• COLT CALLS 9/21/20

    Good Evening Parents, students and staff,

    This is Joycelyn Cassidy, principal of SWM with your Colt Call for the week of 9.21 to 9.25.

    Parents, Please remind your children that they should be logging in to their classes on their Remote Learning days. If they do not log in at all during the school day or complete their assignments, they will be marked absent. If they must log in at alternate times and as long as their assignment is complete, they will be marked present. Teachers will reach out to you to inform you of problems of inactivity.


    If you have not returned your IMPACT AID Card, please do so next week. The first homeroom from each grade level that has 100% return gets a reward from Ms. Cassidy.

    The SOS training for students is scheduled for the following dates: 6th grade 9/28 and 10/01; 7th grade 10/5 and 10/8 8th grade 10/12 and 10/15. As mentioned previously, this training is a very sensitive issue for families. Students received a parental permission form last week. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please return the completed form to your child’s school.


    7th grade parents please remember that the documentation and proof of your having received their T-Dap and Meningococcal immunization are due 10/30. In addition, if you are new to NC public schools, you must provide the NC Health Assessment on the NCHA form. This is also due by 10/30.


    And finally, parents, we are asking your support with reminding students during their remote learning days that their actions even from home should not be disruptive to the face-to-face settings for other teachers and students. All actions, chats and digital games such as kahoot and quizzlet are also recorded and visible. Disciplinary actions will be assigned to students that are knowingly disrupting others from learning.


    Mark Your Calendar:


    · The next set of progress reports for the first grading period is scheduled for 9/25. The last day of the grading period is 10/15

    · Yearbooks are still available for purchase. You can also pay for them online through school cash. The link is posted on our website.


    Please remember, all information in this message will also be available on the school website.


    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, goodbye!
