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.

Dear South Meadows parents and families,

It's hard to believe that half of the school year is almost over and spring is just around the corner.  Where did 2014 go?   It's been an amazing school year so far and I'm looking forward to all the things coming up in the next few months. If you want to be kept in the loop for happenings at South Meadows, please send me an email and I will include you in my parent updates.  Email me at smithbe@hsd.k12.or.us to be added to this list. 

Please keep in mind that we DO want and need volunteers at the middle level.  If you have time and are interested in helping out, please call or email and we can talk about options that best suit your skills and abilities. 

Finally, April 9 will be our third annual college and career day.  If you are willing and able to present to students about your college and career path, please email Geri Claxton at smms.career.day@gmail.com

Take care and have a wonderful day!


Becky Smith
