The SSMS 8th Grade Dance was a huge success! A special thanks to all the teachers who worked tirelessly to pull off such a special night! Congratulations to all of our 8th Grade students as they continue on their journey! Our Hurricanes have learned to LEAD and STORM because of the guidance they have received from their various teachers throughout their journey! This is also a moment to reflect and celebrate all of the impact you have had on the lives of your students to get them to this point. It could not have been done without YOU and the numerous relationships you have built along the way!  #bestever #leaders #continuetoSTORM #epic #nightattheoscars #redcarpet

CONTINUE TO STORM, Hurricanes!

As part of The Leader In Me process, schools are re-evaluated every two years to renew Lighthouse status.  The recertification process  begins with a Measurable Results Survey.
The Measurable Results Assessment is a rigorously developed tool used to annually collect, analyze, and report student-, staff-, and school-level outcomes related to the focus on improving leadership, culture, and academics. It can be used to help a school identify its strengths and weaknesses, develop goal-centered improvement plans, and to monitor progress toward school improvement.
The survey will be given to staff members, students and families.  Please take a few minutes and complete the survey at the link provided below so our Lighthouse team can continue planning for next year!

Hello Hurricanes!!!! This Week’s  STORM TALK” features Community Outreach and Field Day!

We are well on our way to making the SSMS Community Outreach and Field Day for May 5th a success! This fun-filled day will consist of multiple service projects, a variety of fun, physical, activities for our students, and a color run! To make this experience memorable, we need your support! Please consider donating to the can drive, which is one of our community outreach activities. Our goal is 3000 cans and donations will go to the Casselberry Care Cabin. We could also use your support by attending Spirit Night at the Casselberry Chipotle on Wednesday, April 19th, from 5:00-9:00. Bring the flyer, show it on your phone, or simply mention that you are supporting South Seminole Middle. Last, we are fundraising so that every student at SSMS can receive an event t-shirt to wear as a memento of this great day….Any amount is appreciated! Remember to register for your class service project if you haven’t already done so. #togethertheSTORMisstonger
