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!

Mini Milers Coaches Needed

A Mini Milers update from coach Sue Chayer:

We Need YOU!

CP Smith is a running school! We have 50+ kids signed up for Mini Milers and 6.5 adults who have joined our coaching team. We are looking for more leaders for our Wednesday afternoon practices, starting Wednesday, April 10th. Here is info about that:

Please join coaches Bryan Connolly, Christine White, Philip Pezeshki, Jess Lasher, Stephanie Young, Amy Kiviranna and Sue Chayer for another season of Mini Milers at CP Smith.  Mini Milers is non-competitive running program for kids in grades K-5 and sponsored by Run VT. We hold one hour practices every Wednesday 2-3PM (directly after school) at CP Smith starting next Wednesday, April 10th.

• Leaders are role models who help build healthy habits and healthy communities while having lots of fun
• Leaders teach children grades K-5 about: Staying Active, Healthy Foods, Helping Hands and Goal Setting •
• RunVermont offers discounted entry into one of our events for all leaders and co-leaders

Please let Sue Chayer (suechayer98@gmail.com) know if you would like to join us this season.
