SMS Open House for Monday, Aug. 21 Cancelled

posted Aug 18, 2017, 12:30 PM by Jeanette Godfrey   [ updated Aug 18, 2017, 12:31 PM ]

As everyone is aware, while we are not in the “path of totality” for the eclipse on August 21st, the Metro area is expected to be impacted, at a minimum, by traffic issues.  With that in mind, some of your staff may find traffic challenges getting places on the day of the eclipse.

In addition, as a result of the bond measure, Sherwood Middle School has construction taking place in some areas of the building.  Workers and equipment will be in the building on Monday, therefore, access is limited to these portions of the building on Monday.

In order to ensure the safety of our staff, students, and parents, we will not be holding Open House Registration on Monday, August 21st.  The Open House Schedule for the remainder of the week will remain unchanged.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

SMS 7th Grader Wins National Contest

posted Jan 6, 2017, 3:22 PM by Jeanette Godfrey

Lisa Jacobs, a 7th grader at SMS,  won the grand prize award in a contest earlier this year called "Draw Your Own Graphic Novel".  The contest was sponsored by best-selling young adult author Raina Telgemeier, who wrote Smile, Sisters and Ghosts. Lisa Jacobs illustrated her favorite scene from the book "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" as part of the Chronicles of Narnia (see attached) in graphic novel form, and because her entry was chosen as the top entry from across the US, she won a classroom Skype session with Ms. Telgemeier taking place later on this month, and the class wins a pizza party to celebrate as well as their own individual copies of her newest book, Ghosts. We surprised her with this news on Wednesday. January 4th.
