Welcome to Seymour Middle School

School Starts Tuesday, September 1st!!

Welcome Back SMS Families!

On behalf of the staff at SMS, I am happy to extend a welcome back to our returning students, and welcome to our newcomers at Seymour Middle School.  We are excited to begin the 2015-16 school year and look forward to working with you to ensure your child’s success.

The summer has been busy at SMS.  Our teachers spent time learning, growing, collaborating, and preparing for new curriculum and new strategies to differentiate the instruction to meet the needs of all our students.    Office and custodial staff has done an amazing job getting our facilities ready for another great school year.  It has been a huge team effort to prepare for the new school year.  All we await for now, is the arrival of our students.

We truly believe that communication is the key to your child’s success.  Our dedicated staff works hard to meet the individual needs of students, and develop positive connections with families.    We know that a strong partnership with parents and the community will make a difference in your child’s education. I’d like to invite you to visit our new and updated school’s website.   This will serve as a resource tool for upcoming events, student/parent handbook, important reminders and quarterly newsletters.

Please enjoy the remaining days of summer.  We look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces on the first day of school on September 1, 2015.

Respectfully,

Judy Schenk

SMS Principal
