Dear Griffith Middle School Families,
My name is Delincia Smith, and I am excited, honored and delighted to serve as the new principal of Griffith Middle School (GMS). It is rewarding to be a part of a school with a proud tradition of providing its students with a high quality of educational opportunities and experiences. I will work diligently to continue this legacy of success, and I look forward to working with you to help each student meet their academic goals.
We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit our website and learn more about us and the educational opportunities available to every GMS student. All of us are eager and excited to begin a new school year with our new 1:1 technology, professional development opportunities, Project Lead the Way courses, and the goals in our strategic plan. We will continue to offer and expand our Robotics, Computer Sciences courses, curricular and extracurricular activities, and numerous elective opportunities.
Our team of educators is highly qualified and dedicated to preparing every student for a successful career in high school and beyond including a rigorous and relevant curriculum that helps students build relationships and make real-world connections. We are committed to meeting the daily challenges of increasing student achievement, while putting a focus on continuous improvement. Rest assured, GMS is a place where teachers, parents, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
Please feel free to communicate with us about your child's academic needs. We welcome positive communication through email, phone, or a parent-teacher conference. Likewise, we will keep you updated with the latest information throughout the year through our school website, SwiftK, Twitter, and Remind Texting.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors--students, teachers, parents, and community members-- feels welcome and excited to be here. A positive attitude will enable us as a team to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a fun, positive, and nurturing environment. I look forward to continuing to build a community that creates an open and welcoming atmosphere for everyone.
My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you to help each student at Griffith Middle School meet their goals and have a successful school year!
Yours in Education,
Griffith Middle School Principal
