Knightly News 10/26/2018 Edition

What a great week here at Smith Middle School. This week highlighted our first "Movies with Mueller". I had the pleasure of gathering with about 85 of our Smith Knights to watch The Incredibles. Our next Movies with Mueller will be in a few short months and highlight the second movie in the series The Incredibles 2. I hope you all enjoy this edition of the Knightly News. Have a wonderful weekend!
