7th Grade

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Dear 7th Grade Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We hope that you had a great summer with your families and are ready for the new school year.  We are happy to serve as your SOMS HSA 7th Grade Coordination Team, and we are currently firming up plans for this year’s events (including a movie night and end-of-year pool party). Stay tuned for more updates!

The HSA Board also has numerous school-wide fundraising activities in the works with plenty of opportunities to get involved. As always, we would love your support, as your involvement is what helps make SOMS great.

We hope that you are as excited as we are about the upcoming school year, and we look forward to collaborating with all of you on creating memorable and enriching activities at SOMS for our 7th grade students.


Your 7th Grade Coordinators
