Principal's Message

  • Dear Parents/Guardians:

    During the month of February, we had students compete in the Regional Spelling Bee and Math Counts competitions.  Once again, our students made SMS proud by their overall performance in both of these competitions. SMS hosted our annual talent show.  We saw solo acts of singing, playing the electric viola, piano, sock puppets and the human beat box. We could not be more proud of our students for their courage to perform their acts in front of the entire student body!   

    I would like to congratulate SMS for coming in 1st place in the secondary school division for the annual Battle of the Buildings.  A huge thank you to all the students and their parents for cheering us on to victory!

    All scheduling information was sent home to parents regarding course recommendations and requests for the 2019-2020 school year.  Once these recommendation sheets are returned to the school, we will begin to build the master schedule for the next school year. Our goal is to provide a schedule to meet the needs of each of our students.

    Below are some other important dates for March 2019: 

    • Monday, March 4th: Start of Spring Sports
    • Thursday, March 7th: Trimester 2 ends
    • Friday, March 8th:  Trimester 3 starts

    Have a great Spring or not, the choice is yours!
