Welcome To Smith-Barnes Elementary!We’re off to a new school year! Hopefully you and your family had an enjoyable and restful summer. As we embark upon a new year, my goal is to provide a quality education. Careful consideration and planning will be given to meet the individual needs of each student. The intellectual, emotional, and social development of your child is extremely important to me. The parent is the child’s first teacher. So, it is vital that educators and parents work together to develop a relationship that will promote the growth and development of the whole child. Research has indicated that parents who are involved in their child’s education are more successful in their academic achievements. Therefore, I am soliciting your support to help me accomplish my goal. I believe, as a parent and teacher team, we will provide a strong foundation to help your child be successful this school year.
