New Social Work Position
I am pleased to announce that Michaella Costa will be joining the Smithfield team, starting on Monday, April 29th. Although a schedule is still being developed, please welcome Michaella to our team next week. Michaella is a positive, energetic person who demonstrates a real passion for helping students. She will be a great addition to our already strong team.
Our students did an amazing job taking the RICAS ELA assessment earlier this month. We look forward to continuing that momentum for the NGSA, scheduled for May 8th and 9th for Grade 5 students only. RICAS Math will take place the following week- on May 14th and May 15th. Let's keep that Growth mindset attitude going!
Safe Havens Follow Up
A special thank you to our staff for a productive visit with Stephanie Prater from Safe Havens. She spoke highly of our school and staff. More specific and detailed feedback will be coming, both on a school and district level. In the interim, please be reminded that classroom doors should be closed and locked during instruction. Also, please always demonstrate active supervision during recess. This will ensure that our already safe school is consistent with universal best practices.
