Smith Family Newsletter

We believe in the power of school and family partnerships.

Message from Dr. Rivera

I cannot believe we only have three more weeks of school! We have worked hard, played hard, and now we will celebrate our achievements together. See below for information about the award ceremonies to recognize our kids' accomplishments and the growth they have made this year.

This month, we also formally thank our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8th through 12th. I am so grateful to work with the most dedicated and hardworking group of people I have ever known. I wish everyone could see how much these teachers care about our kids. Please join us in recognizing and spoiling our teachers and paraprofessionals next week!

Finally, if I do not see you at the upcoming events, I want to take this time to thank you for everything you have done to support our kids and staff this year. We may not always see eye, but know that we love your kids as our own and want the best for them! I hope you and your family have a fun and safe summer!

If you have any questions or feedback, contact me at, visit our website, and follow us on Twitter @CedricSmithElem and on Facebook.
