Important Information

SMCPS will begin taking applications for the following Public School Academies on March 6th.  The deadline to have these applications submitted is April 19th.

I can’t believe the countdown is on. 8th grade has 28 more days left of school!!!! Their last day of school will be Thursday, May 30th.  Graduation will be on Monday, June 3rd.

If you would like to order an 8th grade class shirt, please follow the link that was posted on the facebook page and in the email I sent out . They are awesome and we will wear them on our class trip!


8th Grade Class trip is May 23rd. We will be going to Terrapin Adventures. The bus will leave at 8:00 from SJS and we will return ~6:00pm. Cost is $65 per participant.

I have created a Facebook group for our class.  It is a closed group where I will post pictures of the fun things we are doing at school.  If you would like to join the group, please look for Mrs. Engel’s 8th Grade.  This is just for parents/guardians.
