Parent Representative Needed!
The administration of Southern Middle School is looking for a parent representative to participate in the Parent Advisory Committee to the Superintendent (PACS) which will be comprised of a parent representative from each school. Regional meetings with the Superintendent and other available administrative staff will occur biannually (fall/spring) during this school year. Members will work together to:
- share feedback and insight from the parent's perspective on school process, policies, and initiatives to ensure that the needs of students' and their families are identified for consideration.
- provide parents with information regarding existing and emerging trends in education and provide an opportunity to present feedback.
- serve as a advisory, not a decision-making body, that makes recommendations, encourages brainstorming and provides opportunities for parent involvement on committees and task forces.
5K Bark in the Park 2015
In January of 2014, the Gifted & Talented students at Southern Middle School started working on getting a dog park built with cooperation with the Deep Creek Lions Club. It has been a fun project that we have enjoyed greatly! The dog park fence has been installed and is ready to use. However, we now need to raise money to get the dog waste disposal bags and agility equipment for inside the dog park. Therefore, we will be having another 5K Bark in the Park to help raise funds.
The 2nd Annual 5K Bark in the Park is scheduled for September 26th at 8:45AM at the Garrett County Dog Park on Bumble Bee Road. Anyone who preregisters before September 12th will receive a free t-shirt. Cost is $30. Registration forms can be found on Deep Creek Lions Club website at www.deepcreeklions.org. All proceeds will go to getting the dog waste disposal sites and equipment for inside the dog park.
Any questions, please contact Miranda Gallagher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please help spread the word!
