Our first Prospective Family Open House is being held this Thursday, November 7. Know a prospective family interested in attending Sedgefield Middle? Encourage them to join us for an informative session with Sedgefield administration, teachers, parents and students. CMS Superintendent Earnest Winston, Central Learning Community Superintendent Tara Sullivan, and School Board member Margaret Marshall will also be at this event.

We would love to have current parents assist with answering prospective family questions while on these tours. Please arrive at (or before) 8:30 a.m. Thank you for signing up for a slot by clicking here. Your help and support is greatly appreciated!

Also, if you know someone considering attending Sedgefield Middle, please share this flyer with them about upcoming prospective family events. Questions? E-mail Lindsay Jones.

Spartan Spirit at Homecoming!
A little rain can't keep a good Spartan down! Sedgefield school spirit was out in full force at our homecoming tailgate event last week. Despite the rain and game cancellation, 100+ scholars and their families enjoyed an inflatable obstacle course race, face painting, great music, Kona Ice, Hungry Howie's pizza and so much more!

Thank you to all of the Sedgefield staff, faculty, administration and volunteers for making this a fantastic event.
Let's Take a Field Trip!
In November and December, Sedgefield Middle students are taking some amazing field trips. The best part? If you volunteer to chaperone, you get to experience them, too!

Trips include everything from taking our dance students to live performances to visiting the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Don't miss out on this great opportunity to give back to Sedgefield Middle. Click here to sign up to chaperone!
Tell a Friend - Prospective Family Tours at SMS
Know a family interested in attending Sedgefield Middle School next year? Share with them this sign up to schedule a tour of Sedgefield Middle School. Tours are offered twice per month . Families are welcome to bring their student with them on the tour and we welcome the opportunity to meet their child. Families should indicate who will be attending when they complete the sign up.
Club Volunteers Needed - Sign Up Today!
Clubs are a great way for scholars to work with different peers and learn new skills...and a phenomenal way for staff members to build relationships with scholars. SMS is excited to offer over 20 clubs to our scholars! The clubs range from academically-based clubs to sports-related. Scholars will be in the same club for one semester and may choose a new club in January.

We welcome any support from our parents and community members to assist with the clubs. If you are interested, please sign up here . Be sure to include your e-mail and phone number to receive updates. Please note: all volunteers must be cleared CMS volunteers; this must be done on a yearly basis.

It's Okay to Judge (the Science Fair!)
From December 3-6, Sedgefield Middle scholars will flaunt their science know-how at our school science fair. To make this event a sure-fire success, volunteers are needed to help judge project oral presentations.

No science qualifications are needed (you'll be trained prior to judging) and all judges will receive a snack (Pavlovian conditioning, perhaps?) A variety of time slots are available to volunteer, so click here to sign up today. Science fair winners will be announced on December 12 at the Holiday Arts night.
