Principal's Message

Welcome to the Smith School website. The staff at Smith School would like your child to have a successful year filled with the excitement of learning and growing in an academically stimulating environment. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional efforts, will ensure success for your child.

 

We are proud of our staff and students and invite you to become involved in the learning process while attending Smith School. Please visit our classrooms, school office, library, computer lab, and playground. There is a spirit of cooperation and progress at our school we want to share with you.

 

The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to their academic level. We believe every child can achieve academic success. To this end, every child will be provided with high quality instructional experiences that recognize, support, and maintain high expectations for all students. We have four goals upon which we focus our efforts for the school year. These goals provide a focus for our School Improvement Program team, our staff development efforts, and resource allocation. The goals are:

 

  1.  Increase the impact of instruction on the learning of all Smith students through a focus on consistent use of current effective instructional practices as well as staff development on additional best practices in areas of need in ELA and Math.
  2.  Support individual student learning through the development and implementation of common and consistent intervention in all core subject areas and at all grade levels across the school.
  3. To improve the climate and culture at Smith School, all students will treat each other with respect, take responsibility for their learning and strive for a safe school with a positive climate.
  4. Technology will be used as a tool and integrated into the teachers’ instructional practices used to support students’ learning.

 

I encourage you to be involved both with the educational process at Smith as well as the activities of our PTA. Our PTA provides excellent support and enhances the work we do with our students. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you in support of achieving our school mission and vision.

 

 

Best Regards,
