SEM website update

Our content is being moved onto a new platform.  When the transfer is complete, this website will again have all the content and a whole lot MORE!

Look forward to a VASTLY improved calendar function, as well as sub-sites being available for our newly formed SEM Foundation, and each teacher, club, or activity on campus.

We will also give voice to Townview "Shared Services" who don't have easy website access to feature their content. You'll soon be able to read about the library, attendance office, infirmary, central room bookings, vending machines, Townview policies and calendar, band, orchestra, ROTC, art, nursery school, etc.

The website,,  will become more of a PTSA website linked from this new website - maintaining the easy volunteer forms for events, selling of spirit gear & PTSA memberships, accepting donations, and maintaining our family directory.  So... the two websites will work jointly together to complement each other.

Please contact our webmaster should you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns or would like to be in the web group carrying out these improvements.

Thank you for your patience as we move to improve your on-line experience.
