We are pleased to maintain this website as a resource for our students and families.

They will also help you get in touch with school staff, help your child get extra help, access the Student/Parent Handbook, common documents, immunization requirements, schedules, lunch menus, transportation, and a host of other information. to get automatic updates as we post them.

Middle school is an important time in your child's education. It helps student shift their focus from a single teacher to several teachers and from external supports to his/her own personal educational ownership and responsibility. Students explore more sophisticated and thought provoking ideas in their reading, they embark on more rigorous math, begin to tackle advanced reading; engage in higher-level, more rigorous math; choose from a wide array of elective offering; and are encouraged to participate in the social, service, and athletic fabric of the school community.
Parental involvement in a child’s education is essential for academic success. We invite you to visit our school regularly, attend parent teacher conferences, and participate in the SJMS Community Group (our middle level parent-teacher-community organization, or PTO). If you require additional assistance, do not hesitate to contact the school using the phone numbers listed at right.
