Thank you to our sponsors from SCMS & Ms. Demyan, erin.demyan@spencer.kyschools.us.

We are excited to begin using the monitoring software GoGuardian.  This will allow us to more closely monitor students as they work online and provide an additional layer of security.  Each of our classrooms are equipped with 36 computers and a charging cart, so from this point forward no personal devices will be permitted as they cannot utilize certain tools needed throughout the day.  If you have any questions please contact me at matt.mercer@spencer.kyschools.us.  

Looking for leadership opportunities for your child?  Ms. Gabrie has STLP every Monday from 3-4pm.  If your son/daughter is interested in technology and/or leadership opportunities, contact our sponsor micayla.gabrie@spencer.kyschools.us for more info.  

Our next monthly SBDM meeting will be Dec. 12.  If you would like to attend virtually please email helen.detrich@spencer.kyschools.us for a link.
