principal's message

Hello Mustangs,

As we have ended the 2nd quarter, I want to express my gratitude for the incredible journey we've shared this school year. Our students have shown remarkable dedication and resilience; I am immensely proud of their achievements. Thank you for your unwavering support, as your involvement is crucial to our students' success. I look forward to continued collaboration as we enter the next quarter because your insights are invaluable. Together, we can ensure our students have an environment where they can thrive. Enjoy your weekend, and as always, please let us know if you have any questions, feedback, or concerns.

Second Semester Schedules

We have encouraged students to check their StudentView account over the weekend to see if they have access to their second semester schedule. Our hope is that it will be available today, but if not, it should be available by Monday morning. If your student is unable to check, then we have a plan in place for them on Monday morning.  



The SCMS Spring Track season is almost upon us. We will be hosting a Parent/Student Information meeting on Tuesday February 6th at South County MS at 6:00pm. Please use door 1 and you will be directed to our Lecture Hall.
