PTA President's Note - 11/19/20

Please help us to wish a happy “Thanks”-giving to our wonderful Schimelpfenig staff members!  Pie Day is tomorrow, Friday, November 20th.  Please sign up by noon today to bring a store-bought pie(s) tomorrow before noon – F2F students can drop off pie donations in the front office before school and @Home parents can drop off pie donations on the cart that will be in front of the school on Friday morning.  


Our first-ever eSport tournament on Friday was a bit chaotic but ultimately a fun time!  Our winning team showed some impressive Rocket League gaming skills. Thanks to everyone who joined in our Virtual Fall Social!  


And don’t forget the remaining goals for our Healthy Lifestyles week:

  • Rethink Your Drink Thursday: increase your intake of water versus sugary drinks, try new ways to hydrate yourself!
  • Feeling Great Friday: show kindness and gratitude to others and yourself!
  • Wisdom Weekend: learn something new, try a new hobby, explore your community!


Here is some important information from PISD:

  • 3rd 9-Week Changes to Instructional Environment

Revised selection window:  November 17-November 30
(Originally scheduled selection window:  November 30-December 4)


The new window for selection is November 17-November 30 for all levels (elementary and secondary students). Students will be scheduled in the selected instructional environment, which will go into effect on January 5, 2021. If no changes are made in Parent Portal, then the current instructional environment will remain in effect until the fourth 9-week selection period opens. 

  • PISD Calendar for the 2021-2022 school year – PISD School Board presented three calendar options at the November 17th Work Session meeting.  The final calendar vote will take place at the December 8th School Board meeting.  Information regarding the three choices can be found in the Draft Calendar Presentation located HERE.

As always, feel free to contact me any time at with questions, problems, or if you just want to join our wonderful SMS PTA Board!  


Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from your SMS PTA Board!
