Principal's Corner

Good evening Saluda Trail Middle School Families:

We had another great week at STMS. Our students engaged in College and Career awareness activities. During our sixth grade Vehicle Day, students had the opportunity to learn about a variety of different vehicles and there purposes. We also hosted Reading night where families had an opportunity to learn about reading tools for students as well as how families can engage in literacy activities outside of the school setting.

In addition to the many activities our students engaged in, two Rock Hill Schools District School Board Members visited. Ms. Patrice Reid and Ms. Mildred Douglas, spoke with students, teachers, staff members, and visited classrooms. I am proud to say, they were impressed with what is taking place at our school.

This week Rock Hill Schools will observe Thanksgiving Break on the following dates: Wednesday, November 23, 2022- Friday, November 25, 2022. I wish our school community a happy Thanksgiving and we will see everyone Monday, November 28, 2022.
