Principal's Message

Dear Sultan Middle School Families:

March 15, 2023

Skyhawk family, it is good to see that spring is on its way. We are looking forward to seeing everyone here in the commons for Parent Teacher Conferences Wednesday and Thursday. This is a great opportunity to connect with your students' teachers, and get any questions asked. 

We have had an exciting few weeks here at Sultan Middle School. We had our Step-up Day and night where parents and students of incoming 6th graders received a preview of our school and what we have to offer. Mr. Richert put together a fantastic program for the incoming Skyhawks. We had student and staff speakers talk about many different programs we have available. We also had Ms. Suter with her choir and band perform which we all enjoyed hearing a little Star Wars music. At Step-up Night, we appreciated all those parents who came to find out information about SMS. Mr. Richert, Ms. Emmons, Mr. Broughton, Mrs. Sand, Ms. Suter, Ms. DuFloth, and myself talked about our school and answered questions pertaining to what it is like here at Sultan Middle School, services available, and what electives we currently offer. 

ASB was able to raise some funds to put towards student activities such as dances and other activities for students with the fundraising effort and we celebrated with a great color battle. Thank you ASB and Ms. Motta. Girls basketball had an exciting season with some electric games. Wrestling finishes off this month. 

Other information we would like to share is starting to be a high number of students bringing in toys from home. Please remember to talk with your students and encourage them to leave toys and personal items home. Cell phones are a concerning issue as well. The expectation in the student/parent handbook is phones can be used before/after school and during lunch with the rest of the day with the phone turned off and put away in the backpack. This also includes earbuds. Lastly, we also want to make sure as the temperatures increases, we need to be mindful of the school dress code. 

We have started a homework club that all students are welcome to. It is every Tuesday and Thursday that we have school until the end of May. We have teachers supervising the students to ensure work is getting completed and there to assist when a student needs support. The activities buses are also running to get those students home with the pickup time at school at 4:50 PM. 

We want to thank you for all you do for your students. We know at times it can be a challenge. When we work together, we can find solutions to anything. Our tardies have decreased dramatically from well over 1,000 the 1st quarter to just over 500. 

If you have any questions about your student's classes, please reach out to your child’s teacher. 

Brett Chapple, Principal
