What's New?

  • You told us and we listened! The Friday Review design is a little different. We will now have the weekly calendar at the TOP of the page. Normal weekly events will appear in normal text; special events for the week will be in BOLD ITALICS for more attention. We love your suggestions... keep them coming!
  • If you tutor after school and are getting paid for it, you must clock in and clock out. If you do not clock in or clock out, it will be assumed that you are providing tutoring without pay.

General Reminders

  • The Book Fair started on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd and continues through Friday, March 3rd. ELA teachers may sign up to bring their classes to preview items if they wish to, but purchases must be made during lunch. ELA teachers may send FIVE students at a time during lunch, exclusively. They should show you the money they intend to spend and they should come back to you with items they purchased, along with a receipt. Do not allow students to come to the Media Center to look at Book Fair merchandise, unattended. They should only preview in a class setting, with their teacher present for added security. Homeroom teachers: please take some Spartan time to have your kids watch the Book Fair commercials that are on the website.

  • If you have a substitute and need for them to login to a laptop so they can show students, feel free to provide the sub login for them so you don’t have to give them yours. It is: USERNAME=shmssub PASSWORD=shms1234!

  • Mark your calendars for important upcoming PBIS dates and information. The numbers to participate in the 3rd quarter PBIS celebration are: 2-man team: 120, 3-man team: 160, 4-man team: 200) by March 30. Student names are due to Michelle William on Friday, March 31 and the event will be held on April 4.
  • Students are only to be sent to Ms. Laws when notified by the teacher. Do not send students to Ms. Laws without ensuring she is in her office. Students are often caught wondering around when she is out of the office. ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PASS TO BE IN THE HALLWAYS. Teachers, we need your assistance in enforcing this!
  • Teachers: Do not allow students to go back to the cafeteria in the morning for breakfast. Students should go straight to breakfast when they get to school, not dropping off belongings in homeroom and then going to breakfast. We need everyone's help in making sure this happens.
  • Barnes & Noble: My Favorite Teacher Contest: (Middle and High school students can participate) Students write an essay, poem. Or thank-you letter (50 words or less, in English on 8.5” x 11” white paper) sharing how a teacher has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them. Each entry should be submitted with the entry form and a parent or legal guardian must sign the entry form acknowledging that they have read the Official Contest Rules. Participating schools will collect the essays and provide them to their local Barnes & noble store representative my March 1, 2017. Mrs. Jamilia Williams will coordinate the collection of the essays. The students can win up to 500 and a NOOK device and the teachers can win up to 5000! Completed essays with entry forms need to be placed in her box. Note: Every Student assigned to ISS through the end of February will participate in this contest.
