Principal Message

Dear Spartan Families,

The month of May in Kentucky means two things: the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Summative Assessments (KSA). Just like the majestic thoroughbreds who make the run for the roses have been training and preparing, our majestic Spartan students and teachers have been working diligently and rigorously to prepare for the KSA. Those horses show off their speed in the race, and our Spartans are going to show off their knowledge and learning in the KSA. I cannot wait for September so we can see our awesome KSA results!

As we move through May and rapidly approach the end of the 2022-23 school year, I want to send well wishes to all of our Spartans and their families. I hope our 8th graders have a great experience next door at SWHS, and I hope our 7th graders have a fantastic year in 8th grade.  The end of this school year is bittersweet for me as it’s my time to move from SWMS to SWHS. I am sad to leave this great school but also excited to lead the great school next door. I am very grateful that I will get to be the principal for the current SWMS student body for four more years.  They are all so awesome!

If there is ever anything I can do to help you, please let me know.

All the best, 


Matt Deaton
