Greetings Soaring Heights Families;

It's been an exciting week of celebrations, activities, and events at Soaring Heights this week! 

Our wonderful PTO transformed our campus into a carnival and we have all appreciated the amazing support we have received from our PTO, families and community to celebrate our teachers and staff this week. 

Our 5th graders enjoyed Field Day at Frederick High School on Friday, May 6. Middle school had fun at their field day as well. 

The Soaring Heights Carnival will be tonight (Friday, May 6) from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. This will be a great family event and we encourage everyone to come out and have fun!

We have teams competing at World Robotics in Dallas, Texas this week and next week. We are so proud of their hard work and accomplishments. 

We will celebrate our 3rd Quarter Middle School Honor Roll Honorees on Wednesday, May 11.  Please see the schedule below.

As we begin to prepare for next year and make class lists (in elementary school only), please take a moment to complete the Placement Survey below.  While we don't take specific teacher requests, your feedback will help us choose the best learning environment for your child.

Our incoming 6th grade students will have the opportunity to participate in our Step Up program on August 8.  Please see below for links and registration information.  Registration is due May 27.
 
We look forward to celebrating our students and their accomplishments as we complete the last few weeks of school. Please look for reminders and communication on the details for all these various events. This has been a prosperous year and we thank you for your teamwork and communication. 

Best Wishes,

Cyrus Weinberger, Principal
Meghan Quirk, Assistant Principal

Middle School Honor Roll Wednesday May 11
 
We are excited to celebrate our 3rd Quarter Honor Roll Honorees on Wednesday, May 11.  The ceremony will be held in the middle school gym and parents and/or family members may come for each grade level ceremony.  Due to capacity limits, only three guests maximum per honoree will be allowed in the gym.  Parents will receive a notification if your student has qualified for honor roll.  We will not have a live stream of this honor roll event.

We will honor each grade level individually:

6th Grade Ceremony 8:45 - 9:15
7th Grade Ceremony 9:30 - 10:00
8th Grade Ceremony 10:15 - 10:45


Parents and/or family members attending will enter through the main entrance and exit directly from the gym.
Student Placement Survey
 

We do not take requests for specific teachers; however, your input does carry significant weight and will help to ensure we find a good match for your child. Placements are based on a variety of factors including: student need, balanced classes, and input from parents and teachers.

As we begin to place students in classes for next year, it would be helpful for you to describe the learning needs of your child. Is there anything you would like the school to know about how your child learns or any special circumstance we should be aware of? Please complete this Student Placement Survey.

Please submit your form no later than, Monday, May 9th.

5th to 6th Grade Step-Up


Students will have the opportunity to advance and celebrate the transition to middle school through building relationships and community, creating comforts and connections, and developing familiarity with the school and environment while providing exposure to academic routines in our 5th to 6th Grade Step-Up program.
