The Bullying Prevention Workshop for parents will immediately follow the PTA meeting, at approximately 6:45pm. Please see the flyer below and RSVP. The workshop is a timely complement to the bullying prevention and digital citizenship program that SPMS’s Train Your Brain team is currently delivering to classrooms. Parents, now is a good time to talk to your students about these topics. 6th and 7th graders have completed the program, and 8th graders will receive it next week.
For 8th Grade Parents:
For the second year in a row, the 8th graders have voted for a Universal Studios Grad Night adventure instead of a traditional promotion party. The trip will be on Friday May 3, 2024. Purchase a ticket and Learn More at spmspta.org/gradnight. Please purchase by December 1st.
LIBRARY CORNER – NOVEMBER BOOK RECS
MS. BARANETS, SPMS LIBRARY
I have a modest little book display set up at the library’s central round table. The table’s covered with an oatmeal colored tablecloth and has a couple of pumpkin themed runners criss-crossing over the top. If you squint your eyes and stand far away, it looks a little like a Thanksgiving table.
Like a Thanksgiving table, it’s covered in things that I love: books about cooking and books about families. It’s one of my favorite displays of the year and just so kids don’t think it’s only a decoration, I have my usual “Yes, you can check these books out!” sign taped to the bottom.
