Principal's Message

  • Hello Warrior Families:

    Thank you once again for all your flexibility with the various schedule changes this month as we dealt with inclement weather and a multi-day holiday. We know that with inconsistent schedules students are more anxious and unsettled, and that it can impact student success at school. We are excited to return to our normal schedules as we approach the end of Trimester 2.

    Stay strong, Warriors!

    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!

    Stay Healthy!

    Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, and it can last as late as May. During this time we want to remind you that keeping your student home when they are sick is an important way to help prevent the spread of germs that cause illnesses.

    Learn more here → and here → Remember that hand-washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of illness! Here is a video or two for more information.

    Have a great week!

    Mrs. Shannon Leatherwood,

    Spanaway Middle School
