What Is The M 'n M?

Mustangs In The Middle- M 'n M- is the weekly principal's newsletter that highlights all things that are taking place here at the new Strongsville Middle School. You will receive these newsletters monthly throughout the summer and once school begins, you will begin receiving them weekly.


Welcome, families. It is truly going to be an exciting school year!

Building/ Construction Updates

Within the next couple of weeks, we will receive TCO (Temporary Certificate of Occupancy) in which the keys will be turned over to the district. This is exciting stuff! There is still work to be done and changes to be made over the next couple months. But, everything in on schedule as planned. Custodians will soon begin moving equipment and boxes in, along with the building being cleaned from head to toe. Beginning in August, staff may enter the building to work and prepare their rooms for opening day. Come Tuesday, Aug. 23, this place will be teeming with excitement as the first day of school will arrive.

Schedules

Later this summer, student schedules may become viewable through your child's PASS account. Please understand that these schedules are not set in stone. All schedules are subject to change as we work to solidify the master schedule for the start of the school year.

New SMS Website

The new website for Strongsville Middle School is currently under construction. Once it has been fine-tuned and up and running, I will send you a link in the M 'n M. Thank you, for your patience.
