Greetings Panther Family,

I hope that you are all looking forward to the start of the 2015 -2016 school year as I am.  Our students performed wonderfully on last years SOL tests and outperformed the state average in all areas.  I look forward to seeing that upward trend continue this year.

Our teachers are ready to meet the needs of all of your students, and have many exciting lessons ready for them when they return to school on September 8th. I encourage all of the parents to continue to meet with the teachers and stay involved with your middle-schooler’s education. They need your support now more than ever as they prepare for high school and beyond.


Please be reminded:

  • Sign up for the PowerSchool Parent Portal to review your child’s grades and academic progress, if you have not already done so. More information can be found on the division website ( or in our school’s main office.
  • Sign up for the division’s Connect 5 messaging system to receive messages about things happening in our school, as well as from the division about division-wide updates, inclement weather closings, etc. (
  • Visit our school’s website for more information about school hours, attendance policy, lunch prices, etc.
  • Download the SchoolWay app and follow SMS to receive text message updates and news from the school, teachers, and clubs and sports organizations.  More information on how to sign up can be found on our website or by visiting

The mission of Isle of Wight County Schools and Smithfield Middle School is to prepare our 21st century learners for educational excellence. Our staff are more than prepared to meet this challenge as we lead students toward academic success and encourage critical thinking, problem solving skills, and positive character traits. 

Student success takes a partnership between parent, student and Smithfield Middle School, and my door is always open to make sure that success is possible.  We look forward to working with you and your child to ensure a productive and safe learning environment that promotes the highest levels of student success.
