Hello SMS Bronc Students and Families!
Welcome to the 2023 – 2024 school year! 

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits.  As we embark on a new academic year, I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to all our students, both returning and new, along with their families to Sunridge Middle School.  It is with great anticipation and excitement that we begin this journey together, with a shared commitment to educational excellence and personal growth. 

As we move forward, I assure you that the well-being, safety, and educational progress of our students remain our top priorities.  We have implemented comprehensive measures and protocols to ensure a secure and conducive learning environment.  Our dedicated team of educators and support staff have been working diligently to prepare for the academic year, designing engaging and meaningful learning experiences that cater to the diverse needs of our students.

This year, we will continue to foster a culture of collaboration, inclusivity, and respect within our school community.  We believe in the power of teamwork and the significance of a strong partnership between home and school.  I encourage you to actively engage in your child’s education, maintain open lines of communication, and participate in school activities and events whenever possible.  Together, we can provide the support and guidance our students need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I encourage you to stay connected with our school through ParentVue, Remind, the district website (www.pendleton.k12.or.us) and school website (sms.pendleton.k12.or.us), social media channels, and regular communication updates.  These platforms will provide you with important announcements, academic resources, and information about upcoming events.  Additionally, please do not hesitate to reach out to our dedicated staff members should you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.  We value your feedback and are committed to continuous improvement. 

Once again, welcome back to Sunridge Middle School. Let us embrace this new academic year with enthusiasm and a determination to achieve greatness.  Together, we will overcome any obstacles, celebrate achievements, and create a thriving learning community where every student can flourish.  

Thank you for your unwavering support, and I look forward to a successful and rewarding year ahead.
