A Note from the Principal:

Dear South Meadows Students and Families,

Welcome to South Meadows Middle School! It is an exciting time for your students as they enter into the middle years. This is a time of self- discovery, extended learning and preparation for High School and beyond. Our staff takes pride in their work with students and they also work to ensure that students, too, take PRIDE in all they accomplish. At SMMS this is what PRIDE means to us:

  • Perseverance
  • Responsibility
  • Integrity
  • Diversity
  • Excellence

These words represent what we are about and what we expect from all who teach and learn here.

The next two years are critical years for your student and although your child may seem more independent, he or she still needs your constant support. I encourage you to become a part of the life of middle school!    There are many ways you can be involved.  Visit our website for more information on how you can volunteer and contribute to the success of your child’s middle school experience.

Finally, when you receive a student handbook please review the critical information with your child.  Students will also review this information through advisory lessons.

Once again, welcome!  I’m looking forward to working with you and your student in the coming year and making this a positive step in your child’s future.  Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Here is a list of the opportunities we have for activities both before and after school:

 1.       Drama – currently play practice is underway so students cannot join to act, but if someone is interested in helping in another way, they can contact Mr. Stein for details.

2.       Chess ClubTuesday mornings at 7:30 AM in the library and is led by a former professional chess player, Mike Pittman.  Players are needed, so come if you are interested!

3.       Homework ClubTuesday and Wednesday after school in room 110. 

4.       Battle of the Books – Thursday during advisory in the library.  It may be too late to join, but check with Ms. Raglione.

5.       Soccer and Volleyball – have been going on for a few weeks and it’s too late to join at this point.  Basketball for boys and volleyball for girls will be our winter sports activities and I will send home the registration form when it becomes available.

6.       Jazz bandMonday’s after school. See Mr. Massey if you are interested.

A couple of clubs students are asking for are break dancing and the Magic card game.  Students are encouraged to begin a club if they have an interest, but they must have an adult advisor.  If you are willing and able to supervise one of these clubs, please let Ms. Mendez know mendezm@hsd.k12.or.us so that she can put you in touch with the students and come up with a plan.  Also, if you have an idea for an after school activity, let her know and we’ll see if we can get some kids interested in joining.  The more things we can offer after school the better it is for our students.  Activity busses are available.

Are you aware of the Hillsboro School District app? 
It is fairly new and you may not know about it... 
The app is a wonderful way to get communication regarding the district and your school.  
SMMS has begun pushing notifications out through the app to remind people about events, so you might find it useful.
