Principal's Message

November 9, 2022

It has been an active first quarter.  As we start second quarter, we look back.  The start of the year was full of new beginnings.  A number of new staff were added to our family at Sultan Middle:  Mr. Coles, Ms. Miller, Mrs. Pellham, Ms. DuFloth, and Mr. Chapple are all very excited to be here and to be a part of our Skyhawk family.  Our extra-curricular activities of Cross-Country, Volleyball, and Football had great seasons with many participants.  They were able to persevere despite the challenges of the Bolt Creek Fire.  With that, we are grateful for all our first responders and fire personnel who worked hard each day for our communities.  We also had a spooktacular Fall concert.  Many thanks to Ms. Suter and her students for putting on a wonderful show.  We were awestruck with how well it was attended by friends, family, and students who came to support.  ASB sponsored our first Spirit Week.  I enjoyed seeing so many that dressed the part for each day: from our class colors, formal dress day, PJ day, Halloween, Decade day, and it culminated with what they felt they will look like 70 years in the future. 
As we move into our next quarter, I want to thank you all for your continued support of your students.  I want to bring to your attention a concern we have at Sultan Middle School.  In quarter one, there were 1,013 incidents recorded of students being tardy to class.  This quarter we are focusing on lowering that number by at least half.  Moving forward we are implementing the following policy for second quarter: 

If a student is tardy, they must report to the office to get a late pass from the tardy kiosk, then take this to their teacher to be admitted into class.

Unexcused tardies will result in the following consequences:
At 5th  tardy – Lunch held in the Student Success Center to review expectations. 
At 8th tardy –Two lunches held in the Student Success Center to review expectations.
At 11th tardy – Four lunches held in the Student Success Center to review expectations and a parent meeting scheduled.
At 14th tardy --Alternative passing schedule put in place to help facilitate arriving to class on time. This will be in place for the remainder of the quarter.

Looking forward, Boys Basketball and Girls Soccer has begun with huge turn outs for both.  We are excited to see what our Skyhawks can do on the field, court, and classroom.   We will have a Winter Concert “Soup and Supper” to be held at the high school on December 14th at 5:00 P.M. We can’t wait to hear the sounds of the season that night.  I enjoyed seeing many of you at our conferences.  If you have any questions about your student’s classes, please reach out to your child’s teacher. 

With regards, 
Brett Chapple, Principal
