Parents, as part of the learning community at Smithson Valley, you are just as important to your childrenís education as any teacher that we have.
Your children receive the best education when you and our dedicated teachers work as a team. In addition to our teacherís ability to teach what your children need to learn, itís a parentís enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best. Together we can set goals, both individual and group/team, but most importantly provide your child with the most engaging, meaningful, quality education. We want every child to succeed and to enjoy their high school career.
There is a lot of excitement ahead of us, including 25 new teachers and paraprofessionals to meet, new books to read, new friends to make and new skills to master. We will also be welcoming over 650 new freshmen to campus, one of the largest classes to come through our doors in a long while. I look forward to you sharing in these exciting times.
I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to take the time from your busy schedules to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework-friendly home environment that will allow your children to excel.
Thank you for your commitment to your childís education and I look forward to see you in the very near future.
