February 2020 Newsletter

MIAA Ambassadors with the cans they have collected so far

Dear Smith Academy community, 

I hope you have enjoyed a great start to the decade!  

We have almost reached the midway point in the academic school year and it is impossible to completely capture everything that happens at Smith Academy in a single newsletter. Below is a smattering of news items from January.

Please follow Smith Academy on Facebook and Instagram posts to get more regular photos, stories and updates.

Wishing you the best for the upcoming month.


Chris Buckland
