South Hills Middle School


Today in Ms Kennedy's math class, some very talented 8th graders taught the lesson and helped the 6th graders with their practice work.
We had a great time with our families at the annual EL/Migrant night! Thank you so much to Ms. Buschhorn, Ms. Clapier and Ms. Munoz for putting everything together. Also, for inviting high school students to come talk and prepare our students for their upcoming 9th grade year!
Our South Hills Middle School Dare to Dream 3.0 Interactive Career Night is happening in-person this year! We are so excited to see our past vendors and add new vendors to our list of showcased careers! This entire night is FREE for vendors and our SHMS families! If you know of anyone who would like to showcase their career/business or donate an item to raffle off, let me know!
NOTICE: Today's track meet has been canceled due to the potential for inclement weather.
Mr. Doyle wanted to give a shout out to his students and SHMS family:

"Words can’t express how thankful we are for your generous fund raising effort to support my family. We are incredibly grateful to the South Hills students, staff, and parents.

Thank you

Mr. Doyle and family"

We love you, Mr. Doyle!
Today, our 7th graders went to the Herrett Center where they learned about reptiles and watched a movie in the planetarium about the coral reef. They finished off the day with some roller skating. Even Mr. Stewart got in on the fun!
If you have a minute today or tomorrow, please come by our front office and wish Mr. Kiester a happy Assistant Principal's week! He is AMAZING at what he does and we all love having him around!! Definitely someone we can always look up to...pun intended. :)
This year we have introduced a schoolwide reading time during the first 15 minutes of our school day. Teachers have created some of their own strategies to increase the love of reading during this time, especially Ms. Oneida. Today, she chose to read to her students during the 15 minutes and had all of her students' attention. We love you, Ms. Oneida!
SHMS families-we start ISAT testing tomorrow and will continue every WEDNESDAY in April. Please make sure students bring their Chromebooks and headphones if they have some. And, most importantly, get a good night's rest. We are excited to see what our students can do! Thank you!!!
Ms. Moses and Ms. Carrieri both worked hard to apply for a CapEd grant to help purchase a Book vending machinenand they BOTH received it!! We are so proud of them!
Our penny wars competition was a huge success. SHMS students, staff, and families raised right around $3,000 for our very own Brett Doyle and his family to help during his treatment and recovery.
Today our SHMS basketball teams took on the staff in a somewhat friendly game.

Trigger Warning: Animal blood/gore

For Valentine's Day, the 7th graders in Ms. Chaffin and Ms. Densley's science classes celebrated by dissecting pig hearts. They are ending their Unit about different organ systems and this was a great hands-on lab to show how a heart functions.
