5th Grade Awards Assembly - May 31st, 8:00 am

On Wednesday, May 31st at 8am, we will host the 5th Grade Awards Ceremony. This is a formal occasion like the symphony, so nicer clothes are an expectation. We invite family members to come and celebrate all of the accomplishments our students have had throughout the year.

Please register in the link below if you plan to attend. This will help in speeding up the sign in process. Please register by Tuesday, May 30 at 12:00pm. Thank you!


End of the Year Party - June 1st

Our End of Year Party will be held at Strikz on June 1st, from 11-2. Students will bowl, eat pizza, and have a chance to play laser tag and video games.

Permission forms came home last week. If you haven't returned the signed form yet, please do so as soon as possible.

Students will be given a $10 game card. If they would like to bring additional money, that is fine; however, they will be responsible for keeping up with their money.

Fifth Grade Farewell June 2nd

June 2nd our 5th grade students will take a farewell walk through the school around 2:30. The 5th graders will walk through all of Smith with the K-4 students lining the path. The walk will end by having the students greated by parents making a "tunnel" outside of the school. If you would like to participate in this new tradition, please be outside the school of the 3-5 pick-up side by 2:30. Feel free to take your child home after the farewell walk ends. See you there!

Mrs. Maas Farewell Week

During the last wee of school we will be honoring Mrs. Mass in many ways. One way is to dress like! She doesn't know about this, but she will catch on quick when she sees the kids coming in like this:

TUESDAY – Star Wars Dress Up Day

WEDNESDAY – Students should be dressed up for the awards but may then put their hair in a bun and boys can wear a Smith shirt or get creative with a bun.

THURSDAY – Class shirt

FRIDAY – Broncos shirt or orange and blue day

June 1st-Jump Zone Party

In lieu of a final spirit night, we will have a fun event at Jump Zone where we can wish Ms. Maas good luck on her next adventure!

$5/child for unlimited video games, inflatable fun, and 2 slices of pizza.

*Note that a portion of the cost of this event is being covered by the Smith PTA in the hopes that more students can join in the fun!
