Welcome to SHMS!
Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians:
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners! I am proud of our Generals and all they accomplished.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us - the school and the community - must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone's responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Spring Hill Middle and member of the PTSA. We will also have an Open House on August 19th from 4:00-7:00 p.m. so you can meet your student’s teachers. We have transitioned into a new Student Management System and each parent will be assigned a new login for Parent Portal. This year we will also host a parent coffee time every third Monday of the month. This will be a time to share with parents and stakeholders. The place will be in the school’s library and the time will be at 8:00 am. All parents are invited to come. The first coffee meeting will be August 18th .
We have sent home several forms that need your attention. Please read each and fill out the necessary information. It is important we get this information back on Tuesday, August 5th. There are also fees that are due to assure our students get the necessary supplies they need. It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you through emails, phone messages and will appear on our school web page. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to call your child's teacher or me.
Again, I want to thank each of you for what you have done for our school and community. I believe even better things are ahead for our school and community. I look forward to another great year.

Parent Portal News
In the process of transitioning to our new student data system, INOW, the parent contact information did not transfer. Therefore, we are entering this information manually and it has greatly delayed our launch date. We recognize the inconvenience to you as a parent in being able to view grades, etc. We’re getting close to finalizing the process and you’ll be hearing from us over the next few weeks regarding your login and password.
The SHMS library will be hosting its first book fair of the year next week (Aug. 18-22). Students will visit the fair with their reading teachers. Parents and students are welcome to shop during Open House (Aug. 19). Parents are also invited to eat lunch with their child on Wednesday, Aug. 20, and shop the fair. Parents who plan to attend this event, must return the invitation that will be sent home through reading teachers.
SHMS yearbooks are now on sale. The early-bird special ($35) will run from now until the end of September. Regular price is $45 and that will be open from October 1 until Dec. 31. Go to Jostensyearbooks.com to reserve yours today.
