Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Hello Families,

Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, so don't forget to set your clocks back an hour. We've had a staggering amount of tardies lately, so I hope the time change allows our students to get to campus a little earlier. Just as a reminder, our doors open at 7:05 and the tardy bell rings at 7:35.

Also, our campus fundraiser is still active and going until November 12th. We could really use the help in raising funds for our campus!

Another reminder about this week is that we will be taking Fall pictures. Monday will be pictures for virtual students only (register using the link in the calendar for a time slot) and Friday will be for all in-person students. All students will need to be in regular dress code attire.

Have a great week!

Time Capsule Project for the Smith Yearbook

This school year has definitely been one of a kind! There are some ups and downs and pros and cons- but we want your help to add personal touches to this year’s yearbook.

We are asking that students submit works of art to add to the yearbook to help capture memories of 2020. This art can be drawings, memes, graphics designs, or poems. We will choose some of these to use in the 2020-2021 yearbook.

  1. Designs must be appropriate. Negative comments or wording will not be accepted.

  2. Be creative!

  3. Complete project using plain drawing paper (not bigger than 8.5 x 11)

  4. Write your name and grade on the back of the project. If submitting via email make sure to add your name and grade level in the body of the email.

  5. Submit your physical project to Mrs. Clark (Rm 59). You can also scan/ take a picture of your project and email to Mrs. Clark at . PLEASE MAKE SURE PHOTOS AND SCANS are clear, not blurry, and capture all of your work.

  6. Deadline is December 14, 2020

Deadline is December 14, 2020. Make sure to submit to Mrs. Clark as soon as possible.
