Principal's Post

Dear Pirate Families

   Welcome back to another exciting school year! I am honored to serve as your instructional leader for the 2016-17 school year. We have a staff that is committed to excellence in serving your child(children) as they navigate through their middle school years. Throughout the year, teachers will be updating their web pages to include the common core standards they will be instructing as well as school wide assessments that we will be administering this year. Each student will have an intervention period that they will be able to utilize to seek assistance in the academic areas that they need support in. There will also be enrichment opportunities during this time, as well as during our elective classes.

   We look forward to working together to provide quality programs for our students. Please join our text alert program to receive reminders on your phone and use our webpage that is updated to reflect the latest information. If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns please feel free to contact me at 330-654-1950.

    State test scores have arrived.  I will be having an assembly with the students at the end of September to review their scores with them.  After the assembly, the students will receive their parent copies to bring home.  More information TBA. 

Sincerely,

Ms Hiser

Principal

Southeast Middle School

Southeast Academic Academy (Honors Program)
Members of the Southeast Middle School staff collaborated during the summer months to create a new honors organization for the student body for the 2016-17 school year, the Southeast Academic Academy.
 
Students will be able to apply for this honor society in the coming months. Below is the rubric that has been developed by the committee. Students must earn at least 16 points to be considered by the committee. The goal of the program is to encourage students to strive for excellence in their academics while being involved in their school and community.
 
All students were given a copy of the criteria and attended an assembly that explained the program. If you have any further questions please call the school at 330-654-1950.
 
Below is a copy of the rubric:
