Mr. Jorge Olmos
Hello Smithfield Middle School community.
Welcome to the Spanish website. I hope we have a fantastic year full of Spanish.
My name is Jorge Olmos and I will be the Spanish teacher this year. I am from Colombia and I have been an ESL/Spanish teacher for ten years in Colombia and USA. I got a bachelor degree in Modern Languages and a Master of Arts in Linguistics and TESOL. My goal as a world language teacher is to open a door to students, so they can get a gist about a foreign language and/or culture.

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
