Cycle Day 3

SOMS Guidance Alert:  The SOMS Guidance Department will be running a Family Changes Group for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.  This group is open to any student who has experienced a family change (divorce, separation, remarriage), past or present.  If any student could benefit from the group, please contact Mrs. Maiorano or Mrs. Iannucci.  The group will run 6-8 weeks.

The Holidays are around the corner and photo memories make wonderful gifts for family and friends.  This year, SOMS PTA has partnered with Shutterfly and Tiny Prints.  By placing your order through the SOMS PTA storefront, 13% of your purchase will be donated to SOMS PTA.  All proceeds will support assemblies, activities and events for SOMS students.  More info here:
