The Superstar Special

Newsletter for the C.L. Smith Elementary Superstars

August-September 2015

From the Principal: Welcome to a New Year!

Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year! The first week of school was exciting and the students are showing they are geared up and ready to learn! The teachers have been working hard to prepare themselves and their classrooms for a year of outstanding lessons and opportunities for our Superstars. So it all adds up to the start of a fantastic year!

Just a few reminders for the new school year:

  • Students should not be on campus before 9:15 on Mondays and 8:15 Tuesdays-Friday
  • All students should wait in front of the office before school and will be escorted to the playground by the teacher on duty at 8:15 (9:15 on Mondays).
  • If your student arrives after the 8:25 bell, he/she needs to stop by the office for a tardy slip before going to class.
  • Remember to not leave your car unattended in the loading zone in front of the school.

Thank you for joining us a Back To School Night!

  • It was wonderful to see everyone here to support their students!

Please don't hesitate to contact us should you ever have any issues or concerns. We are all here to support the success of every Superstar student on campus!
