Last year SMS won a $1,000 Technology Grant through MAPS Credit Union.  Thank you Mrs. Chandler for procuring the Grant last year. This year I submitted a video in hopes to claim a second victory for SMS and I need your help. Please share the link below and vote for “Guptill, Scott: Silverton Middle, Unlimited Imagination with Video Green Screen”. Our goal would be to receive at least 500 votes.  Please share this link on social media and get the word out.  There are a few other Silverton schools applying and it is one email per vote.  Voting is December 1st -15th.  There are 10 grants available and only 18 applicants. We Can Do This!    Here is the link:   Thank you!                      — Scott Guptill

 All 7th graders are required to have the 6th in the series of the TDAP booster.  Please have your child get their booster prior to January 15th, as we need time to process the documentation before Exclusion Day.  Contact your personal care provider to get information about your child’s immunization records.
