Message from the Principal

Greetings Smithfield Packers!

I would like to welcome returning and new students/parents to Smithfield High School for the 2016-2017 school year. This school year is going to be one of excitement, new possibilities, and new challenges for our students. As a school and division we will be embarking on a journey into Deeper Learning. Our model will center on the development and application of the 5Cs into our daily practice and school culture. The 5Cs (collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, communication, and citizenship) represent the skills that our students need to be successful in the 21st century marketplace.

Our focus this year is on transforming our school culture. We acknowledge that a robust school culture is the “crown jewel” of any high performing school. As such we are continuing our commitment that Learning Matters, Culture Matters, and Community Matters. We call these three principles Packer Focus

On your student's schedule there is a course called Academic Enrichment. This block is called Packer Block. During Packer Block your student will engage with other grade level peers and a teacher mentor in a year long discussion about the Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens (Sean Covey) and develop, learn, apply the 5Cs (collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, communication, and citizenship). Topics ranging from digital citizenship, how to dress to impress, how to apply critical thinking skills, leverging technology, and many more will be discuss during this 30 minute enrichment block everyday. This block is an advisory block and is meant to be interactive, fun and engaging. There are no grades and the overarching goal for Packer Block is to build a more resilient student and a stronger Packer Community!   

As we embark on this journey I ask that you partner with us to provide the best education for each and every student at Smithfield High School. I look forward to meeting everyone in person at some point in time this year and proudly leading the way to greatness here at Smithfield High School. Go Packers! 

With Packer Pride,
Casey M. Roberts, Ed.S.
