Welcome to Salem Church Middle School (SMS) and 2020-21 school year! Greetings and salutations on behalf of our entire, talented faculty. I couldn’t be more delighted to serve over 900 of the best and brightest students in Chesterfield, at a school steeped in rich history and a reputation for community pride. This year, we will continue building on all of the practices that bring our community such pride, while enhancing aspects of our instructional program in order to elevate us to the next level. At Salem, we have a penchant for seeing our students thrive both academically and socially. Therefore, we are going on a mission!

Furthermore, we take our responsibility to inspire and educate as seriously as we do our obligation to nurture, even in a virtual learning environment. Despite our plans for a non-traditional start, here is to an amazing new school year!
