Mr. Chase Smith is excited to begin another year of Academic Team! If your child enjoys trivia or jeopardy like competition, then look no further than the SMS Academic Team. Using a quick recall (buzz-in) format we compete against other middle schools in Lexington and across central Kentucky. In light of COVID-19, we aren’t completely sure how our matches will look just yet, but we will begin practices very soon. Our team has had great success in the past. Last year, our 6th-grade team placed 3rd in the 6th-grade showcase. Our varsity team earned 2nd place overall in the district and 5th overall in regional competition. If your child is interested in the academic team, please fill out the google form. Mr. Smith is looking to have the very first academic team meeting the week of October 12-16. Once you fill out the sign-up google form Mr. Smith will send out a zoom link to parents with a date and time for our first meeting! Looking forward to having many students sign-up!
