Incoming 5th Grade Parent/Guardian Night

Good afternoon,
We will be having our Incoming 5th-grade Parent/Guardian Night on Tuesday, June 11th at 5:30 pm in the Swampscott Middle School Library.  THIS EVENT IS FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS ONLY.
Please see the following links for more information about SMS, the Program of Studies, and a website that looks at the benefits of waiting to give your child a smartphone.  We are also encouraging parents to wait until 8th-grade to give their child smartphones.  We are confident that they will be happier and healthier without it!

Smartphones –

We look forward to seeing all of you on June 11th!

WIN Block

Podcast symbolDear Parents and Guardians,

We are extremely excited to offer a new opportunity open to students here at Swampscott Middle School. This new program, known as Win Block, allows students to choose from two dozen learning groups based on their own unique passions and interests.

Win Block will take place during Advisory (8:05-8:35) on every Wednesday morning from December 12th to March 13th. While Win Block will not be graded, we do expect a full attendance commitment once a student enrolls.

Students who are currently enrolled in Band or Chorus during this time are expected to honor that commitment.

We are hopeful that this enrichment opportunity has something to offer everyone, knowing that all of our students possess such a diverse array of interests, talents, and skill sets.

Students are encouraged to sign up for this unique opportunity. However, students who would rather stay in a regular Advisory block will be able to do so.

Sign-ups for Win Block will close on Friday, Dec 7th at 2:00 pm.  Students may choose from our list of offerings below.

For optimum benefit, we will limit enrollment.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
