Leadership Day is March 31st from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. We will be welcoming 50 guests to our campus including educators from three states, school board members, our superintendent, principals from several SCPS schools and community members. Our Lighthouse team has been diligently planning and working to prepare for this day! It is a great opportunity for our students’ leadership skills to shine!
John Quincy Adams states: “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader”. Our students are leaders, for they inspire us daily!!!!!
Thank you everyone for all your hard work to help support Leadership Day and Showcase our Students!

- “The Hurricane Watch”. There are so many good things going on in classrooms at SSMS and we want to give teachers the opportunity to see their peers in action (and earn pd points). Teachers will have the opportunity to open their classrooms and share their successes and instructional strategies with other teachers.
Have a Great Week!
