• In honor of our military children, Rodney Thompson Middle School invites reserve and active duty military parents/guardians to a special breakfast on Thursday, April 14th at 9:30 a.m. We would love for you to join us and your students! RSVP is required. Please respond to Mrs. Smithey in the counseling center by April 6.



    Welcome to Rodney Thompson Middle School!

    We are here to help make your transition to our school as easy and comfortable as possible.

    We have a strong commitment to supporting our military-connected students. We have programs throughout the year specifically for recognizing the sacrifices and contributions you make. We have a wonderful Veteran’s Day program. You will receive information about this year’s event and how you can participate and be recognized. In April, we celebrate the Month of the Military Child with a Hall of Heroes and we “Purple Up” on the national recognition day. Additionally, if you and your child(ren) are experiencing a deployment, please let us know.   We will help support these students and may offer a deployment group if there is a need. We are fortunate to be able to work in conjunction with our military school liaison for our military connected students. The Military School Liaison Officer from Quantico can be accessed through the link School Liaison Program. They are a great resource in helping us support our military kids!

    Diana Smithey is the school-based military student support point of contact for Thompson Middle and Carrie Neeley is the school division point of contact.

    Please let us know if there is anything you need. You can reach Mrs. Smithey through email at: smitheydk@staffordschools.net or by phone at 540-658-6420.
