Something NEW!

During this semester, the students are beginning to prepare for the upcoming STAAR assessments that will be administered the end of March. The students are going to be learning at a quick pace, and will need to be focused and organized throughout the semester. To help with this task, students are going to be keeping folders of their homework and assignments throughout the semester. The folders will include:

  • Daily Homework/Test Log
  • Current and Past homework assignments
  • Grades for Assignments
  • References

The folder will be sent home every weekend for parent signature. The student will receive a 100 every week the folder is completely organized and signed by the parent/guardian. Thank you for your help in making your child's next semester at SMS great!
