Springfield Middle School Welcomes our Website Visitors!

Meeting the educational needs of young adolescents requires special curricula that feature content that connects with the everyday lives of students as well as activities that actively involve them in the learning process. SMS academic standards are high. Although the Ohio Department of Education's rating system has recently changed, it is important to reflect that scores demonstrate that SMS students are well prepared to succeed both today and tomorrow!

The entire SMS family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - takes pride in consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. Opportunities to enrich student learning, including the availability of Honors courses, foreign language offerings, problem-based learning approaches all challenge today’s learners to develop and refine the critical thinking skills they will need to become tomorrow’s leaders.  Classes are offered to students on a trimester schedule.  The school mascot is the Blue Devil.

Our high academics are complimented by equally high expectations for behavior and character!  To challenge students to realize their full potential, we offer a full range of creative, athletic and extracurricular programs, including:

Chess Club Basketball Band
Robotic Lego League Cheerleading Choir
Math Counts Cross Country Newspaper-Devils’ Dispatch
Quiz Bowl 7th Football; 8th Football Power of the Pen
Science Olympiad Track Yearbook

Springfield Middle School Students Qualify for Lucas Country Spelling Bee
Offering students the opportunity to compete in programs that showcase both their academic and athletic skills is an important aspect of growth. That is why on January 9th, over 30 Springfield Middle School students participated in the annual building-level Spelling Bee!
After a lot of practice and preparation, students first participated through class competitions and the top six who won their respective competitions qualified by spelling such words as chilblains, sagacity, gondolier, and prevaricate.

Springfield Middle School’s six qualifiers will move on to the next level of competition, the Educational Services Center of Lake Erie Spelling Bee which will held at the Maumee Indoor Theater on February 19, 2019. Join us in congratulating our 7th Grader students David F, Jazmine F, and Ryan L and 8th Grade students Nikevan B, Lauren G, and Eliza S.

We know that they are ready, and wish David, Jazmine, Ryan, Nikevan, Lauren, and Eliza Smith luck as they prepare - we’re hopeful, too, that one or more qualifies to participate in the Blade Championship Tournament that has been scheduled for March, 2019.

The SMS Bee is coordinated through our English Language Arts Department, and was facilitated by SMS English teachers Mrs. Mallory Holliday and Mr. Tom Mockensturm. We can’t wait to share the buzzzzzzzz (couldn’t resist!)

Two Things
If you ask most students, "What happened today at school," we're told the most frequent response heard is "Nothing!" We all know that isn't the case!
To assist families in staying well aware of SMS happenings, we encourage all to take advantage of the district's app, use the website to access information including SMS announcements, read the weekly email updates from the district (if you're not receiving, please email kristinawhite@springfield-schools.org) and read this weekly column in the Journal!!
This week, we thought you might appreciate learning about two things that are upcoming Although both of these items are a bit in the future, please know that:
  • The SHS 8th Grade Open House is 2/6 from 6:30-8 pm at the high school 
  • BGSU is offering an opportunity for artists to participate in an affordable multiple week program. Click here for information. 
 Let us know what you need to know and how we can make sure that you're accessing all the information that we make available.
