Principal's Message

  • At Spanaway Middle School, we are working together to develop each student's character, confidence and college readiness!  Thank you for being a part of our team!  At SMS, our students learn about the "WARRIOR WAY."  Students demonstrate this by being SAFE, RESPONSIBLE and RESPECTFUL.  

    It's the final strech of the school year!  Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to teach our students to be on time to school and class, and to complete and turn in assignments on time!  Trimester 3 is a great opportunity to work hard and demonstrate the Warrior Way by being Safe, RESPONSIBLE, and Respectful.  It's our priviledge to honor students that demonstrate the Warrior Way with a "Student of the Trimester" Breakfast that brings students, famiies and school staff together to celebrate!  

    We look forward to collaborating with our families and our community to meet the needs of SMS students!  We encourage families to stay connected with us throughout the school year.  Please email us, call us, and check our website regularly for information about upcoming events and activities.  It is our goal to communicate with our community to promote student learning!

    Warrior Pride!
