New PTA Website!

Smith PTA has a new website at www.smithpta.net Go check it out! It will let you know about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, programs, and so much more! There is also a link to our school directory! But, you will need a password to get into the directory. The password is "Soaring" and it is case sensitive. If you have any questions, you can email the PTA at noelasmithpta@gmail.com

Counselor Corner

February guidance lessons will be about respecting differences. We must teach our students that different does not equal bad. For example, another student may bring a lunch to school that looks very different from your lunch. If you respect differences you could ask about it and be open to learning. Sometimes students are quick to say “What is that?...it looks weird.” We celebrated friendship week and it was so much fun!
