A Message from Principal McHale

Eagle Families,

We have made it to the end of the school year!  It has been a year like none other and I thank you for entrusting your child(ren) to OCPS and SunRidge Middle School. 

At this time final report cards will be available in Skyward on July 13th.  Please be sure to have paid any fines and returned any books as soon as possible.  I will send another call out this summer when we have information on state test scores and reports.

Students in 6th-8th grade will be keeping their current device.  Students moving to other OCPS schools do not need to do anything.  Their device will transfer with them.  Students leaving OCPS for any reason will need to turn their device in with their withdrawal.  If your student’s laptop needs repair please fill out the student tech request as soon as possible to ensure the repair occurs before next school year.   Be sure to charge your laptop every so often this summer so that the battery remains functional.

Returning 6th and 7th graders (next years 7th & 8th graders) can tentatively plan for schedule pick-up and walking classes on Thursday, August 5th.  More information to come later in the summer. 

    

What time is it? Summer Reading time!! Orange County Public Schools is launching their Summer Reading challenge with Beanstack and Orange County Library Systems. This year, our theme is Tails and Tales. Students have the opportunity to read and log their minutes in Beanstack for a chance to win prizes! To find more information on this challenge, visit SummerReading.ocps.net. #OCPSreads


To the families of our eighth graders, I wish you and your child (ren) the very best in the future.  We have truly persevered through a tough year to finish out their middle school experience!  I look forward to seeing all of our Eagles walk across the stage at graduation in a few short years! 

Follow SRMS on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for summer updates. Have a safe and happy summer!  Don’t forgot to relax, read and rest! See you in August.

Sincerely,

Mrs McHale, SRMS Principal

TECHNOLOGY ISSUES?

There are several places to find the Student Troubleshooting Technology Guide.  It can be found on the SunRidge Middle School Home page sunridgems.ocps.net and on the Parent tab under Digital Technology.  


Parents, please be sure your child's face mask fits properly and is worn correctly. The mask should cover both the nose and mouth at all times. If the mask is too big and tends to slide down, try twisting the ear loops to make it tighter across the face or tie a knot to shorten the loops.  

Masks that are worn without covering the nose and mouth are not effective and put all at risk!





There are many volunteer opportunities here at SRMS! If you are looking to get involved please email  volunteers@srmsptso.org to hear about the many different teacher, school and PTSO activities available. We appreciate all of our volunteers as they help to make our school a success!

Stay tuned to learn when the first SAC (School Advisory Council) meeting of the year will be held.  Usually our meetings are held in the SRMS Media Center.  New members are invited to join the SAC...teachers, staff, parents, and community members. All parents are always welcome to SAC Meetings, but will need to be voted on to be a voting member of the School Advisory Council.  This is a fabulous way to stay abreast of what is going on at SunRidge Middle School and to have a voice in continuing the success.  
SAC meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month.
