NEW MISSION: Sarasota Middle School students will become critical thinkers who are responsible, productive, and resilient.
NEW VISION: The Sarasota Middle School community collaborates to inspire and empower students by establishing high expectations for all.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. This week we held our Perfect Score Celebration
to honor 61 students and classmates who received a perfect score on a state assessment last
year. Six of those students earned a perfect score on more than one! These assessments include
the End of Year FAST for Reading and Math, the comprehensive Science assessment, and the
Algebra 1 End of Course exam. Congratulations to all the students honored this week!
We also want to give a shout out to both our Boys and Girls Basketball teams and their coaches.
Both teams won in their matches against McIntosh Middle School! Well done!!
We will be begin FAST Progress Monitoring 2 next week. On Monday our 6th graders will be on a
modified schedule. As such, they will be eating lunch 25 minutes earlier than usual. Please pack an
extra snack for your child for later in the day.
The rest of the schedule will be as follows:
7th grade ELA - Tuesday
8th grade ELA - Wednesday
6th grade Math - Thursday
7th grade Math - Friday
8th grade Math - Monday, Dec. 11
Students in Algebra 1 honors or Geometry honors will not be taking grade level math tests but will
be taking the midterms on December 14 and 15.
Please help us set students up for success by ensuring your childre are prepared to do their best
on these assessments by getting a good nights sleep, eating a healthy breakfast and arriving to
school on time.
