Upcoming Activities


A message from the principal

Dear Eagle Families,

We are having a successful school year! We are committed to our school mission to provide a learning environment that addresses the academic needs of your child. The mission of Greenwood Lakes Middle School is to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be productive citizens.

Along with teaching the curriculum, we are also preparing your child for the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). These computer-based assessments will begin in April 16th and continue through May 11th. Specific grade level information and dates will be sent out through Skyward Family Access and posted on our Greenwood Lakes Middle School calendar. Visit http://www.greenwoodlakes.scps.k12.fl.us for more details. Remember to update both your email and phone numbers in Skyward Family Access. You can do this at home by simply logging into and updating your contact information.

We encourage you to check out the types of questions your child will be asked to answer on these rigorous assessments. You can do this by going to http://fsassessments.org/students-and-families/practice-tests. You will then click “Take the Computer-Based Practice Tests”, click “Sign In” (no need to change the Guest log in information), select the grade level and click “Yes”, and then select the Student Practice Test you would like to take. All students will participate in a refresher of the FSA testing computer skills prior to the test. We appreciate any time you can devote to you and your students understanding of the FSA.

We have many great activities coming up in the second half of the year. We encourage all families to become involved by attending parent/teacher conferences. Our 8th Graders are looking forward both the 8th Grade Dance and Field Day. The 8th Grade Dance theme is Neon Lights and is on Friday, May 18th! Permission forms went home in December and need to be returned back to Mrs. Mims, Administrative Dean. Students need to see Mrs. Mims if they need another form. Ticket sales and additional information will follow. The 8th Grade Field Day will be on Tuesday, May 22nd after lunch. These events are for 8th Graders only and a privilege. Student Awards Ceremonies will also occur in Tuesday, May 15th at 6:00pm.

We believe that our students can do anything they wish to do and can be anything they wish to be. We want to provide hope and encouragement to all students to dream big and go after their dreams. If there is anything we can do to help your child, please do not hesitate to contact us.

As Always, Let’s SOAR Eagles!
