Upcoming Events

Welcome to superior middle school

Dear Parents and Families:  

Starting  September 19th, 2018,  an automated attendance message from Superior Middle School will be informing families at 6:00 pm each evening if a student has been tardy or absent for one or more hours of the day.  In the past this message was sent in the morning and covered the first hours of the day.  However, we want you to be informed about your student’s attendance for the entire school day.   

The automated call message will go out to the first contact listed for the student and will say the following:

 “Hello, this is a message from the attendance office at, Superior Middle School, calling to inform you that your student, (First Name, Last Name) was marked absent during the following periods, (Periods Missed). Please contact the attendance office at 715-394-8748 to clear the absence, or send a signed note or medical excuse upon returning to school.  If you have already contacted the Superior Middle School you can disregard this message.  Thank you.”

Good attendance is critical for student learning and your support is appreciated.  

Thank you,

Rick Flaherty

Parents, Students and Families:

Welcome back to what we know will be a great year at Superior Middle School! At Superior Middle School it is our pleasure and responsibility to help make this a welcoming place for all students and families.  If there are things we can do to improve our service, please don’t hesitate to communicate them with me. Our district and school websites with easy access to pertinent information, will help keep you informed of what is happening at school and within the district.  Our website includes quick links to our Attendance Office, the SMS School Calendar, Community Activity Flyers (i.e., SAHA, SBA, YMCA, SSA), School Lunch, Daily Announcements, Intramural Sports and Extracurricular Activities, and so much more. We hope that you make visiting our website and Facebook page a regular part of your day. Most all of our communication between parents, students and families is electronic via our website, Facebook, PowerSchool and email. If you don’t already have a PowerSchool account set up for your student(s), you will be sent information on how to do so at the beginning of the school year. A link to our Facebook page can be found on our website www.superior.k12.wi.us.

We continue to support student learning by providing a computer to every middle school student.  This opportunity comes with responsibilities and challenges. Our staff continues to utilize technology for student learning.  Additionally, students are instructed in the appropriate use of technology at SMS. Our middle school student handbook has a section that explains our procedures and policies in regards to student use of these computers and technology.  Thank you for your support in our 1 to 1 endeavor and please call or stop in if you have questions so that we can best meet the needs of your children and our students.

Our entire learning community is responsible for making SMS the best possible place to learn.  At the middle school we emphasize the Work, Respect, Belong philosophy.  As we work to meet our job expectations as students and adults, we create the best environment for academic success.  A positive climate is created by respecting one another within the guiding and outside in the community.  As we work together and respect one another, a greater sense of belonging is cultivated.  We believe that every student and adult is important at Superior Middle School.  

Have a wonderful 2018-2019 school year!
