New Chromebooks

Over the next few weeks, we will begin the process of collecting Chromebooks of 8th grade students and assigning them their new Chromebooks that they will keep for the duration of their High School career. In order to assign a new Chromebook, parents/guardians must complete the user agreement form below. Please complete the form as soon as possible so your child can receive their new Chromebook.

Siena College “Career Jam” Field Trip

The 8th grade class will take a trip to Siena College on Tuesday, May 23 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. to be introduced to, and explore various career opportunities available right here in the Capital Region. Students will also receive a guided tour of campus and return to the Middle School prior to lunch. Students are encouraged to participate in the Spirit Week, as well as represent their school by wearing their Schalmont gear on this day. You should also have received a permission slip and returned it to school. If you have not, please contact the Middle School Guidance Office to receive another copy so that your child is able to attend.
