General Meeting and Santa Rosa Middle School Presentation

Santa Rosa Middle School presentation at PTA Meeting * November 12th at 6:00pm

Kathy Coker, Principal of Santa Rosa Middle School, will be visiting Proctor Terrace to meet with parents at the PTA meeting on the evening of November 12 at 6:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. She will be bringing a team of teachers, parents, and students to present information about the outstanding programs at Santa Rosa Middle School. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to talk with Ms. Coker and the Middle School team in a small, intimate setting to find out all about the great programs and student opportunities at Santa Rosa Middle School. Please come and take advantage of this excellent opportunity. Parents of sixth grade students will find this presentation especially interesting since their children will be entering middle school next year. Sixth grade students are welcome and encouraged to attend this presentation with their parents.

This is our biggest meeting of the year. We used to hold it in the Library but we quickly outgrew it. It’s not just 6th Graders and their parents. Everyone ends up coming… K-6th! 6th Graders (and all the kids) sit in front so they can ask all their questions. And, their questions are always GREAT! You’ll meet your Counselor’s per your last name and a lot of great teachers and administrators. And, PT Alumni to boot always sit on the stage and answer questions as well.

SRMS will come back in February during school for the 6th graders to get their paperwork to bring home. They’ll be able to choose their electives, as well.

This is a great time to ask about school hours, school sports teams, clubs, zero period, regular and p.e. lockers, spirit days, electives, p.e. clothes, 7th and 8th grade field trips, dress code, and beyond.

You can leave after the presentation. You’re not required to stay for the entire meeting. Otherwise the General meeting will start at 6:30.  Lots of important topics will be discussed.
