Starting Monday, October 16, 2017, we are adjusting our event attendance procedure to encourage greater student attendance at events and to enhance school spirit. This is a "trial run", so to speak. If it goes well, it will become our permanent procedure. For now this will be on a game-by-game basis. Students wishing to attend an after-school home athletic event (i.e. in the SLMS gymnasium or at Old Kempner Stadium), will:
New for 2017-18: FBISD is charging admission to middle school athletic events (volleyball, football, basketball, and soccer). Admission is $1 for students and $2 adults.
We have no higher obligation to our community than for providing a safe learning environment for our students. Please be mindful that we do not provide supervision of students before school until just before 8:00 and that the building opens to students at 8:20. Also, the Sugar Land Police Department has been issuing citations to drivers who violate the solid white line/dedicated right turn lane into the front circle drive, as well as to those who make a left-hand turn from the circle drive onto Seventh Street during posted hours. Please observe all traffic laws, and remain patient during our pick-up and drop-off processes. Last, students who need to cross Seventh Street may do so at our designated crosswalk that is manned by a crossing guard. It is at the east end of the property. Help us keep your children safe by observing these points.
Grade-level assemblies were held on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. A number of topics were discussed, including general expectations, how to be successful, dress code, academic honesty, and use of digital devices at school. This is the slide deck that was used for the talking points.
Please note that starting Wednesday, September 20th, being late to classes will result in tardies counting. We have given students enough time now to know their routines and learn routes to various classes and become accustomed to how much time they have between classes. Moving forward, tardies will count. For a given class, students will receive the following consequences for tardies. This menu starts over each nine weeks.
Parents—if you would like to place a restriction on your child’s cafeteria account so that they don’t overspend, please download the document and follow the instructions.
Steps for Setting a Restriction on a Meal Account
Here is the newly revised school supply list for SLMS. New for 2017-18 is a pilot program in 6th grade where will be using a single binder, called an AVID binder, for all classes. Essentially, this is a single 3-inch D-ring binder (any color). This is an effort to help students be better organized while also minimizing the amount of materials they carry from class to class, and minimize (or even eliminate) the need for a locker. Throughout the year, 6th grade students will have structured time to organize their assignments, along with mini-lessons on how to remain organized. Note: Please DO NOT bring all of these supplies on the first day of school. Your child will only need: a lunch or lunch money, pen/pencil/paper, small string bag (15"x15").
Please see the semester exam schedule for this school year. Please note that exams will not be administered early for any reason. Students who miss an exam in December must make it up in January, and students who miss an exam in May must make it up in June.
Students are also reminded to stay off of other FBISD property after we dismiss on early dismissal days. Elementary campuses will still be in session until their regular dismissal time.
