Afterwards, students will bring home course selection forms for your approval and signature. Please sign and return the registration form AND the course selection form. They will be collected in home room Thursday, February 19th through Friday, February 27th.

Quest for the Cure Week: February 2nd -6th

SBMS Student Council is at it again, and this time, they are raising funds for another great cause, The Jimmy V. Foundation!

Each year, the V Foundation raises funds for cancer research, and as a result of its efforts, those affected by cancer have a sense of hope that there will one day be a cure.

We, Stone Bridge Middle School, will once again support the work of the V Foundation and will continue to join all of those affected in their fight against cancer- we ask you to join us in doing so as well.

As we do each year, the students and staff will participate in a number of activities and events that help to raise money for the cause.  Just last year, we were able to raise $5,242.85.  This year, we have set our goal at $5,500.00, and if I know the students, staff and community members that make up SBMS, I am sure that we will have no problem in meeting our goal!

The Quest for the Cure Week will kick off with the dance on January 30th and our rally on Monday, February 2nd.
