5th graders & parents, sign up now for Instrument Selection Night!

Students who will be in 6th grade next year use the "Instrument Selection Night" as an opportunity to handle and test a variety of band and orchestra instruments.  Professional music teachers are on hand to help “pair” each student with an instrument on which they will find great success in their middle school music experience! 

As students are making choices about music classes in 6th grade, it is critical that they be able to try a variety of instruments in order to make an informed decision about what class and which instrument they prefer.

Schmucker's "Project To Be Kind" featured on ABC 57's Cool Schools

Friday, January 15, was not your typical school day at Schmucker Middle School.  When students opened their lockers at the start of the day, each found a small handwritten note inside, placed there to surprise and inspire.  Nearly 1,000 notes had been created and placed the night before by students and staff on a mission to carry out Project To Be Kind. The schoolwide effect was obvious: smiles, laughter, chatter, gratitude.
