Dr. Stennett's Letter to SAMS Families
Good Morning SAMS Families,  

I wanted to take just a moment to let all of you know how proud we are at the middle school of all of you. This has been a tough adjustment for all of us and we are taking it one day at a time. What I am seeing is wonderful children and parents working together through tough times, united and helping each other. I see a staff wanting children to be safe and happy. No matter the outcome, I could not be more impressed with our community.
