Fundraiser is Due!

Thank you to everyone that has already participated in a HUGE way for our School Fundraiser. The kids are excited and have been celebrating their participation daily here at school. Just a reminder - sales can be online or through the catalog that was brought home by your child.

So what is this "House" thing?

Have you heard your child talk about their "House?" At Smith we have 4 houses: Parakaleo (green), Katothrono (blue), Pnuestos (purple), and Arete (black). By grouping our students into houses, we are able to build strong relationships and make new friends that we may not have, otherwise, made. House meetings take place on Fridays when there is not a Bulldog Boogie scheduled. Teachers will remind students to wear their House shirt on these Fridays. Order forms are due September 27th.

Birthday coming soon?

You can add your child's name on the marquee celebrating their birthday. The cost is $15 and can be placed in an envelope and sent to the office. This money goes back directly to the students helping to fund activities such as field trips, classroom supplies, readers, etc.
