Jump Rope for Heart

The American Heart Association visited Smith with their Scare Squad to kick-off Jump Rope for Heart! Students enjoyed a 3D roller coaster ride which reminds us of how easy it can be to take care of our hearts. We hope you will join us as we work to help save lives and support the American Heart Association.

Smith has set a goal to raise $10,000. Each grade level has a goal of $1,700.

Any grade level that meets or exceeds their goal will get to enjoy a DISCO Lunch after Jump Rope for Heart!

Students who raise $150 online by March 1st at 7 am will earn a PLUSH Jax pillow on March 2nd!

Visit www.heart.org/jump or download the Jump/Hoops App (App Store for iPhone or Google Play for Android) to join our school’s team!

(psst—the monsters come to life through the app!)

Growth and Development Video

On March 9th, the boys and girls will be separated to watch the growth and development video to learn about the maturing process. Today, your child will bring home the permission slip. Please sign and return as soon as possible. If you have any specific questions, please contact our nurse, Carissa VanStory at VanStorC@friscoisd.org

Class Pictures are Tuesday!

February 27th we will take class and individual pictures. Today, your child brought home an order form for the class picture only. If your child wants a class photo, you will need to pay for that picture NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 27th. Ordering individual pictures will come after the proofs are ready.
