Our Sea Lion Boys volleyball team went undefeated this season! They will have their first playoff game against Odessey Middle on December 6th, here at 5:30PM.  Our Sea Lion Girls had a fantastic season and played some very competitive volleyball this season.  I can't wait to see them play next year!  
Progess reports went home Thursday and are posted on Skyward Family Access.  If you need to schedule a conference with a teacher or teachers, please contact Ms. Matzner in the front office.  I am proud to say that around 600 students received honor roll certificates for the for first nine weeks!  I can't wait to see how many honor-roll certificates I will be signing for the first semester!  
I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving Break with family and friends.  Our school will be closed next week in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  Thank you for your continued support of Southwest Middle School, and remember, GO SEA LIONS!
