, on Friday, we also celebrated and recognized students who demonstrated our character traits of Perseverance and Hard Work in our PBiS Assembly, and we kicked off our new character traits of Trust and Honesty. We will be looking for Warriors who demonstrate these two traits in the coming weeks. Finally, Trimester 2 now closed, finishing on March 15. Report cards will be mailed home shortly after the close of the trimester. Trimester 3 starts on Monday, March 18. Let’s finish strong, Warriors!

    SMS PrideWear Lending Closet

    We will be starting a Lending Closet for SMS PrideWear. Students who need to borrow PrideWear must see Mr. Stanley Bardoni, and the PrideWear will be checked out to them. The student must return the PrideWear within 90 days and in good condition or the student will be assessed a fine on their account.

    Attention: 7th Graders

    WEB Leadership is beginning their 2019 - 2020 WEB Leader recruitment for 7th graders going into 8th grade on Tuesday, March 5.

    Wanted: Snack Donations for State Testing

    The Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) test will begin in May, and we are asking that you consider donating snack items for distribution to students as they test. Items we are asking for include goldfish and pretzels. We appreciate anything you are willing to donate! Please bring them to the office.

    Wanted: Used PrideWear

    If you have PrideWear that is no longer needed, please consider donating it back to the school so that we have a stock of PrideWear that we can give to students in need. Additionally, if your child has borrowed PrideWear from the school at any point in the year, please encourage them to return the PrideWear to the school so that we can replenish our supply. Thank you!

    Have a great week!

    Mrs. Shannon Leatherwood,
