We would like to congratulate our April Students of the Month here at the Shenandoah Middle School. Students earn "The Mustang Way" cards for being respectful, responsible, and being safe throughout the month from teachers and staff. Those cards are then used to select the winners for each month. Those winners then receive an award for being chosen. This month's winners are:
Tyler Haffner, Terin Courtier, Ryan Love, and Breanna Black

K-8 Families-- You can definitely tell it is Spring... warm, cool, rain, sun... all the things blooming. You can also tell just by looking at our students. They all want to just go run and play... ok maybe not all the middle schoolers... they just want to be out and moving.
Happy Mother's Day!
Thank you to everyone who sent a message or gift to our teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week. It was great to celebrate them with treats and other things!
We are wrapping up all of our end of year testing and many of our students have shown very good growth, I will be able to share that data when we finish out the year.
Monday the MS track teams will finish their season with the H-10 Conference meets. The boys will be in Creston while the girls travel to Harlan. Best of luck to those teams!
4th-6th grade parents: The Shenandoah Medical Center and the Athletic Boosters have teamed up to provide Acceleration Camp for any current 4th-6th grader this summer for FREE! Please see the attached letter for more details.
Friday, May 14 the 5th and 6th grade will be having their "track and field" day down at Mustang Field. This will take place in the afternoon and more details were sent out in a separate email.
I am sure all the other grades have some special things planned for their grade levels too.
Again, don't forget about Middle School Showcase Night on May 18. We are still getting things organized but the time frame will be from about 5:30-7:30 with the 7/8 band and choir performing, student artwork being displayed, and some other fun demonstrations from some of our elective classes.
Lastly, please note on your calendar that the last day of school is May 21 and it is a 1:25 early out day.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Thanks and have a great week! --Mr. Burdorf #horsepower
Shenandoah Community School District is thrilled to introduce Ignite, which will offer flexible, personalized, enriching educational experiences to Shenandoah students starting in the 2021-22 school year.
As a virtual learning option, Ignite will maximize student learning potential using a personalized education plan that includes access to core instruction through traditional or online learning, career technical education programs, or other specialized teaching and learning. Students will be engaged in a continuum of service, which could include one or more of the following: online learning, blended learning, project-based learning, and work-based learning and/or apprenticeships.
The Ignite program may be appropriate for families who homeschool as there are many options for the district to support your child that may be on-campus, off-campus, in small groups or online learning while they learn from home.
All students are issued a district-owned Chromebook which passes all activity through the district's internet filter. For students that don't have access to the internet, the district provides internet service at 4 locations throughout Shenandoah and at each of the district's 3 school buildings.
Ignite students will follow the Shenandoah Community School District Academic Calendar. Students will be expected to log in and make academic progress daily to be counted present for attendance purposes. Families are still responsible for student attendance and participation in Ignite.
