From the principal


On behalf of the staff here at Southeast Middle School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year! We are off to a great start here in Pirate Land and we are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. You can help us by guiding and supporting your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
4) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
5) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school

Middle school is a wonderful time for students to discover their talents, expand their academic knowledge and ultimately become equipped for their transition to high school. Southeast Middle School is committed to providing a safe, engaging and rigorous learning environment for our students.

Our wonderful staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for the opportunity to work with your children. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us with any concerns.

Southeast Academic Academy (Honors Program)
Members of the Southeast Middle School staff collaborated during the summer months to create a new honors organization for the student body for the 2016-17 school year, the Southeast Academic Academy.
Students will be able to apply for this honor society in the coming months. Below is the rubric that has been developed by the committee. Students must earn at least 16 points to be considered by the committee. The goal of the program is to encourage students to strive for excellence in their academics while being involved in their school and community.
All students were given a copy of the criteria and attended an assembly that explained the program. If you have any further questions please call the school at 330-654-1950.
Below is a copy of the rubric:
