Letter from the Principal

Dear Smithfield Families,

Welcome March! It is refreshing to see the sun and the warmer weather moving in. I am hopeful it is a sign of good things to come! This month we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday with Read Across America activities from March 1st - 5th. Don't forget Daylight Savings on March 14th as we move our clocks forward one hour. Check out the new newsletter from our counselors and other resources below - we hope you find them helpful!
