Dear Smith Families,

What a wonderful second week of school we have had! I enjoyed seeing so many of our families at Bahama Buck’s for our first spirit night this year. Thank you for your support! I am trying a new format for our newsletter as our current vehicle allows only 3 attachments. I will be listening to your feedback over the next couple of weeks. Don’t forget that Monday is a holiday! We will see all of you back here on Tuesday, September 8th.
