• A Message from Mrs. Waits 

    As the new principal at Spring Station Middle School, and former principal in WCS, I know from personal experience that Spring Station is a very special learning community! I am so excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year, and I look forward to meeting and working with the students and families of SSMS. 

    Our staff consists of an amazing group of educators and student support staff that work together each day to ensure the safety and academic success of our students. Each day, we will seek to inspire our students to reach their greatest potential. 

    Here at SSMS, we not only focus on academics but also on character development as we desire to challenge our students to:

    S – Show respect every day to self and others.

    A – Act responsibly; it is the right thing to do.

    T – Take pride in the work you produce and how you present yourself.

    S -  Safe environment for all!

    SSMS has a long, outstanding history of excellence in education.  Our teachers and staff pride themselves in providing a student centered learning environment which includes a rigorous curriculum and prepares our students for the next level of learning. 

    I am honored to serve as principal of Spring Station Middle School where we strive to partner with our parents and families to achieve overall student, school, and community success.  If I can be of assistance or answer any questions, please feel free to contact me through the school office at 615-472-5080.

    Spring Station Middle School, Principal
