Message from the Principal


Hello SMS!  

I am very excited to be a part of Surgoinsville Middle School, and I am looking forward to a promising school year as I meet and work with your children.  Our teachers and support staff are committed to setting high expectations for all students to grow and learn as we provide the best possible education in a positive, safe learning environment.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure the children at SMS are celebrated and supported.  

Before joining SMS, I have been a high school English teacher at Cherokee High School and an assistant principal at Rogersville Middle School.  As a teacher and administrator, I desire students to problem-solve, develop strong critical thinking, and hone their knowledge while becoming creative, independent thinkers who demonstrate care and concern for others, our community, and our world. 

Communication between school and home is essential to our school's success, thank you for visiting our website, and we hope this site enhances our communication with our parents and community.  Our school's Facebook page is also a great place to keep up with the happenings at SMS.  Please feel free to contact me by email at or call our school office if you have any questions or have any ideas to share.  

We are looking forward to a great school year!  

With Eagle Pride,

Krista Mann
