Dear Seckman Middle School Parents and Students:
The entire staff at Seckman Middle School would like to thank everyone for a great 2013-2014 school year as we work this summer to welcome back our 8th grade students extend a warm welcome to our new 7th grade students.
The transition from elementary to middle school can be very stressful. As our final step in our yearlong transition program, we are offering 7th (and 8th) grade students the chance to pick-up their schedule and get acquainted with the building.
We encourage everyone to pick-up their schedule before the first day of school to ensure that there are no scheduling problems. By catching this ahead of time, we are able to have a schedule for your child before the first bell rings on the first day of school.
REGISTRATION is only for new students to the district. Any student who did not attend a Fox C-6 school last year must attend registration. New families to the school district need to bring proof of residency and immunization records to registration.(See required immunizations on the back)
ORIENTATION is provided to students who are returning to Seckman Middle School as 8th grade students, or new 7th grade students who attended a Fox C-6 elementary school last year. Students attending orientation will be allowed to pick-up their class schedule, student agenda, and locker assignment and combination. You will be able to tour the building and help your child locate his/her classes at this time. There is a fee of $8.00 in order to receive a locker assignment and student planner. Come any time during the times listed. Give yourself and your child at least an hour to get the items listed above and to familiarize yourselves with the building. Also, all forms needed for the 2014-2015 school year included with this letter will be mailed to all SMS families this summer. These forms must be filled out and brought with you to orientation in order to receive your schedule, locker, and planner.
Parents are encouraged to attend with their child so that the necessary emergency and medical information can be obtained at that time, and so that we may answer any questions you have for us. Please feel free to pick up your schedule any day after August 6th between the hours of 8:00a.m.-11:00a.m. and 1:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. if you are unable to attend during the times listed below.

Open Registration/Orientation (7th and 8th Grade)

All 7th and 8th grade students are required to have completed or be current AND up to date with their immunizations. Your child must be up to date or they will not be allowed to start school. Please send or bring a copy of any recent shots received.
8th graders must show proof of receiving the T-daP shot
required to start school on August 14th, 2014.
We look forward to seeing you on August 6th at one of the above times. Please remember to bring $8.00 and all forms, filled out, to orientation.
