Principal Griffin's Weekly Message

SMS Families,

Happy Saturday morning!   On Monday, we celebrate Veterans Day.  We thank our veterans in Fort Mill and around the world.  We appreciate all that they have done and the sacrifices they have made for our freedom and safety.  We especially want to thank two of our staff members who have proudly served in the military.  Mr. John Barrow and Mr. Rodney Nichols have made us all proud.  Thank you for your service!

Understanding our tweens and teens- 

“Adolescents are in the midst of acquiring incredible new skills sets, especially when it comes to social behavior and abstract thought. However, they are not good at using them yet, so they must experiment — and sometimes they use their parents as guinea pigs. Many kids this age view conflict as a type of self-expression and may have trouble focusing on an abstract idea or understanding another's point of view.”

This quote came from the following link.  Please see this link for more information -  https://www.livescience.com/13850-10-facts-parent-teen-brain.html

Lost and Found- Please place your child’s name on garments and lunch boxes.  Many of these are left everywhere around our school.  With cold weather here, the lost and found will grow rapidly. Come in and check it out if your child has lost something. 

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend!

Keith Griffin, Principal
