Grizzly Days - August 23 & 24, 1:00 to 5:00
Posted on 08/05/2022

Greetings Grizzlies and Families,

Summer has flown by and we are preparing for an outstanding year at Summit Trail Middle School! Our first day of school, Thursday, September 1st, is approaching and we have some important information and dates for our new and returning Grizzlies. In addition to this message, there will more news coming out via Skyward messenger emails. Please make sure that your Skyward information is correct and up to date.

The first weeks of school are dedicated to helping support and teach our students about how to be successful in middle school. Staff will be here at our “Grizzly Days” in August to help both students and parents take care of all the business to start school. Our WEB (Where Everyone Belongs) Team will be ready to help welcome our sixth graders through orientation before school. Classroom teachers will be using the first few days to review school norms, rules, and responsibilities while getting to know each other and make connections. The outcome will be students who are excited about learning and growing together over the course of the year in a variety of opportunities and activities.

We sincerely hope that all of our grown-ups at STMS will join our PTA in the fall.  They are such a valuable partner to our daily work throughout the year. The vast majority of our volunteer opportunities flow through the PTA and money that they raise allows us to bridge gaps in areas that our current funding cannot address.  When parents ask, “how can I help?”, joining and participating in the PTA is a fantastic opportunity!

Please join us for Grizzly Days on either August 23rd or August 24th 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  While we are encouraging 6th grade families to come on August 23rd and 7th and 8th grade students on August 24th, you are welcome to come either day.
