December 2019 Newsletter

Dear Students and Families,

I hope that you are looking forward to Thanksgiving break and ready for December.

Last Friday, November 22nd, seven Smith Academy students were inducted into the Sophia Chapter of the National Honor Society. We congratulate them for their exceptional scholarship, leadership, service and character and wish them well as student role models for the rest of their time at Smith Academy.

Best wishes

Chris Buckland
