Smith Elementary

Smith Mission

Smith Staff will collaborate to inspire and connect to each child by knowing every name and need to ensure success.

Notes from the office

During the winter months all students should come prepared for outdoor play with coat, gloves, scarf, etc. to be appropriately dressed for the weather. If the temperature is below 40 degrees the teacher may choose to go outside for only 15 minutes or less depending on the wind chill, etc. If the temperature is 32 degrees or below students will stay inside for recess.


The Lost and Found is filling up with water bottles, hats, gloves, and jackets. Please be sure to remind students that if they came with a jacket, they need to leave with one.

Strategies for Raising a Healthy Child

Tuesday, Feb. 16th, 6-7:30pm

5515 Ohio Drive

Frisco, TX

In this session, parents will discover strategies to foster healthy development of the whole child. Research tells us when emotional and physical needs are met, students are more successful academically and socially. Guest speaker Michelle Kinder of the Momentous Institute will discuss brain development and a concept called growth mindset, which is the understanding that personal qualities and abilities can change. Having a growth mindset leads students to take on challenges, persevere in the face of setbacks and become more effective learners.

Thank you to all of our parents that volunteered to help with Diverse Abilities Day! You helped our students learn what it is like to walk a few steps in someone else's shoes. It would not have been as successful without your help and support!
With beautiful weather expected this weekend, here are a few things to get you out of your house and into the sunshine.
