March 2018

March News:  

Kindergarten/1st Grade Registration: Save the date! New students ready to enter Kindergarten and students who will be new to Smyth Road entering first grade can register in the Smyth Road library on Wednesday, April 11th from 8:30-11:30 a.m. or 12:00-2:30 p.m. To register for kindergarten, your child must be 5 years old by  September 30, 2018 . Information about registration will be posted on the district web site and in the newspaper. I will also post more information about this registration in next month’s newsletter.

Invention Convention and Science Fair:  

Invention Convention: The 5th Annual Invention Convention for students in K-2 will take place on Tuesday, March 20th. Interested students are encouraged to come up with a problem that needs a solution, and then share their work with family and friends. Thank you so much to parent volunteer, Kristen Venator, for again coming forward to run this event for our students!

Science Fair: Also our annual PTO sponsored Science Fair for students in grades 3-5 will take place the next night, Wednesday, March 21st. We are looking forward to hearing our students share their knowledge and scientific thinking.  Once again, many thanks to science fair coordinators Heather Noon and her Mom, Irma “Granny” Graf for their hours of planning, coaching and coordinating.

Enrichment and Fisher Cats Reading: Two important forms were sent home on Wednesday with students. It is time to sign up for our 3rd session of Enrichment which will begin on Friday, March 16th. We would like these enrichment forms returned by Tuesday, March 13th so we can make sure all students receive one of their 3 choices. This has been a very successful experience for both students and staff and we are looking forward to the next session! We also sent home a post card with information about the Fisher Cats Reading challenge. Our goal is 100% participation in this challenge! Students can be awarded free tickets to a Fisher Cats game for reading and the school can win $$ if we have total school participation.

Thank you!: On behalf of the PTO and Smyth Rd, thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out at the book fair last month. Also thank you to all who shopped at the Book Fair and supported our school. Thanks especially to Smyth Rd. reading teacher, Amy Colby, for coordinating this large worthwhile event!

Bingo Night:  Come out and support the PTO’s third annual Bingo Night this Friday, March 9th.  It is a fun family night! Plus there is Pappy’s pizza available!

St.Patrick’s Day Parade: For the first time ever, Smyth Road will be participating in Manchester’s annual “green” parade. Come see some Road Runners march down Elm Street on Sunday, March 25th at the annual St. Pat’s Day parade! 

Report cards: Our second trimester report cards will be issued on Thursday, March 29th.  Again, the report card copy is yours to keep, but please sign and return the envelope.

Basketball teams: Congratulations to our Smyth Road basketball teams on their outstanding seasons. Both teams made it to the playoffs and won their initial playoff games! Both teams made us proud because of their outstanding positive spirit and good sportsmanship. Thank you to coaches Terry Mann for the girls’ team and boys’ team coach, Tom Lessard. We appreciate the time devoted to developing our young athletes!

Student of the Month:  We had our February Student of the month assembly before vacation. Students were recognized for their positive energy, great work ethic, and kind words and deeds. The students of the month for February received a special certificate, and they also will be featured on the bulletin board in the main hallway. Additionally our students of the month will have lunch with the principal!
