A Message from Principal Johnson

Greetings SMS Family,

We are marching our way through with only three months left in this school year. Our students are doing an amazing job in the classrooms and displaying positive behaviors. As we prepare for GA Milestones in April, I need our students to start coming in on weekly help days for additional support. Our school will offer Milestone Bootcamps, but we can only serve a certain number of students based on staffing. During the weekly help sessions, students can come in for help in all subject areas Monday through Friday.

As always, if you need anything please contact the school. Our goal is to continue providing support for our students, parents, and staff members.

Be sure to mark your calendar with some important dates below!! Students are taking Interim Exams starting this week and continuing through next week. Make sure your child is studying at least 30 - 60 minutes per night to prepare for the exams.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events!!

Mrs. Johnson
