Our Fundraiser is Happening Now!

Packets went home today, 10/6, for our school fundraiser. This fundraiser will go to help pay for things such as field trips, playground equipment, supplies and resources for the students, and putting more technology into our classrooms.

Please support us as we try to improve your child's educational experience. The fundraiser will end on October 20th. Online orders are also accepted. Click on this story for more information. Thank you for your help!

Family Survey

In order to better serve our staff, students, and families, Smith Elementary has partnered with Panorama Education to administer surveys to all staff, families, and students in third, fourth, and fifth grade.

Surveys were sent to all parent emails we have on file. If you did not get a survey emailed, please click on the link in this post and also check your Spam folder. Please complete the survey by October 27th. Thank you!

Cafeteria Lunch Monitors Needed

Would you like to spend lunch time with the best kids ever?! If so, please apply to be a lunch monitor. The lunch hours are 10:15 to 1:35. Contact Ms. Pitts or Ms. Rivera if you would like more information. We would love you to join our team!

Attendance Matters - Every Student, Every Day

Attendance matters to your child's success! Make sure your child is at school every day. Did you know that missing just 2 days of school a month means a child misses 10% of the school year? Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade. Absenteeism and its ill effects start early. Learning happens everyday! You must be present to learn!
