Recylce Bowl Video Competition

We need your help for a chance to win money for our school's recycling program.  We are currently collecting and weighing the recycling on our campus as a part of Keep America Beautiful's Recycle Bowl competition.  Our students are competing against schools across the country.  Our recycling crew, the TREO Team, have been steadily working to collect, weigh, and deliver our recycling to our recycling trailers.  We saw another opportunity to promote recycling through the KAB's Recycling video contest.  A group of students got together and created a short video and now we need your help.  

We need for you to view our video on YouTube and then 'like' the video.  Please share the link to our video with your family and friends.  This video is a great way to keep people in the know about the importance of recycling and making good choices for our environment.

Thank you for your support of Smithville Elementary and our efforts in recycling.

Fall Festival a Success

If anyone stayed home on Thursday night and missed our annual Fall Festival, they missed a ton of fun!  The cafetorium was packed with families playing games, enjoying the spaghetti dinner, and hoping their ticket was the lucky one as they dropped them in each basket's bucket. 

A great big THANK YOU goes to the Elementary Booster Club and the staff of Smithville Elementary in putting on a wonderful event.  We took a chance on moving the festival to an evening after school and it paid off.  Kids and their families had their fill of food and fun.

Thank you again for coming out and supporting our school.

Smithville Elementary Fall Festival

Date: Thursday, October 27, 2011
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Where: SES Cafetorium

Festival Fun
There will be fun activities to enjoy including face painting, ring toss, hoop shoot, fishing
booth, cake walk, and more! Each of the activities will require tickets to participate, so
pre-purchase those tickets now. A sheet of 26 tickets can be purchased for $7 that
night or ordered in the weeks prior to the event for only $5. One ticket per sheet is
designated for a Door Prize entry. Kids, come dressed to win at the costume contest!

The Baskets
Classes will choose a theme for their basket and ask students to bring in donations of
items that match the selected theme or to bring in cash to purchase the basket items.
This year the baskets will be won using a raffle method instead of the silent auction
style used in past years. All of the baskets will be on display on stage in the SES
cafetorium. You can then place the tickets in the containers associated with the baskets
you want to win. There is no limit to the amount of tickets which can be bought or
placed in containers! At the end of the evening, the ticket containers are collected and
the winning ticket is drawn.

The Dinner
For $5 (pre-purchase) or $6 (at the door) you will enjoy a spaghetti dinner complete with
a salad, garlic bread, and tea. Invite your friends and family to dine with you at the
school or to come get a take-out box to go!
Remember that proceeds from the Fall Festival go toward school equipment and
supplies which benefit our children and teachers of Smithville Elementary School!
