Southern Middle School Mission Statement
At Southern Middle School our mission is to create a positive learning atmosphere that nurtures active, young creative minds. Through a collaborative effort with teachers, parents, and community members, students are challenged to meet our school’s high expectations. The school’s academic program of study infuses technology, teaches life skills, and encourages students to actively participate in their learning. The school’s curriculum encompasses the development of the total child: moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. As a result, students will be able to demonstrate values that allow them to act with empathy toward humanity in a diverse and ever-changing society.
2021-2022 STUDENT SCHEDULES ARE NOW VISIBLE ON POWERSCHOOL
Student class schedules for the 2021-2022 school year can now be accessed through PowerSchool. The course levels were assigned based on student performance and teacher recommendations. Related Arts placements were assigned based on student preference to the extent possible and availability of space. Keep in mind that this year we are required to maintain 3 feet social distancing and that limits our ability to overfill sections.
Changes may occur during the first 10 days of the semester.
Changes occur for the following reasons:
* student has an incomplete schedule.
* student desires to move to a more advanced level of course work.
* student’s program necessitates a change via the IEP process.
* teacher recommends the student be moved to a different level based on the student’s needs and provides the documentation
demonstrating this need.
A student schedule change WILL NOT occur based on request for a specific teacher or desire to be with a different peer group.
