SFPS has partnered with BrightBytes to learn more about how our students are responding to learning remotely. This survey was shared with our students.  Now we want to hear your opinion about this past year and learning remotely. We want to know how the district can better support our students.   The school district is holding a contest for participation. The winning schools get $$$! We want it. Help us out!!

We will be collecting survey responses from now until May 7, at 5 PM. The URL to access our district survey landing page is included in the accompanying email.

Congratulations to Ashlynn Herrera! MMS entered the BioSTEAM Design Challenge. The BioSTEAM Design Challenge is a BioSTEAM project which explores a unique theme built around the work of a featured artist. The BioSTEAM vision is to inspire youth to imagine and design their future, now. All projects explore how we can connect to and design with nature to imagine a better world. Students create drawings/designs that are shared through school/community events and can also be submitted to the BioSTEAM Design Challenge.

Great job, Ashlynn!!

Athletics: If you are interested in performing athletics at MMS, ensure that you have a physical completed. If you played for us last season, and did not get concussed, we will have that physical on file, and thus you will not need a new one. 7th graders will, as well as, any 8th graders that participated in MMS/SFPS athletics who received a concussion during play.

Basketball Update 4/21Boy's Basketball:  No more home games. Here is the link to Friday's game against Gonzales.

Track Update 4/12: Middle school track will be cancelled as a result of not having enough school year left to get a track season going. Despite things coming back to some semblance of normal, we do still have some ramifications of this COVID pandemic.

Important friendly reminders
Use of cameras
Whether in hybrid or remote, cameras must be on!
We want to partner with parents to help keep your student engaged and improve student performance as we teach in an online environment. Because we now have the tools for students to create a virtual background when online, we ask students to keep their cameras on during class time. This will allow them to receive instruction, participate in discussion, ask questions and receive general guidance from teachers and staff with the teacher being able to monitor the student’s engagement and needs.
In order to ensure that the instructional environment is conducive to learning, SFPS has the following expectations: 
  • Students will log in with first and last name 
  • Students will have their camera on  
  • School-appropriate attire is required 
  • School-appropriate behavior is required
  • Special circumstances should be discussed with the teacher and/or principals
Wearing face masks is an SFPS requirement when at school campuses, at school-sponsored events and on school transportation or with limited exceptions for students who have a physician’s order stating that they cannot wear a face mask. Masks must cover the mouth and nose and fit snugly against the sides of the face in order to contain respiratory droplets. The only time face masks may be off is while eating and drinking during allowed times.
The following masks are NOT allowed:
  • Masks that have exhalation valves or vents
  • Bandanas
  • Scarves
  • Neck gaiters (also known as a neck fleece)
  • Face shields 
Recordatorios amistosos importantes
Uso de cámaras
Ya sea en modo híbrido o remoto, ¡las cámaras deben estar encendidas!
Queremos asociarnos con los padres para ayudar a mantener a su estudiante comprometido y mejorar el rendimiento de los estudiantes mientras enseñamos en un entorno en línea. Debido a que ahora tenemos las herramientas para que los estudiantes creen un fondo virtual cuando están en línea, les pedimos a los estudiantes que mantengan sus cámaras encendidas durante el tiempo de clase. Esto les permitirá recibir instrucción, participar en discusiones, hacer preguntas y recibir orientación general de los maestros y el personal, y el maestro podrá monitorear el compromiso y las necesidades del estudiante.
A fin de garantizar que el entorno de instrucción sea propicio para el aprendizaje, SFPS tiene las siguientes expectativas: 
  • Los estudiantes iniciarán sesión con su nombre y apellido 
  • Los estudiantes tendrán su cámara puesta
  • Se requiere vestimenta apropiada para lapara la escuela
  • Se requiere comportamiento apropiadoescuela
  • Las circunstancias especiales deben discutirse con el maestro y / o los directores
Usar mascarillas es un requisito de SFPS en losescolares campus, en eventos patrocinados por la escuela y en el transporte escolar o con excepciones limitadas para estudiantes que tienen una orden del médico que indica que no pueden usar una mascarilla. Las máscaras deben cubrir la boca y la nariz y ajustarse cómodamente a los lados de la cara para contener las gotas respiratorias. El único momento en que se pueden quitar las mascarillas es mientras se come y se bebe durante los horarios permitidos.
Las siguientes máscarasestán NO permitidas:
  • Máscaras que tienen válvulas de exhalación o rejillas de ventilación
  • Bandanas
  • Bufandas
  • Polainas para el cuello (también conocidas como vellón para el cuello)
  • Protectores faciales

Capital High School has successful accreditation visit and review
Capital High School (CHS) had a successful accreditation visit and review during January. The accreditation process examines the whole institution–policies, programs, practices, learning conditions and cultural context–to determine how well the parts work together to carry out the school’s vision and meet the needs of every learner.
Accreditation isn’t about passing a one-time inspection. Rather, accreditation recognizes education providers that demonstrate and sustain their commitments to continuous improvement and better learner outcomes.
We would like to thank the CHS team for having a great visit and review!
´╗┐Santa Fe High School will be going through its accreditation at the end of the month.
Capital High School tiene una exitosa visita de acreditación y revisión
Capital High School (CHS) tuvo una exitosa visita de acreditación y revisión durante enero. El proceso de acreditación examina toda la institución (políticas, programas, prácticas, condiciones de aprendizaje y contexto cultural) para determinar qué tan bien las partes trabajan juntas para llevar a cabo la visión de la escuela y satisfacer las necesidades de cada alumno.
La acreditación no se trata de pasar una inspección única. Más bien, la acreditación reconoce a los proveedores de educación que demuestran y mantienen sus compromisos con la mejora continua y mejores resultados para los estudiantes.
¡Nos gustaría agradecer al equipo de CHS por tener una excelente visita y revisión!
Santa Fe High School pasará por su acreditación a fin de mes.
