A Note From The Principal

Greetings Smith Families,

We have focused on Mindfulness during morning announcements this past month and this past week was Positive Self-Talk. Ask your child their positive self-talk statements! It was so encouraging to hear our students rephrase struggles and persevere. You all have some amazing kiddos that bring a smile to my face daily!

Dismissal was amazing Friday! Thank you so much for parking and getting students from the playground and not lining up too early so parents could use the parking spaces. Best dismissal in 2 years! Thank you for your support!

It's a great day to be a Saber!
