Good Afternoon Bulldogs! As a part of Mrs. Tillett’s class unit on civic duty, our eighth graders spent some time doing community service around the building, cleaning up, picking up trash and helping their community. SMS students and staff are the best!

Good Morning Bulldogs! We’ve been a little offline the last couple of days, we were having issues with our sharing program here. We’re back up and running again, so we thought we’d share better late than never a photo of our high school and middle school choir caroling at the community tree lighting ceremony on Sunday. Great job Mrs. Jmaeff and choir!

Happy Thanksgiving Bulldogs! As we gather today for meals and a long weekend with family we reflect on the things that we are thankful for. This year the SMS staff are thankful for full days with our students and a return to “normal” school all day, every day. With this return we get the opportunity to do what we love, educate and care for the young people of our community that you entrust us with. We are blessed to work in a community that supports our schools and trusts us with its most precious resource, it’s future. We are thankful for amazing students and families that step up when our community is in need. When we asked for help filling baskets for Thanksgiving for families, you overfilled 14 baskets, with enough to fill them again for Christmas baskets AND more that we will work with the local food bank to distribute. When we raised money for a local family facing medical challenges, your brought in $2500 to help. Your generosity proves that middle school students can do amazing things. As principal, I’m thankful for a staff that goes the extra mile every day. Planning lessons, grading papers, coaching teams, and going out to find things that support our students and families, often with their own money, time and resources. We have the most amazing staff at SMS and it is my privilege to serve with such dedicated educators. As you gather together this weekend and enjoy some much deserved rest, know that your school family is thankful for you and the opportunity to serve our community. Enjoy your holiday and time with family. We look forward to seeing you Monday.
