We need you to Volunteer for the End of the Year Party

Hello Parents,

We are looking for volunteers for the end of the year party at Strikz. As you know, the party is May 31st from 11 AM to 2 PM. Volunteers are needed to help keep the children moving through the different activities (i.e. bowling, laser tag, games, and lunch). We have split the time in two (1st and 2nd shift). Volunteers will report directly to Strikz.

Please see the below Sign Up Genius link to volunteer.


Thank you!

5th Grade Awards Assembly

On Wednesday, May 30th 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 29 at 12:00pm. Thank you!

End of the Year Party - Strikz

Our End of Year Party will be held at Strikz on May 31st, from 11-2. Students will bowl, have a chance to play laser tag and video games. A pizza lunch will be provided.

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

Students will receive a $10 card to play video games. If your child would like to bring extra money, please understand that your child must keep up with it themselves. We will not be responsible for any losses.

Farewell Walk for 5th Grade

June 1st our 5th grade students will take a traditional farewell walk through the school beginning at 2:30. They'll walk through all of Smith as the K-4 students cheer them on. The walk will end as the students exit the 3rd-5th dismissal doors and are greeted parents making a "tunnel" outside of the school. If you would like to participate in this tradition, please be outside the school on the 3-5 pick-up side by 2:30. You can take pictures and are free to take your child home after the farewell walk. Please do not park in the pick up loop. See you there!
