Carolina Panthers Surprise our 5th Grade Students
On Tuesday, September 13th, a few Carolina Panthers and TopCats stopped by our 5th grade classrooms for a surprise visit. The students engaged in Play60 activities, where they did push-ups, squats, and even some dancing. Thank you Carolina Panthers!
P21 Exemplar Schools
We just completed the application to become a P21 Exemplar School, which recognizes schools across the country that are preparing students for college, career and citizenship by embedding critical 21st century competencies into the learning environment.
If selected, this would be a fantastic recognition to all of the amazing things going on at Smithfield! Attached is the application and the supporting documents we submitted. I encourage you to go to the P21 website ( www.p21.org ) to read more about the organization and other exemplar schools!
