Knightly News 10/11/2019 Edition

This past Tuesday was a super fun day at Smith. We had our Snack Cart (pictured above), our UKnighted, which started with a student survey to discover what character traits they think are the most important traits to be successful here at Smith, followed by our Relay For Life Track walk outside. It was an absolutely gorgeous day outside for our walk. (video below)

Don't forget.  If you haven't already signed up for Parent/Teacher Conferences please do so as soon as possible.  appointment times are filling up fast.

Have a Great Weekend!!!

Are you interested in the environment? Do you want to make Smith and our community a cleaner, greener place? Then GREEN TEAM might be for you!

We take care of our school's recycling, educate our community on the benefits of being green and plan fun projects focused on making our world a happier, healthier place. Come join us every Monday from 3:10 - 4 pm in room 2. See Mrs. Bonnell if you have questions or come to our next meeting!

Message from our Food Service

The Troy Schools Food Service Department, which is contracted by Chartwells, is seeking friendly people willing to fill various vacancies within the Food Service Department that are responsible for providing lunches to the students of the Troy School District. Not to worry if you haven’t had previous experience, as “on the job” training will be available!

Depending on the school, the hours would primarily be during the middle of the day, but will vary depending on the vacancy. And you would be earning some extra money while your students are in school! Come join our Food Service Staff by calling 248-823-5089, or please email us at ngervais@troy.k12.mi.us.

I look forward to hearing from you!
