  • Lost and Found: We are trying very hard to solve our Lost and Found issues! Thanks to Mr. Oolders and his student volunteers, we think we have figured out a way to help get lost clothing back to the right children. Mr. Oolders has created a link on our website dedicated to Lost and Found.  Go to smyth.mansd.org and go to the left side of the page and click on Lost and Found. Next you will be able to scroll through photographs of “lost” items. New pictures are added each week since our Lost and Found grows every day. If you recognize an item as belonging to your child, the item can be found in a box at the gym’s entrance. Items that are not claimed by the end of November will be donated. We will also donate unclaimed items at the end of March and at the end of the school year.
  • Picture Re-takes: If you are not satisfied with your photos, or your child was absent on picture day, we have scheduled a picture re-take day for Tuesday, November 14th. Please send in the pictures you do not want with your child on the re-take day.
  • No School: Tuesday, November 7th: Because Tuesday, November 7th is Election Day and many schools will be used as voting places, there is no school for students on that day. The district calendar lists it as a Workshop day, but this is a professional workshop day for teachers, not for students. 
  • Tardy Students: We have been finding that far too many of our students are coming in tardy to school. Student arrival is at 8:30 a.m. and instruction begins at 8:45 a.m. Students are tardy if they arrive after 8:45 a.m. It is very disruptive to have students enter the classroom once instruction begins. Please help get your children to school on time.
  • Holiday Vendor & Craft Fair: Smyth Road PTO is hosting their 2nd Holiday Craft Fair on Saturday, November 18th from 9 am to 1 pm. This should be a great event to get some Holiday shopping done! Admission is free and there will be plenty for children to do. There will be bake sale items and a craft table for kids as well!
  • Fall Festival: Our annual Fall Festival was held on Friday, October 20th. This event was an enormous success! In the evening the school was packed with spooky costumed students playing games and having treats. Thank you to all of the volunteers who stepped up and came together at the end to put together this big annual event. On Halloween Day, October 31st, students headed out to the playground to see Mrs. Otero and Ms. Briggs send some bats flying into the air from atop a fire department’s bucket truck. The firemen took them so high up in the air they could see the whole city. The bats that landed on or closest to N.H. on the United States map on the playground won! Our winners were: 1st Place: Phoebe O’Shaugnessy-Walsh, 2nd place: Kendra Kazanowski, 3rd place: Wes Catenza and 4th place: Tyler Gonzales. 
  • Veteran’s Day: There is no school next Friday, November 10th for the observance of Veteran’s Day.
  • P.T.O.: The next P.T.O meeting will be Wednesday, November 8th in the Smyth Rd. library at 6:00 p.m.

Student of the Month:  We had our October Road Runner Rally assembly on October 31st. At this assembly we recognized the October students of the month. They earned this recognition because of their positive energy, great work ethic, and kind words and deeds.
