Greetings!

If your child is returning to Smith School for the 2014-15 school year and you would like to provide information about her/him that would be helpful to us in the student placement process, please complete and return your form to the main office on or by Friday, April 18th.  Please complete a separate form for each of your children who will be attending Smith School next year.  If you need additional copies of this form, you may pick one up at the main office or the information kiosk in the main lobby.  These forms are closely reviewed by the teacher teams who conduct the placement process. 

Application forms for the district’s summer school program can be found on the information kiosk in the main lobby.  Please note that the registration deadline for summer school is May 16, 2014.  Transportation to/from the program, breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided.  There is no charge for summer school.  The program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from July 7th through August 15th.    

Our school honored Mr. Doug Davis, Burlington School District Food Service Director, and our own Mr. Dan Marshall, Mrs. Lisa Moody, and Mrs. Arleen Bennett at a short assembly last week.  The Food Service Department recently received an award for the 6th best program in the United States due to the nutritious food offered each day, the use of local foods in preparing meals, the Breakfast in Classrooms program, access to an afternoon meal as part of the Burlington Kids Afterschool Program, and the orchard recently planted on our school grounds, which will someday provide us with our own supply of fresh fruit.  As another way to honor these wonderful individuals for their work, the school is collecting donations for Hunger Free Vermont, a local education and advocacy group with a mission of ending hunger in our state.  If you would like to learn more about Hunger Free Vermont, please visit their website at hungerfreevt.org.  Donations for Hunger Free Vermont may be left at the main office anytime before May 31st.   Checks may be made out directly to HFV.  Thank you for your generosity in making sure our friends and neighbors have enough to eat. 

As the weather gets warmer, we often have to remind students of our school dress code.  Your help and support in making sure your children are dressed appropriately and respectfully are greatly appreciated.  The code states, “Your child is expected to wear clothing appropriate for school activities.  Clothing should be comfortable for learning and play.  Parents are encouraged to monitor their children’s choice of clothing.  To ensure your child’s safety and to maintain a positive learning environment, the following clothing items are not permitted at school: high heels, inappropriately short skirts or shorts, halter tops or tops with “spaghetti” straps, t-shirts with inappropriate words or advertising, midriff tops, or underwear that is visible.”  If a child does wear one of these items to school, parents/guardians will be contacted to bring appropriate clothes to school. 

Thank you for all you do to make our school a community of respectful, responsible, and safe learners.
