Dear Smithfield Middle School Panther Family:                                                               

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I hope that all of you had a wonderful summer filled with lots of enjoyment, as well as rest and relaxation. We would like to welcome back our returning students and welcome our newcomers to the Panther family.  Our teachers and staff are ready to Engage! with students as they embark upon the amazing journey of education in the new school year ahead. As we get started, here are a few reminders that will help with making a smooth transition back into the school routine:

  • Our Open House is on August 27th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm.
  • Our Back to School event time and dates will be determined shortly.
  • Check out the Back to School Basics page on our school website for a list of every thing you need to know to prepare for Back to School  Supply list
  • 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. 

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


Remember, your child’s academic success takes teamwork and my door is always open to make sure that it happens. This is going to be a positive and engaging school year at SMS! 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.


Go Panthers!
