Smithfield Middle School
Expo of Deeper Learning
Dear SMS Families,
The students and staff of Smithfield Middle School are proud to present their first expo of deeper learning on Thursday, February 23, 2017. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and we are asking that all parents report to the auditorium for a PTA message and warm welcome from our student presenters at 5:45 p.m. Students should report to their classroom/station to prepare for the event that will take place from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m.
The PTA will be selling pizza ($2.00), drinks, and snacks ($1.00) to help raise money for our school makerspace. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Please be on the lookout for our “Panther Paw” around town and from your student. This paw has a QR code that can be scanned for more information and if you bring the paw the night of expo you can use it to enter a raffle for fantastic prizes.
Students have been focused on how the 5 C’s (citizenship, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity) play an important role in school and life. This expo gives students an opportunity to showcase this work to a wider audience. Your support of this event is crucial to its success and we are asking for your commitment to attend.
Come out to see the Dolphin’s Character and World Travel projects. The Sharks are all a “buzz”’ about their bee boxes, cells, and WWI cereal boxes, and the Stingrays are showcasing their team Bio-book project, Amusement Park Cells, Body Biographies, How to change the World project, and Moving West Survival Guides.
The Falcons, Ospreys, and Hawks have worked collaboratively on a Presidential Civics T-shirt project and will also have historical trading cards on display. The 8th grade teams will have living gameboards, History of Atoms movies, Density Submarines, a Periodic Table Mural, Energy in My House projects, Ornament Elements, Game of Life project, and Origami Cubes on display. Resource teams have creative book projects, robotics, and musical art displays.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the SMS Expo of Deeper Learning February 23, 2017.
