Become a SMS Bearcat Builder!

SMS Bearcat Builders is an initiative to encourage parents, relatives, guardians, community members and other positive role models to become more active in our students’ education. The presence and involvement of parents/guardians and community partners protect children from many vulnerabilities. Engaged families and community members, whether living in or outside of home, help foster a child’s overall health and socio-emotional well-being. Statistics reveal when parents or positive role models are engaged in their student’s education they are more likely to:

• Learn more

• Perform better in school

• Exhibit healthier behavior

• Have fewer discipline problems

• Participate in extracurricular activities

• Enjoy school more


Sherman Middle School encourages parent and community involvement by:

1. Providing an opportunity for parents and community volunteers to get engaged.

2. Providing a structured environment for parents and community volunteers/student to have positive interactions.

3. Engaging parents/guardians in their children’s education.

4. Building stronger bonds between families, community members and our children.


Here are some ways you can be a part of what SMS is doing to become a "Bearcat Builder":

- Greeting at the door during arrival (High-fives & good mornings)

- Mentors

- Hallway greeters

- Lunch

- Building Projects

- Attend events

- Classroom connections: share careers, talents, etc..

and much more! Become a SMS HERO! Become a Bearcat Builder!
