MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Our first PTA Association Meeting is next Thursday (9/17).  Please take some time to read through the agenda and take the Doodle poll to let us what time(s) you are available by Thursday (9/10). We’ll pick the time that works best and circulate zoom details.

JOIN THE SMITH PTA

Our theme this year is “Individually Unique, Together Complete.” Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected. We are counting on you to meet 100% membership again this year. Join Smith PTA today.

ORDER SPIRIT WEAR 

Show your Smith Surfer Pride. We have some great selections to choose from this year! The first order deadline is next Sunday (9/13). Note that we have a few delivery options: pick-up in store (fastest, and free), pick up at school, and home delivery.

GET INVOLVED 

The Smith PTA  consists of volunteers from all walks of life, with the common goal of making Smith the best school for our kiddos. We may be distance learning at the moment, but there are plenty of opportunities that you can help remotely. Fill out the interest form to receive more details.

STAY INFORMED

You can stay current about what is happening at Smith by attending our monthly meetings, subscribing to our weekly Newsletters,  and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Have a Great Labor Day Weekend!

Sincerely,
Freddie.
