Hello parents, visitors and staff!

 Today I am writing to let you all know about a concerted effort that we are making regarding the student pick up area in front of the school. The aim of this is to keep our students and families safe while we move many people through what is admittedly a tight area. If you have ever ended up stuck waiting on Davis to turn into our front parking lot you probably already know it fills up fast. What we are asking from you is this; When you pick up, pull all the way to the front of the line. As space is made available please continue to pull forward allowing those stuck out on Davis to pull into the parking lot. This allows them to stop blocking the traffic behind them. Another issue is cars being left unattended. Please; if you are not parked in a marked parking space we cannot have you leave your vehicle for any amount of time.

 Thank you for your help and cooperation as we try to make SMMS a safer place.

A Note from the Principal:

As a school we are committed to keeping students safe and feel welcomed and valued.  Unfortunately, instances of bullying behavior occur and we take each and every situation seriously.  I want to encourage you to talk with your child about their daily experiences here at South Meadows and reinforce the message that we are here to support them and need to know when there is a problem.  When bullying behavior begins we need to know so we can act swiftly and resolve the situation.  Too often these behaviors go on unreported and unnoticed, and the child experiencing the bullying feels isolated and alone.  Help us work together to make sure this doesn’t happen. 

Thank you.

Becky Smith




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. Smith know (smithbe@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.


Did you know, we have a facebook page
If you haven’t joined, it’s another great way to network with other parents and also get info about events. 
This is a closed group, so you will need to ask to join and be approved.
