SMS Newsletter

PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Communication between the school and home is important to help each child succeed.  SMS uses Facebook, Google Classroom, and district website.  We continually work towards driving communication to only a select few platforms for easier access.   

In addition to that, we now have a Struthers City School District App found on the App store.  The New App is an excellent way to stay current on events and happenings at Struthers Middle School. 

Professionally,
Mr. Vecchione, Principal
Mr. Gelonese, Assistant Principal

FALL SPORTS RECOGNITION

A fall sports recognition assembly for all fall middle school athletes will be Friday, November 5, at 2:00 PM in the middle school cafe. The recognition is for students only. 

“FALL BEHIND”

Just a reminder that on Sunday, November 7, daylight savings time ends so we need to move our clocks back one hour.

CAREER DAY – YES

Career day will be held for seventh- and eighth-grade students on Tuesday, November 23. We have partnered with Junior Achievement for a program titled Your Economic Success – YES. The YES program provides an opportunity for students to begin discovering the choices that lie ahead. By combining career exploration and financial responsibility, Junior Achievement connects the importance of education to students’ future economic success.  

The 7th & 8th grade programs provide practical information about preparing for the working world while still in middle school. Some of the topics that will be discussed include; developing a personal brand, career mapping, job-hunting tools, work ethics and professionalism.
