Principal's Corner

Principal Byrd

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. I am humbled and honored to work with such an amazing team of educators and students. I have been given the opportunity to serve as principal of Sanders Middle School for five years, and I’ve never been as excited as I am to serve this year. Sanders is a great school with a strong connection to the community. As the learning hub of the community, Sanders has an amazing and bright future ahead.

At Sanders we are focused on meeting the individual needs of our students. This is accomplished through individualized instruction, relevant, real world application and exposure, and a caring school community. Each is a key component of the instructional practices in both our Montessori and Scholarly (traditional) programs of learning.

As stakeholders, we are grateful to have your support and value you as members of our school community. We welcome parental involvement and volunteerism. This year’s theme at Sanders is K.E.Y. is Success at SMS! Daily each of our students is being given the tools they need to refine their K.E.Y. to opening their door of opportunity. Below is a copy of our student pledge that we recite each day to show our commitment to our quest for success.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Continue to believe in us, grow with us, and support us as we make a difference in our community one child at a time.
