and the EEE staff will be moving back to Flynn
We held our annual Farewell Assembly recently and said good-bye to a wonderful group of Grade 5 students who are now transitioning on to middle school. We will miss them a great deal. I hope they will find their way back to Smith School next year (and beyond) to say hello and let us know how they are doing. Our very best wishes go out to these students and leaders of tomorrow: Sharmarke Arbow, Helen Argraves, Jennifer Bean, Noah Blood, Amaya Bradford, Aldin Brezicanin, Christian Buckeyenza, Kelcee Cadorette, Liam Chiraseveenuprapund, William Clarke, Liam Davison, Ella Decelles, Melinda Fenton-McGrath, Diana Fikiria, Ethan Griffin, Ethan Hoak, Abigail Hutchins, Mikayla Johnson, Victor Montanari, Abdifatah Musa, Kristopher O’Grady, Aidan Steeves, Jack Treat, and Nation Tyler.
Our school held its annual Arbor Day Assembly recently. Warren Spinner, the City Arborist for Burlington, joined us for the ceremony and helped us plant a peach tree in our orchard. We did so in memory of Derek Schueler, a former student who died last summer. Mrs. Christine Tetrault and Ms. Chris Souliere, teachers at our school, spoke about what a wonderful person, student, and athlete Derek was.
Smith School will be hosting a summer recreation program and the district’s ESY (Extended School Year) Summer School in the next several weeks. We are also one of several sites for the district’s summer lunch program. Any child or youth up to the age of 18 who wishes to participate may stop by school any weekday between June 23rd and August 15th (except July 4th) between 12:00-12:30 p.m. and receive a free, nutritious lunch. The child or youth does NOT need to be enrolled in the Burlington School District in order to participate in the lunch program, nor does her/his family need to meet economic qualifications. (Adults may join their children and also eat lunch for $3.75 each.) No need to sign up: just show up!
We hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer!
