Monday, May 3rd - Student Holiday

Monday our students get to enjoy a day off from school. Staff will be involved in Professional Development Training on campus. Elementary and Junior High staff will be working together on our district curriculum, CSCOPE, in preparation for the last six weeks and the upcoming school year.

We will see all students back on campus Tuesday for Rise & Shine at 8AM!

Have a great weekend - Ms. Murray

TAKS Tests are Complete

Today our students completed the TAKS testing make-ups which means we are finished! Our students and staff worked very hard and I appreciate their diligence in following proper procedures and providing a positive and productive atmosphere for the testing. Everyone deserves a nice weekend. Once we receive the official results the information will be shared with students and parents.

Great job everyone! Ms. Murray

Blog information in Monthly Newsletter

Today our students and parents will receive information on this blog site. Hopefully we will have individuals interested in viewing the blog and keeping up-to-date with the 'happenings' at Smithville Elementary.

Today is the 5th grade Science TAKS test and I know our students will do great. They have worked very hard throughout the year and today is their day to shine. Please be advised that students will be taking make-up tests on Friday if they were absent during the testing days this week.

Enjoy the blog - Ms. Murray

Earth Day at Smithville Elementary

Earth Day was April 22, 2010. We used the day to promote wearing green, increase our awareness of recycling, and also as a kick-off day for Bike to Work Week in May. There were 16 students and 6 staff members that either walked or rode their bikes that normally get to school via a car. We had quite a few people dressed in green all day as well. This school is awesome!

Welcome to the Smithville Elementary blog page

I am experimenting with social media to communicate with our parents and staff. I will post 'happenings' about our school as well as daily announcements on this page.

I invite comments so that this can be a good source of information for you - staff or parents.
