    This year, for the first quarter, we will have student-teacher Mr. Thornhill working in our classroom!

    Mr. Thornhill is a student at UNCC, and we are super excited to have him here at SMS.

    Please be sure to read the letter he will send home with your student. 


    SMS Vision:

    Together, staff, families, and the community
    will inspire student success by encouraging lifelong learning.

    SMS Mission:

    We put students first by building relationships and nurturing the whole student
    in a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment.
    We will engage and empower our students to become effective, self-directed learners.

    My Classroom Mission

    My mission is for all students to become better readers and writers while learning about US and NC History,
    to expand their vocabulary,
    to have fun while learning,
    and to be college and career ready!
