Information for Parents

Intermediate & Advanced Band Concert: Thursday will be the first Fall Band Concert since December 2019! Mr. Dyer and Mr. Crane are very excited to have students performing again. The concert will be from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the SMS main gym.


Coming Soon: SMS will soon be hosting two new clubs. The first will be the Archery Club run by Mr. Simpson. This club will be offered two days per week so that more students may participate. There will be a fee for this club due to the cost of supplies used. The second club will be a Dungeons & Dragons Club run by Mr. Rowberg. Details on this club are limited and will be provided soon. Please watch for more information on both clubs. If your student will need transportation home after club meetings, please see the information below regarding the Activities Bus.


Scholastic Reading Club: Ordering books using Scholastic helps the SMS Archer library! Orders are placed on or before the third Friday of each month September through May (with the exceptions of December). Place your order online or by using the flyer and a check. PLEASE NO CASH.
