"Happy Friday, Smith Families!
We have a lot to be thankful for as we head into Thanksgiving week next week. We have had a smooth transition back to virtual learning, and we thank you for making sure your students are attending school virtually every day. We are also thankful for our hardworking teachers and staff, making this a positive experience for students and families. Remember that next week, we have online classes on Monday and Tuesday, from 8:15 am-1:15 pm, but there is no school Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday as we will be on Thanksgiving Break. Enjoy that time with your families, and our staff will be doing the same.
We have exciting news! The Smith Virtual Spelling Bee will take place the week of December 1st. Parents may register any Smith student, kindergarten through 8th grade, until November 30th at https://online-test.spellingbee.com. See the flyer on Class Dojo and our school Facebook page for more details. We will also attach the flyer to our autodialer email.
Progress Reports will be sent home by your child's teachers via email and Class Dojo on Monday and Tuesday next week. This will be a good opportunity for you to see how your students are progressing toward their grade level goals prior to Benchmark Assessments, which happen in early December. You play an important role in your student's investment in their grades and performance. Please discuss your child's progress report with them and reach out to your child's teacher with any questions. If you are not connected to Class Dojo or have not provided your email address to your child's teacher, please call the office to provide an email address during business hours, 7:45 am-4:00 pm, and remember the office will be closed on Wednesday through Friday for Thanksgiving Break.
We look forward to seeing our students online Monday and Tuesday and hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Break after that."
