The end of the year is here, and we couldn't be prouder of all of your hard work and dedication that you've poured into the 2019-2020 school year! Through this year, with its trials and tribulations, you've learned perseverance, patience, and grit. These are qualities that will aid you in your future as you continue to grow. Never stop dreaming, achieving, and reaching for the stars! You are an amazing group of students and when you put your mind to something, nothing will ever get in your way!

K - 12 Educational Plan (On-Line Learning)


Sturgis Williams Middle School


Teachers will be sending out communication to families through email to keep everyone informed of daily activities. Students are required to check into their google classroom or Schoology courses daily, and complete the assigned work provided. Teachers will hold “office hours” (communicated to families in email) for parents or students to email or meet via Zoom with any questions.


Thank you for your patience during this challenging time.  We will continue looking at how to create a home-school balance and support families through communication and clear expectations.  Please contact us with any questions and/or concerns.
