Field Day Reminders
Field Day for 5th graders will be held at Lebanon Trail High School.
Make sure your child...Wears his or her class shirt, athletic shorts or pants(following dress code), tennis shoes, and sunscreen. Your child can also wear a hat. We will have lunch at LTHS, so your child will need to bring a fully disposable sack lunch (no lunch boxes) unless he or she ordered a sack lunch from the Cafe order form which is on the permission form that came home last week. If you aren't sure if you ordered a lunch, check with your child's homeroom teacher.
5th Grade Awards Assembly
On Wednesday, May 29th 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. Students should bring regular clothes to change into for the Strikz party.
5th Grade Farewell Walk
On May 30th 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 by 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!
