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:
Parent Access Letters / Gradebook
Parent Access letters are sent home with your child each year in late September. Each child receives two copies: 1 - student copy (white copy) to login and be able to check their own grades and 2 - parent copy (yellow copy).
 
If you would like an additional copy for a second household, please feel free to call (330-654-1950) or e-mail a request to our secretary, Mrs. Witkosky (mwitkosky@sepirates.org). Please include the name and address where you would like the letter sent. This request will take 7-10 days to process.
