Superintendent's Message

Mr. Humble reflects on the 2023-2024 school year, noting the success of SMS and Emerson Primary schools as they earned special awards. 

Hello Yellow Jackets!
It’s hard to believe we are almost done with the school year! 

In our May 2023 Jacket Journal, we celebrated a number of student and school accomplishments! 

Great things are happening at SMS–the Builders Club is putting their club motto into action as they enhance leadership capabilities through their service projects.

We’re incredibly proud to celebrate awards earned by SMS and Emerson Primary. SMS received the Momentum Award from the Ohio Department of Education & Workforce, and Emerson was named a Hall of Fame School by the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators. Both exemplify the great things happening throughout Sidney City Schools. 

A thought to leave you with: When schools and families work together toward their common goal of helping all children to be successful, it is much more likely to happen. We appreciate your ongoing support of our teachers, staff, schools, and district.

In Jacket Pride,

Bob Humble, Superintendent

Mr. Bob Humble reflects on the 2022-2023 school year in his July 2023 Superintendent's Message. 

Hello Yellow Jackets!
We’re officially in summer mode! As I reflect, I can see this past school year was a good one.

Our state-qualifying athletes gave us a great reason to celebrate our Jacket Pride of individuals Josie Davis (wrestling), Keaton Fischer (bowling), Garrett Guinther (track), and Jarrett Payne (swimming). We saw outstanding academic achievement in Tatum Werntz being named one of 18 state winners of the American Legion Americanism & Government Test, which took her on an amazing trip to Washington, D.C. Our academia team took back the Shelby County title again. We saw outstanding achievement by students competing in Business Professionals of America. BPA members who placed in State: Brooklyn Koester, Grace Work-Steenrod, Ivan Spencer, and Parker Slaven. BPA members who placed in State and qualified for Nationals: Thomas Sibert, Ethan Weldy, Joshua Wise, and Danny Orr. Gilbert Quiantance qualified for nationals only.

Our music department saw its success in a very large musical that included students as young as 3rd grade! The concerts both in the winter and spring were some of the best I have heard, and the contest results in all areas were positive.

An expansion of Key Club into middle school with the addition of Builder’s Club allowed more students to serve in our community. These are just a few of the outstanding things that happened this school year.

Our administrative team and teachers will spend the summer preparing to make the 2023-2024 school year even better. Thank you to our families for their continued support.

Be sure to check out our Back-to-School Hub to get ready for the upcoming school year! 

In Jacket Pride,

Bob Humble, Superintendent
