Important! Want to make a difference?

Every year, the PTSA supports and sponsors many of the events and programs that enhance our children's education. From the science fair, to field trip support, to classroom resources, these things are made possible with the help of our generous parents and guidance of the PTSA board.  We're looking for a few parents who, like us, believe in doing all they can to enhance the education of our children. This is the time of year when we form our board for the upcoming school year. If you're interested in learning how you can put your time, skills and energy to work for our children, please contact nominations@smithptsa.org, or use the nomination form below. Here are job descriptions for positions available [PTSA Job Descriptions].

Virtual STEM Fair 2020

In the spirit of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in the times of social distancing, we're rebooting the STEM Fair to make it virtual this year. Even if you haven't made a STEM project for the fair, you will be able to participate. If you have made a project, there will be a way for you to participate, too. Participation is not mandatory, of course, but it could be a fun way to explore STEM topics and develop a love of STEM. The platform we're using is FlipGrid, where students will be able to either post their responses to STEM related topics, or post short videos about their STEM project.
We'll be accepting posts now through June 13th. All Smith students/families are invited to view the posts.

Corona Rock Garden

Join us in creating “Corona Rock Garden” at Smith 
Covid-19 crisis requires us to be creative in the way we can connect with one another. Our Family and Community Engagement (FACE) chair, Danit Erlich, thought of a fun and safe way to connect by creating a “Corona Rock Garden” at our school. It will also be a reminder to spread JOY during the crazy time we are in.

Let’s see if we can reach the goal of 100 rocks! We invite everyone – school staff, parents and students to create special rocks as a part of our Smith family.

1. Choose rocks from your yard or at the park and paint them. Turn it to a fun, family activity.
Ideas: turn your rock to an animal, fruit, write an inspiring word or just paint it and turn the gray rock to a cheery rock. You can even sign your name, teacher and year.
2. The rock garden is located in front of the reader board at the entrance of the school. There's a small sign there. We will share the garden pictures on our PTSA Facebook page.

School Supply Kits

Smith Parents

It's that time of the year again! The EduKit website to order school supplies for the year 20/21 is now live. Place your orders by June 19 for best pricing and free shipping to the school. 

You can click a button and get all your kid's school supplies in one convenient kit. We deliver and your child can show up prepared for the first day of class. You don't need to run to stores in the times of social distancing! 

There is an extended ordering window from June 20 - Aug 07, but the pricing goes up and the supplies will be shipped to the student's home instead of the school.

You can place your order here.

Our professional and dedicated team is available to work with you and answer any questions you may have. 

Do you match?...
