Principal's Message

Welcome to Charles L. Smith Elementary School! We are looking forward to a year filled with many new opportunities to share the joy of learning with your children. We are confident that the learning experiences will be rich and meaningful, and will be enhanced through the integration of our curriculum with dance, drama, music and visual arts as we begin to pilot new programs focusing upon Fine Arts in the near future.

Our school will continue to focus on literacy, reinforcing the necessity of learning how to read and write with confidence and success. The number one predictor of student success is still the ability to read, and we will press on with improving this skill daily. Please read with your children daily expanding their vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

Smith Elementary staff is committed to our students and community, and we would love for you to be a frequent visitor helping our students explore, imagine, and succeed.
