"We exist to inspire every learner every day."

We imagine SMS as a school where:
  • Every student is immersed in relevant, engaging and meaningful learning experiences 
  • Every administrator, teacher and staff member works interdependently and positively in a collaborative community to promote student growth
  • Every child and adult is empowered and enjoys his or her work

Reminder to SMS Visitors

Please remember to bring your driver's license when visiting our school during school hours (between 8am - 3:15pm). Our new visitor scanning system requires us to check all visitors in with drivers licenses or another form of photo identification.

Hot Topic of the Month

Smarter Balanced Assessment:
Our new state testing program will begin upon our return from the February Break. Past years, the school has administered the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) each October. This year, we will be assessing our third, fourth and fifth grade students with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium during the month of March. The tentative window of assessment commences on March 17-27 for 3rd grade; March 30-April 10 for 4th grade; and April 13-24 for 5th grade. One significant difference will be the use of technology with a computer adaptive test. 

For more information and to see what children will be asked to know and do, please refer to the Smarter Balanced website:
