Open House & K Orientation

Tomorrow is a big day! Kindergarten Orientation is from 1-2pm and Open House for grades 1-5 is from 2-3pm. Open House is an opportunity for your student (and you!) to see their teacher and how the class is set up prior to the first day of school. Masks are required in the building.

The Yearbook is in Production!

The yearbook was submitted for publication today! 🥳🥳 Every student at CP Smith will receive one from the PTO, and copies will also go to classroom libraries and the main library. We worked hard to sell business ads to offset the cost, but still need to raise approximately $950 to cover the rest. If you’re able to make a donation, we would really appreciate it! https://cpsmithpto.square.site/

Yearbook distribution will happen the last full week before summer vacation. It’s almost here!

That way when you do your shopping, you can have the opportunity to support another Smith community member.

Update: Reimbursement Requests


Hello Smith families!  As you are probably well aware, PTO activities are postponed for the foreseeable future.  However, we are still able to reimburse for expenses that were already approved in our budget.  If you have a line item and would like to be reimbursed for expenses already incurred, please use the following link to submit that request.  We can only accept reimbursement requests through this form, and all checks will be mailed to the address you provide.  If you placed a reimbursement request in the PTO mailbox anytime after March 11th and it included the only copies you had of your receipts, it may not be processed until school is back in session.  If you have other copies, please resubmit your request electronically.

>Reimbursement Request Form link<

Staff and anyone involved with Mini Grants can check >this link< to see how much is left for them to request.  The overview of our budget for the year (up to date as of today) can be found >here< if you would like to take a look.  Any questions on remaining funds or reimbursements in general can be directed to cpsmithpto@gmail.com
