PTSO believes in the value of recognizing our teachers and staff  for their hard work. We have different celebration activities and always are looking for help.

In addition to our Annual Donation Drive, PTSO organizes spirit nights, Clothing Drives, Box Tops, Spirit Gear and Business Partner Opportunities.

SMS recognizes and celebrates academic excellence, effective employment skills, and positive behavior. Renaissance creates a culture that honors high academic performance and excellent behavior and encourages all students to strive for the recognition. Students earn a variety of recognition opportunities each nine-week grading period, depending on the criteria they meet. Students earn Renaissance recognition with a grade point average of 3.5 or above. We also recognize those students who show improvement of .5gpa over the previous marking period.
