SSMS is STORMing!

Hello Hurricanes!!!! This Week’s  “STORM TALK” features SSMS being a Golden Model School two years in a row!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

SSMS was recognized by the school board meeting this week as a Gold-Level PBIS Model School for the 2nd year in a row! This is the highest recognition we can receive through PBIS! To clarify the difference between each level:
Bronze-Level Schools report a comprehensive system of support at Tier 1. Critical elements of Tier 1 PBS:MTSS are implemented with fidelity, and data are utilized within a problem-solving framework in order to improve the outcomes of students. Bronze-Level schools have de…veloped innovative, creative, and functional ways of implementing Tier 1 PBS:MTSS that set them apart from other schools.
Silver-Level Schools report all of the characteristics of Bronze-Level schools and implement with higher levels of fidelity. Visibility, political support, parent involvement, and funding strategies are in place to ensure continued success with their MTSS implementation efforts for behavior. Silver-Level schools “drill down” into their data to ensure that their Tier 1 system is effective for all groups of students, and have taken steps to build systems of support for behavior at Tier 2.
Gold-Level Schools report all of the characteristics of Bronze- and Silver-Level schools, implement with the highest levels of fidelity, and have developed systems of support at Tiers 2 and 3. Gold-Level schools exceed their peers in both the quality and depth of implementation across all three tiers of support. Practices that are consistent with positive behavior support are evident in decision making, and steps are taken to ensure PBS:MTSS systems are supported. Positive outcomes for students are evident at Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 levels of behavior support.
Thanks to all the Hurricanes that work so hard to support our students every day!

CONTINUE TO STORM, Hurricanes!

Why SSMS?

Hello Hurricanes!!!! This Week’s  “STORM TALK” features Why SSMS?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why SSMS? Well…because Great Leaders Serve! Our students and staff are continuously showcasing their various leadership traits. This past week, our SSMS student LEADers explained, “Why SSMS?” to the community and future SSMS Hurricanes at Casselberry’s Funtoberfest! Thanks, Mr. Miles, for LEADing them this past Saturday! Our JROTC also STORMed at their carwash this past Saturday! Community involvement and giving back is a part of what JROTC does regularly and Chief Jackson LEADs them through this journey. SSMS also welcomed approximately 700 students from Casselberry Elementary for a storybook character parade! What better way to give back than to welcome our future Hurricanes to SSMS! So, Why SSMS? I ask you, WHY NOT?
