Principal's Message

Welcome to Smokey Road Middle School, Home of the Wildcats.

I am very proud and honored to serve as your Principal.  Striving to Reach and Motivate Students continues to be our motto and guiding principle.  Our staff’s daily focus is to provide every student with a safe environment and a challenging, enriching, and stimulating curriculum where everyone can achieve and thrive.  Our community responsibility, as an institution, is to produce young people of strong moral and compassionate character, capable of success in a diverse world.

At Smokey Road we recognize that parents and staff must work together toward a common goal: the success of every student.  Middle school years are a period of transition filled with the need for self-discovery and personal growth.  This task requires everyone’s active involvement.  Together we must prepare them academically, emotionally, and socially for the challenges ahead.

We recognize that social/emotional development is as essential to student success as academics during these transition years. Students are encouraged to participate in sports, clubs, and the fine arts, attend grade level team building activities, and take part in school spirit activities. There is truly something for everyone here at Smokey Road Middle.

Parents are encouraged to use our parent portal, which can be accessed via our school website to check their child's progress regularly. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many resources available to them.  The most important of these resources is our teachers.  Our teachers and staff are well prepared, enthusiastic, and ready to guide our students every step of the way.  We are very fortunate to have great facilities, including well-equipped classrooms, a well-resourced media center, computer labs, and athletic facilities for the benefit of our students and community. 

Our students’ success is based on the partnership among students, staff, and parents.  We must not falter in our ability to guide our students in building those important connections with our teachers, counselors, administrators, and staff.  Active parent participation is very important. Please contact me, our staff, or any member of our PTO for information on how you can support your school.

I look forward to working with you as we begin another great year at Smokey Road Middle.  Go Wildcats!
