Principal’s Message

Middle schools are incredible places! I don’t believe I have ever experienced the same day twice in a middle school setting. This wonderful time of life is full of adventure and our students reflect this with energy and curiosity which certainly keeps all of us, on the staff team, fresh and on our toes!  

As we prepare to start an unusual year, I want to assure parents that we will work diligently to keep students safe, engaged and happy. As students are looking to re-connect with their friends, we are confident that SMS will continue to be a positive and caring place to learn and grow. 

SMS Has a Lot to Offer!
