It is hard to believe we have begun our final marking period of the school year. STMS was a very busy place during the last nine weeks. We concluded our winter sports season and jumped right into our spring sports. We had 97 students participate in a fantastic production of Legally Blond the Musical, Jr. Our orchestra students treated us to an awesome concert and then performed at the State Capital. Students competed in our National Geography Bee, the Capital Area Science and Engineering Fair, and the Dauphin County Select Chorus. We ended the marking period with our first annual Family Science and Math Night. This successful event found STMS students presenting hands-on science activities to elementary students and middle school peers. Students also participated in science activities presented by staff from both STMS and Harrisburg University.
Our Family Science Night was a great way to end the 3rd marking period. Our Family Science Night also demonstrated the power of collaboration. Good things happen for our students when teachers, parents, and community members all collaborate. Looking forward, STMS is hosting our first annual 8th Grade Career Fair on Wednesday, May 3rd. This is another program that is being developed for the benefit of our students. We are looking for parents and community members willing to participate in our Career Fair. Please contact Mrs. Staudenmaier at 657-5125 if you are interested in presenting your career field at our Career Fair.
Another opportunity for collaboration that benefits all STMS students is to join our PTSO. The PTSO is a wonderful organization that supports students and staff throughout the school year. Everything from our A.R.R.O.W.S. prizes to our upcoming Dodgeball Tournament only happen through support from the PTSO. It is never too late to join! Please contact Mrs. Lori Shienvold at email@example.com for more information on becoming an active member of our PTSO.
Collaboration with our parents and guardians is critical to our success at STMS. We also rely on feedback from our parents and guardians to help us improve what we do at STMS. Please take a few minutes to complete our Parent Survey. The link to this important survey can be found on our school website and will be emailed out in mid-April. Completing this survey is a simple way to collaborate
with us, helping us to improve how we serve our customers, the student of STMS.
I look forward to seeing you at one of our many upcoming events such as our spring band, orchestra, and chorus concerts, the 8th grade career fair, or our end of the year STMS dance. Good things continue to happen at STMS when staff and parents collaborate and keep our focus on our students.
