Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back to another great school year at Smith Road Elementary! Our custodians, teachers and office staff have been working hard to prepare the school for everyone. The first day of school will be Tuesday, September 8th. We are all very eager to meet our new students and can’t wait to kick off a great school year!
Please be sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, September 10th. We will be holding our third annual Back to School BBQ from 5:30-6:30 at Smith Road Elementary. This year, we will be adding several new events for students and families to enjoy (more details will be coming home soon). Our Open House/Curriculum Night(s)will be September 16th for Kindergarten-Second grade and September 17th for grades 3 and 4.
We have updated some of our technology over the summer and I am happy to announce that both Kindergarten and first grade will now have IPads in all classrooms. This technology will enable teachers to continue to individualize their instruction to support students in a fun and challenging way. We have also installed a large screen and projector in our cafeteria to accommodate large group demonstrations and PTO events.
Our HSO has now officially transitioned to a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). The PTO has many excellent family events planned over the next few months so be sure to mark your calendars.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming Back to School BBQ and Open House.
