Schedule Rotates Monday, October 25th

At SMS this year the school wide schedule rotates when the students receive new specials. For the 2nd rotation we will be starting the day with F Block. Please see the new schedule below.


Why Rotate?


  • Athletes and Coaches do not miss the same class for sports all year.
  • Research shows that students learn best during different parts of the day. When we rotate the schedule periodically, we can take advantage of the optimal learning times.
  • Research has shown that a rotating schedule can have a positive impact on student success and behavior.
