Dear Packer Families,


Welcome back to another exciting school year at Smithfield High School! We hope that you all had a wonderful and relaxing summer, and are ready for a year filled with learning, growth, and memorable experiences.


We extend a warm welcome to our returning students and a heartfelt greeting to our new ones. Our dedicated faculty and staff have been working diligently to prepare for the upcoming academic year, and we are eager to embark on this journey of discovery together. Our focus this year will be on fostering a sense of community, collaboration, and creativity. We will continue to blend traditional teaching methods with innovative approaches, ensuring that each student's individual strengths are recognized and nurtured.


Communication is vital, and we encourage parents and guardians to remain engaged in their child's education. Our doors are always open, and we invite you to attend parent-teacher conferences, school events, and meetings to stay informed about your child's progress. In the spirit of collaboration, we invite parents to join one or more of our Booster clubs (Athletics, Band, and Chorus). Your involvement can make a significant difference in enhancing our school's offerings and creating a vibrant school community.


Let's approach this academic year with enthusiasm, curiosity, and a determination to make it a successful one. Our teachers and staff are here to support you every step of the way. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and welcoming new ones as we begin this exciting journey together. Here's to a year filled with growth, laughter, and achievement!


Warm regards,


Patricia Cuffee
