Greetings Panther family,
What a great year for the Panther family! This year SMS hosted our first EXPO of Learning, and it was by all measures a great success. We also started our community garden at Windsor Castle Park, worked together with a local group of beekeepers to raise funds by building and auctioning off bee boxes, and created artwork and furniture out of recycled materials. SMS also started our very own maker space with the help of our PTA and some local citizens. This space allowed students to build white board table toppers for use in science class as well as to create a score for our very own “Sounds of Smithfield” written by the 8th grade band.
Our Jr. BETA club travelled and competed first at the state convention and just recently returned from National Convention held this year at Disney Orlando!
I am looking forward to see what next year holds in store for us. SMS teachers have been planning projects and lessons for the new year. We are all very excited to continue our move forward into Deeper Learning together with all IWCS schools!
Have a wonderful and restful summer.
