Smyth Road School Newsletter

June 2017

 

June News: 

  • June is here! It’s hard to believe we have just 10 days of school remaining! With the weather as cold and damp as it’s been, it seems like we are in the middle of March! However, we certainly have had some wonderful things happen here in 2016-17. It has been an exciting school year of learning and fun at Smyth Rd. School.

Some recent highlights: 1. Winning the $1,500 Fisher Cats Reading Challenge!! (Thanks for sending back in your postcards!) 2. Being awarded a USDA Healthier US School Award 3. Receiving a $20,000 donation for technology from Bill Binnie  4. Having a Semi-Finalist for N.H. Teacher of the Year! (And we are waiting to hear if Mrs. Webber will move on in the process!) What a year!

  • Last Day: The last day of school for students will be Wednesday, June 14th. This is a full day of school with regular dismissal. The last day for our Pre-K students will be Monday, June 12th.
  • 5th Grade Events: Our parting ceremony for our 5th grade students will be on Tuesday, June 13th at 9:30 a.m. Families are invited to attend and we will also allow siblings of fifth grade students to attend the ceremony. Our 5th grade students will also be “clapped out” on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. Again, families of 5th grade students are welcome to attend. We will mark off an area with cones outside the gym door entrance for parents and family members to stand and cheer.
  • Summer Reading Program: The Manchester School District is kicking off a summer reading and learning initiative throughout the city of Manchester to raise awareness about the importance of summer reading and learning. "Booked for Summer" (#Booked4Summer) will offer elementary, middle, and high school students a variety of activities appropriate to each age group and encourage students to achieve reading and learning goals. Community partners will support the initiative and outreach efforts. The initiative consists of 3 parts: end-of-school year activities, summer activities, and beginning-of school-year activities. Students will take home a summer reading passport and age-appropriate reading lists. In the fall, students can win prizes for completing the passport.  Visit https://sites.google.com/mansd.org/bookedforsummer for more information and resources.
  • Step up and Supply Lists: We will be having a “step up day” on Monday, June 12th  in the afternoon so that all students entering a new grade level can meet all the grade level teachers,  hear about the expectations of that grade, and receive a list of grade level specific supplies. Grade level supply lists will also be posted on the school web site so that you can refer to the supply list over the summer. Students will receive letters in the mail at their home address in late August regarding their specific classroom assignment.
  • Questions/Concerns Over the Summer? Even though September is far away, there are often questions that arise in midsummer. The district will continue to post pertinent information over the summer on the district web site, www.mansd.org.  Again, we will be sending home a letter in late August about classroom assignments. The district calendar for 17-18 is posted on the district web site. The first day of school for students in grades K-12 will be Tuesday, September 5th  while Pre-K  students will have their first day on Friday, September 8th .
  • Moving?  If you are planning to move over the summer, or if you have recently moved outside the Smyth Road School district, please inform the office. We need to update our records and make sure records and files get to the appropriate school. We also want to make sure you receive our summer letter so please make sure we have your correct address.
  • Many Thanks! Thanks again to all of our volunteers this year! From science fair, popcorn poppers, yearbook coordinators all the way back to Fall Festival, you have made a difference at our school by your help and positive involvement. Thank you!

Student of the Month:  Our final Student of the Month assembly for the year was held yesterday! These students received a special certificate, and they also will be featured on the bulletin board in the main hallway through the rest of this school year and for the beginning of next school year!
