Staff’s Favorite Things

Favorite Things Binder Cover

Are you looking to get a staff member a little something?  The PTO has asked staff members to complete a worksheet on their favorite things, and the completed forms are available in a binder in the front office.  And now they’re here in electronic form as well!  Click on the staff member’s name below to see their completed form.

If a staff member is not listed here, it means we have not received the form back from them yet.  And if they have a classroom wish list it is also linked next to their name!

The Fundraising Committee is collecting feedback on Smith Smackeroos!  Follow this link to fill out our short survey: https://goo.gl/forms/zHVLkXN1RMRP4OPs2

We realize it has been a while since the last Smith Smackeroos, but there’s still time for us to evaluate what worked/didn’t and make any changes before the 2019 Spring fundraising season is upon us.  We’d love your help in examining this fundraiser!

Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza

Extravaganza meme son of a nutcracker

The 17th Annual Kids Only Shopping Extravaganza is only a month away!  On December 3rd CP Smith students will get an opportunity to shop for their families from items donated by you and other community members. We are collecting items now through November 30th.

We are looking for your “white elephants,” garage sale type items that you are ready to discard but that might be a treasure to someone else. We accept all kinds of things; toys, books, games, household, items, tools, jewelry, stationery, gift bags, etc. We ask that you do not donate clothing or stuffed animals.

Here is how the EXTRAVAGANZA works:

-C.P. Smith neighbors and families donate new and used items to be sold at the EXTRAVAGANZA!

-Your donated items can be dropped off in the main office at CP Smith, at 54 Rivermount Terrace, or on the front porch of 100 Dodds Ct. (On the corner of Shore and Dodds) from now until Friday, November 30th.

-On Monday December 3rd, all the students will be given the opportunity to shop for the people on their list.

-The items will cost $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, or $2.00.

-We love donations of gift bags and boxes so we can send kids home with gifts ready to give.

This is honestly one of the best days of the year at CP Smith. You wouldn’t believe how earnestly and carefully students consider what to buy for their families and how much pleasure they get from these donated treasures. It is a joy to behold!

Thank you in advance for your donations and for supporting the C.P. Smith community. We are looking forward to this awesome event! If you have any questions please feel free to contact Karen Ruben at 315-369-8966 kmitchell2ruben@yahoo.com
