January 2024
Dear SMBSD Staff and Families,
I want to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to all of you for your unwavering dedication and hard work throughout the last year. As we reflect on the past months, it is clear that our collective efforts are making a positive impact on the lives of our students and the community as a whole.
The winter break - whether it was the weeks the schools were closed or the holidays that our District office and Maintenance & Operations staff received - provided an opportunity for everyone to rest, recharge, and spend quality time with loved ones. I hope that the time off brought you joy and rejuvenation.
Looking ahead to 2024, I am filled with optimism and excitement for the possibilities that lie ahead. Together, we will continue to cultivate a nurturing, inclusive and enriching educational environment that inspires our students to pursue their passions and develop the skills to reach their maximum potential.
On behalf of the entire SMBSD family, I extend my warmest wishes for a prosperous new year. 
Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment. We look forward to reconnecting in the new year, re-energized and ready to embrace the opportunities that await us.
Most Sincerely,
Darren McDuffie
