Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at S. Bruce Smith School. As I sit down to write this introductory message it is about a week after I was asked to become the new principal at SBS. Upon hearing the news, I did all of those things you’d expect as I tried to get acquainted with the school: reviewed the website, read through the handbook, looked at the school plan and talked at length to Ms. Yule. What was most telling, however, was the number of people who reached out to me, including parents of current students, former staff members and alumni to tell me, in many different ways, what a great school this is. It was clear to me before ever setting foot in the building that we have a school here that has meant a lot to everyone who has walked its halls. Much is made of what a challenging time junior high school can be, and there is truth to this, of course, but it is also a time of tremendous energy and possibility. I’m excited to be a part of the learning journey we are all about to embark on and I want this school to continue to be a place that kindles curiosity and excitement for all of our students.Whether you are a student, parent, staff member or community member, I want to thank you for everything you contribute (or will contribute!) to making S. Bruce Smith a place that we can all be proud to call our school. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone as we move into the 2017-2018 school year. If you have any questions about anything, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
