Book Pick up/Drop off:
1. If you still need to exchange books, please swing by school at some point this week. We are open from 8:00am-3:30pm. Please have your child’s name, ELA teacher and class period handy. In addition, don’t forget to bring ANY books to return. This includes last year and this year, plus media center books.
2. If you picked up a novel and still need to return one or two, please drop off during the above times.
Please let us know if you have questions or need to make additional arrangements to make sure students have their novels.
Study Skills and Digital Learning Tips: On Tuesday afternoon, students will receive an email from Mr. Kenna that includes the first episode of "Study Skills and Digital Learning Tips." This is a brief video (made by teachers) that will start modeling some basic tips and tricks for mastering online learning. This is episode #1. Additional videos will follow in the coming weeks. Students should take some time by Wednesday afternoon to view this 12 minute video. Parents may certainly view with their students!
Inclement Weather Days – We were a little caught off guard by the weather decisions over the last 24 hours too! The district is working on getting things clarified for these events. QACPS will update everyone on how this will work in the future. It has been discussed at Board Meetings, but finalized clarification is coming soon.
Hybrid Re-opening Planning Updates: Please stay tuned to STMS emails for updates.
A Message from the STMS Nurse: This is a friendly reminder that ALL seventh graders must have proof in their file of Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine before
Wireless Hotspots: As outlined in the QACPS Recovery and Reopening Plan, QACPS is minimizing the option for paper packets. With that being said, internet access is important. If you need to get a mobile “hotspot” because of unreliable internet access, please let us know! QACPS has purchased several hundred to support families. (And please don’t be embarrassed… quality internet access on the Eastern Shore is not a guarantee for everyone. The Kenna household doesn’t get fast internet either, so I understand!) To request a mobile hotspot: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us @ 410-643-3194. We will get you on the list with QACPS to get one!
There’s plenty we might want to forget about 2020, but there’s certainly a great deal worth remembering. The yearbook staff has been working hard to create a book that documents this historic year. This is one book you will want to have.
Sales are open now, and copies are limited. We don’t have the ability to order extras, so please CLICK HERE to guarantee your copy. (Did you know? Jostens allows you to pay for the book in 3-installments for no additional fee. How easy!)
Congratulations – We are pleased to report that Ms. Potter’s baby girl has arrived! Ms. Potter (our school counselor) will be out for a couple of months. STMS is lucky to have Ms. Connie Dean, an experienced counselor with QACPS, to fill in while Ms. Potter is out. Ms. Dean will start next week, and we will share her contact information with students and parents.
I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself to you. My name is Connie Dean and I will be filling in as the school counselor at Stevensville Middle School, while Ramona Potter is out for the next few months.
