Spirit Wear Days Are Coming!

Each and every Friday, send your child to school proudly wearing our school color, navy blue! (White with it is okay too!) Better yet, have them wear their spirit wear shirts and gear! Starting in October, 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.

Kindergarten Garden and Playground Before and Afters!

We’ve had many Smith PTA volunteers busy beautifying our school! If you haven’t noticed already, our Kindergarten Garden has had a major makeover from one of our Smith moms, Lauren Smith and her small but dedicated group of helpers! Check out these before and after pics! Wow! The garden has been completely cleared of weeds, new plants have been planted, and she was able to get surfboards donated that she painted. Doesn’t it look great? Our Smith Surfer pride definitely shows over by Kindergarten now! Thank you!

 

And…in case you missed it, we also gave the Kindergarten playground a fresh new look too! Smith PTA purchased a program called Peaceful Playgrounds to provide more interactive and cooperative P.E. and recess activities for kids. We had many volunteers show up to help paint and it looks great! Our plan is to work on the other playgrounds over the summer. For now, we have new basketball nets and new recess equipment/balls for our students. Thanks to all of your support of Smith PTA so that we can make this happen! Donations to Smith PTA (like through our Step It Up fundraiser) are what make this possible.
