Sunday Night Call Week of 9-27-21

Good Evening Sierra Madre Parents & Students, this is Mr. Newsom with some important information about the upcoming week at our middle school.

ESSER III Town Hall Meeting: Thursday, September 30
The Pasadena Unified School District is in the planning and writing stages of an approximately $40 million grant for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III). These funds are designated for use in helping PUSD ensure that our schools continue to be safe for in-person learning, addressing the learning & social-emotional needs of students, and the implementation of learning loss intervention/mitigation strategies to accelerate learning.

This Thursday evening at 6:00pm, SMMS will be hosting a virtual Town Hall meeting (see link below) to share information about the ESSER III funds, how they can be applied, and some of the activities our district is considering utilizing the funds for.  Your feedback and input will assist PUSD in understanding the priorities and needs of our families in developing the ESSER III Plan
