Greetings Smithfield Packers!
It is indeed an honor and a privilege to serve as your principal for the 2015-2016 school year. Here at Smithfield High School we are “creating the expectation and habits of excellence” through the cultivation of a dynamic and responsive learning environment, challenging students to their potential, and engaging the community in active involvement.
I am equally proud to announce our new school brand called PACKER FOCUS! The three areas within the PACKER FOCUS: Community Matters, Culture Matters, and Learning Matters encompass the uncompromising mindset that a high quality education is a holistic mission that requires rigorous teaching and learning, the development of strong partnerships with the community, and the creation of a bold school culture that ENGAGES, ENCOURAGES, and EMPOWERS!
Leadership and management expert Peter Drucker says it best, “The best way to predict the future is to create it”. It is our goal this year to not only pursue greater SOL scores and to meet state/federal standards (which are very important), but our goal is to actively engage all stakeholders to CREATE and integrate better methods by which to educate and inspire our students for the future. Join us as we embark on creating effective communicators, autonomous learners, critical thinkers, and responsive citizens! Teamwork makes the DREAM work!
With Packer Pride,
Casey M. Roberts, Ed.S.
STAY INFORMED! STAY CONNECTED!
