Sunday Announcements



Good evening Shady Grove Middle School. This is Dr. Murray with your weekly announcements. I want to thank Ms. Rowell for leading our students in an amazing “Reinvent the Future” presentation yesterday. Our partnership with the KID Museum is a critical part of our instructional program.

As we entered into the fourth quarter, we received feedback from the community there was so confusing about grading practices. In the email version of this message the Academic team has provided Grading Clarification for the community.

We will be holding a SGMS Virtual Town Hall this Thursday from 7-8 pm. Later in the week we will be sending out information on how to access the meeting. We would like feedback from the community on this important piece in the email version of this message please click on the link: SGMS Virtual Town Hall to provide feedback for the Academic Team.

Finally, we will be holding a Virtual Spirit Week.  Thank you in advance to Ms. Schultz and the SGA for organizing this event.
