Good morning Stanwood Middle School.  Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.  I pledge allegiance to the flag ….


Lunch: Chicken Parmesan


Happy Birthday: Ava B., Grace L., Emily S. today.  Katherine J. and Mr. Voehl’s tomorrow and Kelsey A. on Sunday! 



The boys Junior Varsity Basketball team played like a well-oiled machine last night and conquered the Port Susan Knights 34 – 24.  The Spartans took a 2-point lead into the half and never looked back. Max M. led the charge with 12 points and 6 assists. Landon D. got the Spartans first double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds proving to be unstoppable. Nate A., Calvin B., Gavin C., Topher H., and Oliver E. all scored a bucket a piece and Alec O. nailed his free throws to edge the Knights.  Excellent rebounding and leadership by Mathew M. showed why this team is undefeated. Ayden M. and Maddox D. each had 3 steals and Kelan K. also helped lead the Spartans to an epic in home town domination. Come out to watch these boys ball out against Haller next Tuesday at Stanwood.  


The black JV volleyball team check on Port Susan night last night  and beat them in the first two sets. The team was led by powerful serving from Kylie H., Megan G., Aiyanna H. and Lauren B. Kylie H. had great attacks at the net. Fabulous job ladies - keep up the good work. 


The JV Volleyball White Team won an exciting game last night against our rivals, the Port Susan Knights. Leading servers were Faith A. and Gracie S. While Evelyn G. showed great hustle. Good job girls.

Student Learning Plans for eighth grade students will be sent home soon. SLPs are for students that did not meet proficiency in either the ELA or math portions of SBA testing last spring. As part of this state requirement, students who have a SLP will have a short academic conference with the principal or assistant principal as well.

Also, the Stanwood Middle School Giving Tree is located in our lobby.  People can get a tag off the tree, buy a gift that is listed on the tag, and return it wrapped by December 13th for delivery.

If you need to excuse an absence you can call our attendance line at 360.629.1352.

We also wanted to remind everyone that the YMCA is making changes to their drop in program after school. The YMCA notified the district that beginning September 30th, only students who are members of the YMCA will be able to participate in this program. If you would like to continue having your student participate in the after school program or have any other questions, please contact Billy Derma, the Teen and Camp Programs Coordinator at 360-572-3400.

Another important note is to please check your bus route to make sure you know the route number and pick up/drop off times. Please call the school at 360.629.1350 if you have questions.
