Within Reach! 2017-18 Art Reflections Program

One of my favorite things about back to school is the opportunity the kids get to create their own art to submit to the Art Reflections Program. If your child has never participated in this, I highly suggest it. There are 6 different categories to chose from: Dance/Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition,  Photography, and Visual Arts. This years theme is “Within Reach”. You can find a flyer in your first day packet that explains how to get more information. You can also fill it out below and return to school with your child. Submissions are due the first part of October so be sure to get started soon!

Looking For Ways to Get Involved?

There are so many ways to get involved at Smith. 100% of the programs and events that the PTA offers are run by volunteers. This year we are looking for a few more to head up some of the Committees we have here on campus. We are currently looking to fill the following  positions:

Directory Coordinator: Compile the information for our school directory

Family Fun Nights Communications: Send out flyers to remind parents about our upcoming events and be a greeter at the door at the event

School Displays/Communications: Update our glass display boards monthly at school

School Spirit Day Coordinator: Each Friday, get the tally results from classroom teachers and give 1 class per grade level with a school spirit flag to display for the week.

Skate Parties: Send out flyers (pre-made) and attend the Skate Party events. Give out participation prizes.

Volunteer Coordinator: Work with committee chairs about upcoming events to compile a list of needed volunteers and post this information on signup.com

Reflections Coordinator (training is available in September): Immediate Need for this!! Can be 2-3 people. Initially, send out packets to those interested in participating, then collect art as it comes in. Full training will provide the details for this fun and rewarding position that is just early in the year (except for coordinating an art display at Open House in February).

Jog A Thon (will be trained this year to take it over next year): Distribute flyers, collect Shout Outs, coordinate set up and tear down the day of the event.

Parliamentarian (this is an Executive Board position. Training is available.): Join our Exec Team and help us keep on track by following the rules of our bylaws closely!

Auditor (this is an Executive Board position. Training is available.): Join our Exec Team and conduct an audit twice a year. Be a part of our checks and balances system.

 

 

If you think you would be a great fit for any of these positions please email president@smithpta.org. We would love to have you as part of the Smith PTA volunteer family!

Spirit Wear Days Are Coming!

We are excited to introduce Spirit Wear Fridays at Smith! Each and every Friday, send your child to school proudly wearing our school color, navy blue! Better yet, have them wear their spirit wear shirts and gear! We will even have contests by grade level to see who has the most school spirit! The winner each Friday will get to display a school spirit flag outside of their classroom for the following week.

Last year, every student who participated in the Step It Up program earned a free spirit wear t-shirt with our NEW logo! Shirts will be distributed on the first day of school. Kindergarten students can purchase them for $5.

We will have a whole line up of new spirit wear this year with our new logo! Be on the watch for a flyer soon with new shirt and sweatshirt designs, hats, coffee cups, and more! We’ll have spirit wear for kids, for teachers, and for parents too! We can all show our Smith Surfer pride!
