Student Directory Status

Note for our Smith PTSA Members: 
One of the benefits of being a Smith PTSA Member is access to the searchable online student directory.  The Student Directory is now available, but incomplete*.  We can't fully update it until the school district processes all privacy requests during the month of September.  But, you can update your own student information and help everyone benefit from the directory sooner.  Let your classmates know how to get in touch with you by making sure your account information is up-to-date now.
(Thanks to the awesome parents who already took the time to go back and update their student's teacher information!!!)
*At the beginning of the school year the student directory will only have the student information provided by parents during PTSA membership registration or account update.  This is often missing the student's teacher information.  This will be back-filled after LWSD finishes processing information privacy requests in October.

Welcome Back Smith Families!

We are excited to be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Smith and the Smith PTSA this year!  The past few weeks, your PTSA Board has been bustling about getting ready for Back to Business night and lining up volunteers to head up key PTSA sponsored programs that benefit our kids all year. 

If you have not yet renewed your annual membership for this year, please join today.  Not only does your membership help make the programs we sponsor and support possible, it also gets you access to the online directory, discounts from companies like Great Wolf Lodge and FedEx, and of course a PTSA Fast Pass at Back to Business Night!

Our mission is to support and work alongside our Parents, Teachers and Students toward the common goal of enriching, enhancing and supporting the education process at our school. But we can’t do it alone.

Emergency Kit Info: 2018-2019

Emergency Preparedness committee update, August 2018

The PTSA Emergency Preparedness committee works with school leaders to help prepare for the event of an environmental disaster or campus lockdown during school hours.  With the support of the Smith PTSA, the goal is to ensure that ALL students and staff have immediate access to necessary emergency supplies

In previous years, students were asked to either buy a personal emergency supply kit or to build their own and bring it in to school.  These kits were then consolidated and stored in the classroom.  Since the items in the kits have a shelf-life of 5+ years, the decision was made to hold on to the existing supplies and only re-stock perishable items as-needed.  (Thanks to all the families who donated their kits at the end of last year, in order to get this new model started.)

This year, the Emergency Preparedness committee has consolidated prior vendor-purchased items to make universal supply kits for each classroom.  (Homemade ‘comfort kits’ will no longer be used.)  General classroom kit items include:  food bars, water pouches, hand warmers, glow sticks, foil blankets, and a portable toilet. 

Please refer to the Smith PTSA Emergency preparedness web page for more information on kit contents, and important information for those students with dietary restrictions.
