We are so excited to finally have you back at school! This year our theme is "Tiger University - Hear us ROAR!" Each classroom has adopted a college to learn about throughout the year in order to create awareness for our students of future career fields and continuing their education after high school.
Parents may purchase the new Tiger University spirit t-shirt for their students. Youth sizes are $12 and adult sizes are $14. Every Tuesday will be our school spirit shirt day called "Tiger Tuesday." In addition, students are encouraged to wear a college or future career school t-shirt on Fridays along with the staff for "Future Fridays."
It's going to be a fabulous year of learning! Please know that the staff of SME feels honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work with you and your children this year. We hope you will contact us with any concerns you may have throughout the school year so that we can work together for the best possible solutions.
We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college. Through Tiger University this year we are building a culture of universal achievement by believing that our students can be proficient or advanced in reading, writing, and math. As a staff, we will collaborate and work together to make this belief a reality. During collaboration we will align our standards as a team, assess the standards and manage the data. This will allow us to provide meaningful interventions to our students to help them succeed. Our learning expectations are high and we accept no excuses!
