Students are working hard to make attendance a priority and making every day count- our progress challenge and team winners are: 6th Grade, Cruisers, 7th, Discoverers, 8th Crusaders. We will be challenging students upon their return to meet a different behavior goal, but ask for parents to continue to support attendance at school and keeping sick students home when needed. Thank you!


SMS teachers are in the process of recommending students to take the Iowa Algebra Aptitude test to determine the best middle school math placement for students and assess readiness for the rigors of an Honors math class. However, parents do have the option to request that their student take this test as well.

If your student is not currently in an honors or advanced 6th or 7th grade math class and you wish for your student to be considered for an accelerated math course, please fill in the form below. Students who are entered into this form will be given the opportunity to test to see if they are able to be considered for this path. The test will be administered mid-January. Please finalize your request by January 3, 2023. Thank you.

Here is the Google Form to fill out. Thank you.
