Dear Kirby-Smith Family,
    Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!  That is our theme for this 2017-18 school year.  This theme means we will continue to our tradition of working together to accomplish our goals.  Congratulations on making our 11th consecutive “A” school grade as well as increased our total points on the FSA from the previous year!  For those new to Kirby-Smith Midle School, I’d like to welcome you to the amazing tradition of being a Comet because “Once a Comet, Always a Comet”!
    Our faculty and staff are excited to help you reach your academic, social, and emotional goals.  Above all, we want you to improve from year-to-year which means that you will work hard to make daily strides forward no matter from where you start.
    We have worked hard to improve our course offerings from additional Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) classes to enhance the learning experiences of our core content course.  Hopefully, you will find these adjustments to be beneficial to you and your education.  Never forget that the ultimate indicator of your success is the time and attention that YOU pay to your education.  Nothing will ever replace the passion that you bring to your time here at Kirby-Smith!
    Let me or any of the adults who work here know what we can do to help you reach your goals.  Silence is often the concealer of dreams!
    Have an amazing 2017-18 school year!
    Kenya Griffin
