Principal's Message

Dear Smith families,

I was able to spend some time with our SOTM recipients this afternoon. We talked about National Kindness Week. I asked them what it means to be kind and how we can show kindness to others. The following are some of their thoughts: 

  • "I show kindness by sharing my stuffies."
  • "I help my brother with puzzles."
  • "If someone is sad, ask "What's wrong?"
  • "If someone falls down, you can help them up."
  • "Give compliments and support people."
  • "Say "please" and "thank you".

Thank you for raising such great students, it is truly a pleasure to work with Smith students. Please continue to stay safe and practice social distancing. Do not hesitate to contact us if you need any additional support. Have a great weekend!

With much love,

Cristal Moore                                                        

Cristal Moore, Principal
