In Search of Some Toys

Hello CP Smith families…

We’ve had a request to try and round up some gently used toys for ages 5-7.  Interactive toys like legos, board games, card games / decks of cards, little cars, books, puzzles…things like that.  Only safe toys please, no weapons!  If you have any you’d like to donate you can leave them at the front desk and tag them for Christine Armstrong.

Thank you!

Anybody Have Access to a Small Solar Panel to be Used at School?

Hi all,

CP Smith kindergarten teacher Adam Deyo is interested in borrowing a small solar panel in order to show the kids how the power of the sun can be harnassed to light a lightbulb.  Cool right?

Do any of you awesome parents have one or know of someone who could provide such a thing temporarily?  If yes, please email us at cpsmithpto@gmail.com.


Welcome Back CP Smith Families!!

Welcome back everybody!  CP Smith is hopping again!  What a pleasure to see so many new and familiar faces.

Let’s kick off the new year right!

There will be music and fun, and lots of great people!

Our Teachers Rock, Don’t They?

Hi Smith Families,

I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the teachers at CP Smith School going the extra mile for our kids!  Next week is a perfect opportunity to show them that we notice and appreciate the hard work, love, and caring they put into each day.

Teacher Appreciation Week begins on Monday 5/4.  The PTO has arranged a catered lunch to be served to teachers Monday and we are organizing a gift for the copy room as well.

BUT!, there is nothing like the personal touch! Please feel free to send in little treats or notes of appreciation to your child’s teacher.  Attached is a form letter that might help younger students express their thoughts.  It can be tailored in any way you see fit, but wouldn’t it be cool for teachers to receive a bunch of these during the week?
