What's Happening

    • As part of SMS Cultural Heritage celebration, students from the World Language and ENL department created posters that highlighted this year’s theme: "Leading with Languages."​
    • Under the direction of the Community Action Committee, SMS students and staff will be working in conjunction with Assemblyman Tony D'Urso's Valentines for Vets program to make handmade valentines for hospitalized veterans on Long Island. Each year, truckloads of handmade Valentines Day cards and donated items are delivered to the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook and the Northport VA Medical Center.​ This is a great opportunity for our school to let veterans know they are thought of and appreciated.
    • South Middle is pleased to announce that Ben Mikaelsen, a well-known and award-winning Young Adult author, will be visiting on Wednesday, February 13th.  Students in each grade will be reading a different book by the author.

    • On Saturday, 1/19, South Middle School Science Research students, Arthur Z., Richard O., and Ivan X. earned fifth place at the regional Future City Competition held in Manhattan. The​ Future City competition includes more than 40,000 middle school students from across the world. Future City requires students to collaboratively solve authentic, real-world problems. This year, students had to design/plan a city that would survive a natural disaster. Our students choose a hurricane, our most pressing natural disaster on Long Island. To demonstrate their plan, students had to design a simulated city using computer aided design program and construct an actual 3-d model.  The students were led by the science research teacher, Dr. Doris Stanick who inspired and mentored these students to these incredible results. The competition invited teams from all over the New York City area.  Congratulations to the students for their excellent work and may it be the catalyst that leads these students to solve the problems of tomorrow.
