Incoming 6th Grade Orientation

Moving into middle school can be exciting and challenging! To help make the transition easier, SPMS has provided a resource page. If you missed the Tour with the Principal and the Incoming Parent Night, don’t worry!

*2018-2019  6th Grade WEB Orientation — Monday, August 13, 2018 from 8am to 1pm*

Incoming 6th Graders meet with W.E.B. Leaders (Where Everyone Belongs) a few days before school starts.  This is a great time for students to meet each other and get to know their WEB Leader who will be with them throughout the entire year as support.

*6th Grade Parent Orientation — Monday, August 13, 2018 from 8am to 9am-ish*

The same morning after dropping off student(s), parents can hear presentations given by Principal Kubela, counselors, and office staff (no teachers).  This morning’s presentations will include how the school works, what is expected by student and yourselves, the support systems offered, rules and regulations, and more.

Going Back to School

*Club Night at the PTA General Assembly Night*

Do you know what extra-curricular clubs are available to students at SMPS? Do you know when they meet? What is the criteria for joining? What do they do?
“Club Night” will be PTA’s first General Assembly meeting this year, Wednesday August 29 at 7:00p.m. — and it is all about clubs! Art, Building, Christian Fellowship, Drama, Math, Music, Broadcast Journalism, Tigerettes, Yearbook, ASB, and WEB are invited to pop up a table in the Quad and share. We invite you to check them out!

*Back to School Night: Thursday, August 30, 2018*

Parents and students are invited to our annual Back to School Night. Meet administrators, faculty, staff, and learn about your student’s classes and routine. South Pasadena’s PTA, SPEF, Booster Club, and SPMS’ ASB will also be on hand to welcome you.

We look forward to seeing you there!
