Every November, Schmucker Middle School has had a tradition of making Thanksgiving baskets for SMS families that are in need of some assistance over the holidays. This year we are getting creative to continue this awesome tradition!!
For the next few weeks during lunch, students will be able to purchase packs of gum for $1. The adults that help supervise lunch will be doing this while our supply of gum lasts! Please bring exactly ONE DOLLAR!! No large bills accepted! All money collected will be used to purchase turkeys for the Thanksgiving baskets.
During the week of November 9th, NJHS members will be collecting coins in the drop off/pick up line before and after school. We will also have people standing in the back by the buses in case you are a bus rider and would like to contribute.
We will also be hosting a Thanksgiving Food Drop Off on November 14th from 10am - Noon. We will be collecting non-perishable food to fill Thanksgiving food baskets for Schmucker families in need of some assistance this holiday season. Please have your food donations in a plastic bag or box for contactless drop off. We will be collecting food in front of the school from 10am until Noon on Saturday, Nov. 14th.

Attention SMS families:
Schmucker has a new digital library of e books students can now access at home. It's called Junior Library Guild Digital. This is a great service because there are no limits to the number of students who can read a book (so no waiting for it to be freed up!) and students can read as much as they want on it. It's a bit like Netflix for books, as there are about 30 or so titles that students can choose from, and they rotate out about every 2 months. Students can also bookmark, highlight, take notes, etc. on what they're reading as well. This is a fantastic resource for our IMC, and I'm so excited for students to use it!
Students can find the login at: Digital Library or they can access on the SMS website under "Students" "Library" and then "JLG Digital"
Students can login where it says “Sign in to personal account”
The login is:
Here is a quick video tutorial to help!
Students can email me at email@example.com with any questions!
Checking Grades & Report Cards
