Middle School News


MS Graduation is coming up! Date: 6/10/16, 630-930 PM.
 The Sharon Academy Middle School Graduation Ceremony has been intentionally designed to support the goals of our mission.  Students are publicly recognized for their strengths, thanked for their efforts, and honored for the transformation they have undergone during their middle school years.  All eighth grade students are required to speak and are expected to reflect on their own personal growth, and to appreciate the supporting role that others have played in their lives. Additionally, the Graduation Ceremony provides a forum for the 7th and 8th grade to perform the choral work that they have been practicing for the prior ten weeks.  We recognize that the ceremony is long, and while we have trimmed the ceremony a bit from recent years, we have consciously decided to continue our tradition of having each student speak and to have their advisor speak about them.  We ask that family members come with the understanding that our graduation program is an integral part of our curriculum. Please help us to support our students in this important transition to high school.
•       All students are expected to attend this event on June 10th from 6:30 – 9:00 PM.
•       Both the seventh and eighth grade will perform a choral program.
•       Each eighth grade student will give a short speech. Students will have time at school to write their speech. They should also be writing and practicing their speech at home. We will begin the speech writing process at the end of May.
•       Students are expected to dress slightly more formally than casual school.
•       Please consider bringing a bottle of water and a snack to make your evening more comfortable. There will also be some refreshments available during the ceremony. Dessert will be served following the ceremony.


Middle School Community Service Opportunity:
Wednesday, May 11th after school is dismissed at 1:00. Your time for the afternoon is appreciated.  What:  Help sort clothes for a clothing swap.  Location: Sharon Elementary School.  Contact: Jill Lloyd at 763-7425
