Welcome to the 2019-20120 School Year  

     I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of my 7th grade students, parents, guardians and friends. I appreciate your support. Our Sumter County Middle School Theme is: We "Work to Excel" at SCMS! !! I truly believe in our theme - we are all a part of a village and it takes all of us working together to make a difference. Your help is very much needed throughout the year. I have an open door policy and hope that you will feel free to visit the class at any time. If there are any concerns or questions, feel free to contact me. I welcome parental involvement anytime.

Welcome Back To School  


Welcome back to school and to the7th grade!  I am looking forward to a wonderful year with the students.  I trust that we will have a fabulous year exploring the various topics and subject materials in Life Science.
