Hello Spanaway Middle School Families:
We are excited to begin another successful school year together! We are also excited to welcome our new assistant principal, Mrs. Kelsey (Carr) Brookman, and our new associate administrator, Mrs. Marnie Moore. We wish our previous assistant principal, Mr. Christopher Lezcano, all the best in his new position and thank him for his service to Spanaway Middle School!
As we prepare to begin the new school year, please note the important information below.
6th Grade WEB Orientation
At Warrior Nights you can get schedules and lockers; purchase PrideWear, yearbooks, ASB Cards, and Pay-to-Play; visit classrooms and meet teachers; and obtain iPad coverage and receive your iPad for the 2018 - 2019 School Year.
iPad forms can be completed online here, and iPads can be checked out at the library during Warrior Nights. You can also complete iPad forms at the library during Warrior Nights, but your wait time to check out will be reduced if you complete the forms prior to Warrior Nights.
This year, the library will be open for iPad check-out all day on the days of Warrior Nights from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on August 29 and August 30.
PrideWear guidelines have been updated and can be found here. Starting in August 2018, PrideWear will be available for purchase from The Lineup at 16219 Pacific Ave S Spanaway, WA 98387. PrideWear can also be purchased at the ASB Store and during Warrior Nights on August 29 and August 30.
Did you know that 1 in 7 U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year? And that students who miss 2 - 4 days in September will miss nearly a month of school? Attendance matters! At Spanaway Middle School, our goal is to to have every student in class every day so that they can be successful and reach their hopes and dreams. Additional information about the importance can be found at attendanceworks.org.
Enjoy the last month of summer and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you, Warriors!
