Solomon-Plains Middle School News

Important Information from Mr. Correll, Principal

Happy Summer, 

I hope everyone’s summer vacation is off to a wonderful start! In order for families to be prepared for the next upcoming school year, I’m writing to share some important information with each of you. The much-anticipated end-of-year reports are almost ready to be posted to Skyward Family Access. The final report cards will indicate if your student is promoted to the next grade, if summer school is required for grades 6–8, or if your child will be retained in the current grade level. If your grade 6–8 student requires summer school, a separate letter will be mailed by our guidance department. If you have specific questions once the final report cards are posted, please contact our Solomon Guidance Department. 

Over the summer, my school leadership team has the responsibility of assigning each student to a classroom, homeroom, or schedule for the following year. In order to provide the best education and experience possible, among the many things considered during this process are student abilities, learning styles, boy/girl ratios, teaching styles, and the special needs of students. My school leadership team works collaboratively with specialists, teachers, and others to create rosters for the upcoming school year. 

At the Solomon-Plains Educational Complex, we have a fantastic team of teachers who are ready to support all of our students. I am confident that your child(ren) will thrive in any of their classrooms, as they are all phenomenal at supporting students and their individual needs. Please know that due to the size of our school, staffing movements, and the complexity of the placement process, our school or district does not accept any requests for specific teachers. Also, please know that teacher assignments for 2023–2024 will not be available via your parent account until the end of August. In addition, classroom assignments/homeroom/schedules will not be finalized until the day prior to the start of school. 

 

Special Note for Summer 2024:

Our complex will be getting some much-needed updates again this summer. Therefore, our normal summer hours, Monday–Thursday, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., may be interrupted due to the construction occurring. If you are in need of any of the following, I suggest calling the main office prior to coming to the school.

Over the summer, I ask that all families check our homework and read our school's e-mails in their entirety to ensure you have up-to-date information as it is released. At any time you need assistance, don't hesitate to contact the main office during normal summer hours! I wish everyone a very happy, healthy, and safe summer break. I will look forward to hearing about all the fun and exciting learning experiences your families have enjoyed over the summer! 

 

Thank you!

Mr. Correll, Principal

Final Day of School & Happy Summer

Greetings, Solomon-Plains Families,
With tomorrow being our last day of school for the 2023-2024 school year, we have officially reached the end of a school year like no other. Despite all of the many changes, our students and staff have persevered together and grown stronger as a result. Teachers have been challenged to adapt lesson delivery approaches to keep students engaged. Support staff have all taken on additional roles and responsibilities to assist students with various parts of their day. Students have also supported one another, both socially and emotionally. And parents, guardians, and caregivers have been there every step of the way to support their children and the school staff. It has definitely been a team approach that has allowed the school community at Solomon-Plains Complex to maintain focus throughout the year.

As we wind down the year, I would like to take this opportunity to wish our grade 8 students a fond farewell and success as they move on to academic and extracurricular opportunities in high school. I would also like to acknowledge staff who will be leaving Solomon-Plains Complex at the end of the school year. I wish you the best of luck and thank you for the lasting impact you’ve had on the staff and students at both Solomon-Plains Elementary and Middle Schools. I would also like to extend my best wishes to all students and families who will be moving away and leaving our school community over the summer. 

As we prepare for the next school year, we are excited to welcome our incoming kindergarten students to our elementary school and incoming 6th graders to our middle school. In addition to our returning staff, there will also be new faces on staff next year. Our hope is that we can thrive together in 2024–2025 to really show the greater community that great things happen here. With that, I would like to wish students, parents, caregivers, and school staff a safe, restful, and rewarding summer. Hopefully, we will all get the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends and come back to school with a sense of rejuvenation in the fall.

Respectfully and with gratitude,
Mr. Justin Correll,
Solomon-Complex Principal

Please join us on Monday, June 10, 2024, from 4:00–5:30 p.m. to peruse our gently used books, titles, and genres.
