Hello Spanaway Middle School Families,
Thank you for coming to our fall conferences. We enjoyed seeing everyone. Our students did a fabulous job sharing their progress and goals. Many of them were able to set goals for the year with you. This was a great time for them to begin understanding the importance of attending school and working hard. We sent out a conference survey for parents to fill out. Please take the time to complete this short survey. This helps us as we plan for the future.
Many times we ask our children how school went. The answer to our question is typically the similar. Are you tired of getting the same answer? Try some of these:
This week was our annual food drive for families. We would like to thank everyone who donated. We had a huge outpouring of donations. This will make a difference for many of our families and the community. Thank you!!

Have you noticed our attendance board as you come into our school? We have been over 90% almost every day this year. That means we have had most of our students attending school every day. Research shows we are more likely to graduate when our attendance in middle school is high. Thank you for sending your child(ren) to school.
From everyone at Spanaway Middle School, we wish you the best during the Thanksgiving holiday.
