It has been approved for SMS students to wear a specific SMS fleece pullover for next school year. Order your child's today! If you don't have an order form, please call the office for one to be sent home with your child.
****I challenge the students to GO TECH FREE on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
Daily reminders to focus, listen, and work quietly would be helpful.
Third grade students MUST wear belts. Please check to make sure your child has one on each morning! The belts should be brown or black. Thank you for your help with this.
