We are taking nominations for the 2014-2015 PTSA Board. The list of board postions can be found on the PTSA website in the bylaws and the standing rules. Being part of the SEM board is fun and interesting, and is also a way to give back to your child's school. If you are interested in volunteering for the board or want more information, please contact the nominating committee represenative, Cathy Lux at Cathy@compuguru.com.
Five to six Junior Class parents are needed to help with Junior Class Booster Club. Contact Nora Mercado at firstname.lastname@example.org meeting dates. The Junior Class is excited to have you join!
SAT Test Update
The SAT exam for SEM is February 26, 2014. SAT for ALL Juniors has been paid with a district grant. We are working on when students will report to school. The district is working on a waiver to make the start time 9:30 otherwise the start time will be 8:30. If the start time is 9:30 students will work until 1:45 with two breaks. Students will eat lunch at 1:45. Schools must provide snacks for students during the two breaks. We have about 82 juniors.
