8th Grade Celebration


At the end of every 8th grade year, the teachers hold a celebrations for them. They think that after three years of middle school, they deserve a day to celebrate their accomplishments. They also want to wish us a good time and good luck in high school. They grill hot dogs and hamburgers for us and have activities for us to play. The 8th grade Student Council members help set it up and organize it. They call and figure out what food and what activities to do.

This year they picked a fun field day. When the bell rings in the morning, the eighth graders will stay in the gym and then they will go down to the field. They will have competitions to play and a schedule worked out. We do not know when it will end, but most likely 3.  This will take place on May 5th and we will be down on the football field. The shirts are being made as of right now, but when they are finished 8th graders will be given this t-shirt.. All the 8th graders will be put into teams and each team will have a team colored bandana. Some of the games will be flag football, kickball, and water games. They will need to bring extra money if they would like Kona Ice or drinks. There will also be a video shown at the end of the day. It will be all the memories of the 8th graders, made by the Publications class. We can not wait and we know the 8th graders can’t either!

5th Grade Orientation

On March 9th, 2017 the upcoming 6th graders were presented an assembly explaining all of the fun things about middle school for next year. Choir and band performed in the Performing Arts Center to give the 5th graders an idea what the program is about. Some middle school buddies gave 5th graders tours around the school and some of the students explained either sports or clubs. Some of the club and sports explained were Volleyball, Basketball, Science Club, and Time Travelers.

Thank you to all middle school students that presented different clubs and classes for the upcoming sixth graders and a very big congratulations to the choir and band students for their outstanding performance to show the fifth graders what SGMS is all about! The upcoming sixth graders seemed very enthusiastic about their journey through middle school.
