December Newsletter 2018
Dear Parents/Guardians of Sedway Middle School:
Happy Holidays! What a wonderful first semester we experienced. Your students are doing a great job at Sedway Middle School. They have displayed good behavior and have shown what is means to be a true RAVEN. Our school-wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program continues to help establish a positive school environment and culture. Students are able to earn “Ravens Rewards” for exhibiting good behavior.
I am proud to announce that Sedway was awarded the state’s highest recognition (silver status) towards fidelity of implementation during the 2nd Annual Association of Positive Behavior Supports Conference at the University of Reno on December 1, 2018. Several Clark County School District (CCSD) schools were recognized. Congratulations to Ms. Puza, Dean of Students, as she was recently promoted to Assistant Principal of Findlay Middle School. We appreciate Ms. Puza’s dedication to Sedway and wish her the very best at her new school. I am also happy to inform you that Sedway will be receiving front gates, which will be located at the main entrance of the school. All parents and visitors will have to enter through the gates when visiting and report to the main office. This will enhance the overall building security to ensure the continued safety of all students and staff members. In addition, a reminder that the district has began the process of conducting random school searches. Should Sedway be selected for the
random search you will be notified.
Students recently completed their 2nd round of SRI and SMI testing. Please review your student’s SRI/SMI goals and discuss their progress. The 3rd administration of SRI/SMI testing will occur in January. Students will be partaking in numerous academic incentives programs to celebrate their academic achievement such as the Academic Palooza, the SRI Most Improved and On The Move Student Luncheon and the Bowling Trip.
Please remember to mark your calendars for our monthly PAC meetings, which occur on the third Tuesday of each month at 9:00 am in the theatre. I also invite you to attend our Family Nights, as this is an opportunity for you to learn about the programs and curriculum to better support your child during the academic school year. If you have any questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
