Message from the Principal

Hello Smithfield High School Families!

I hope that our SHS Packers have enjoyed a fun-filled and restful summer! It’s time to begin a new school year, and I know that our teachers and staff are ready to engage. We look forward to serving your students as they enter or continue their high school experience at Smithfield High. I offer a special “welcome” to our new students who are joining us for the 2014 – 2015 school year.

As you know, we will continue to use technology as a tool to add rigor to our instruction. Students will be issued iPads and are expected to use this tool for classroom instruction. If parents have not attended a technology information session, please plan to do so. Our parents who attended this session when students were underclassmen (perhaps last year or the school year before) will not be required to attend another session. Only parents of freshmen or students who are new to our building will need to attend the session before the student is issued an iPad.

I believe in parent partnerships and I look forward to working with the families at Smithfield High School. I must give a plug to our Boosters organizations, as they are leading the way in our parent-teacher partnerships. We have the Band Booster Club led by President Heath Jones, the Chorus Booster Club led by President Shelley Sykes, the JROTC Booster Club led by Mr. George Clarke, and the Athletic Booster Club led by President Andy Nelson. Please support these booster associations as they give so much to our students at Smithfield High School. If you would like to join or make a donation to a booster club, please contact that organization.

If you would like to receive my weekly emails, please make sure that I have your current email address. I send the emails via Connect 5 once a week on Sunday nights. It helps keeps parents “in the know” about SHS events.

We look forward to this school year! Please contact me if you have questions or concerns. Thanks for your continued support!
