A Message from the Principal

Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin our new year with all the beautiful new additions to South! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of extracurricular clubs and activities, performing arts groups, and athletic teams certain to encourage our Stallions to be involved and stay connected!

 During the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education.  Our vision remains to provide a safe and supportive school environment for all students social, emotional, and academic needs to prepare every student for graduation. 


 Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all facets of our South Middle School program --- Academics, The Arts, Athletics, Activities, and Altruistic Endeavors.

 We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We want and value your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Active participation is key to the success of your Stallion during his/her middle school years.

 Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at South Middle.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.  Please know that we have a new updated website and will be using a new online grading system.  You may also find it helpful to keep up with school events on our Facebook and Twitter page.   

 Again, we welcome you to South and to our wonderful learning community.  Our school is a place alive with much energyenthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence!  It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!
