SMS PTA President's Note - 5/23/22

It's the last week of school!  Students will be MAP testing and taking finals in their high-school level classes -- Good luck to everyone!  On Thursday, March 26th, students will turn in their Chromebooks; on Friday, March 27, students should not bring backpacks to school!  Early release will be at 12:40. 


This past week, Schimelpfenig MS celebrated 8th grade students with a graduation & awards ceremony on Wednesday and an extended lunch & party on Friday.  Thank you to our Schimelpfenig staff for putting together and participating in the ceremony honoring our 8th grade class, and to the women's choir group for adding their beautiful voices to the ceremony.  This group of 8th grade students left school for spring break on March 6, 2020 and did not return to the building until September 2020 or, in some cases, August 2021.  This class had some unique challenges during their middle school years, but persevered and are dispersing to various area high schools next year. Good luck to them in their future endeavors!  And, thank you to all our wonderful parent volunteers who helped with the 8th grade party on Friday. 


On Thursday, May  20th, we had our last SMS PTA General Membership Meeting of the 2021-22 school year. We passed budget amendments to carry the PTA through the summer and into the next school year, met with new PTA board members, and shared our successes for the year.  A few items to announce:

  • Our PTA Scholarship Award Recipient this year is:  Isobel Hutson!  Isobel spent her three middle school years at Schimelpfenig, where she was inspired by her teachers to pursue education as a field of study in college.  In high school, Isobel participated in various extra-curricular activities, including Cheer, NHS, and Student Council, volunteered, and continued to excel at her studies. She is graduating from Plano Senior High School and will be using this scholarship to help fund her college education at Texas Tech. Congratulations Isobel!
  • Financial Reconciliation Committee -- We need 2-3 more people to volunteer to serve on the Financial Reconciliation committee. This is an important process that our PTA must go through at the end of every fiscal year (which is June 30th), and we need your help!  The reconciliation will take place toward the end of July, at a time and place convenient to the group.  Please contact me at if you can volunteer to help!
  • School Supplies are on sale through May 27!  Please purchase your student's supplies online at today!
  • Our spring Membership drive is underway.  Please go to our website at to become a member of the 2022-23 Schimelpfenig MS PTA!
