• COLT CALL 02/22/21

    Good Evening Parents, students, and staff,

    This is Joycelyn Cassidy, with your Colt Call for the week of 3.01 to 3.05.   

    7th and 8th Grade parents, athletics has returned for middle school.  Beginning 3/15 eligible students can tryout for baseball and volleyball.  Girls and Boys track will begin 4/19.  Another phone call will be sent out later this evening with more detailed information on eligibility.  Letters will also be sent home with students.  Parents you can also check the website for more information and forms. 

    Parents there will be limited supply of yearbooks ordered this year.  The cost of the yearbook is $25.00 and is available for pre-orders online at Balfour.com.  We are sending order forms home with students this week.  If you would like to order a yearbook, you can send in a check or money order by your student.  This year, students can help build the yearbook with their own pictures.  Through the ImageShare App, students can submit their own pictures.  The deadline to submit pictures is Monday 3/22.  Our yearbook staff is hosting a spirit week to assist with this opportunity.  We are calling it our Paparazzi Week! Students can share a part of SWM student life.  Beginning 3/15 to 3/19, students can participate with the theme of the day. 3/15 is Career/Military day.  Students can dress and represent either their desired career or support for our military.  3/16 is Superhero day.  3/17 is St. Patrick’s Day.  Even from home share your St. Patrick’s Day spirit. 3/18 is March Madness.  Students can wear their favorite sport’s team gear and 3/19 is Colt day.  Students can show their colt spirit by wearing school colors.  Selfie stations will be set up around the school for the opportunity to represent and help build our yearbook.  Whether students are at home, participating virtually or physically at school, they have received the information on how they can build their own yearbook through the Imageshare App.   

    The yearbook is planning to dedicate a section for our military families.  We would like to honor them for their service and show our appreciation.  Please send in pictures of family members that are in the military or directly upload them into the ImageShare app.  Please include the name of the family member and the branch of service.  Information about ImageShare has been sent home and shared with students.  If you have questions, please about ordering a yearbook, ImageShare or any other information or questions about the yearbook, please reach out to Ms. Hewitt or Ms. K. Mitchell.

    Students can purchase a shoutout that will be included in the yearbook for $1.00, subject to approval.  The deadline for the shoutouts is also 3/22.
