Good Afternoon from Smith Academy! 

What a great first week we've had! It has been so nice to see all of our new and returning students this year. We've been very happy to welcome five new staff members and two new student teachers this year: 

  • Ramesh Rajballie- High School History
  • Samuel Bill- High School Math 
  • Moira Pitrat- High School Science
  • Dylan Richards- Physical Education 
  • Imane Green- Educational Support 
  • Elizabeth Yost- Student teacher HS English
  • Sarah Garelick- Student teacher- HS Science

Next week, please be on the lookout for important forms coming home from school that need to be completed. Included in these are the free and reduced lunch forms. Please fill these out- even though lunch is free for students this year. The government bases some funding formulas as well as grant qualifications on those metrics, and it is important we get them back. 

Please see this update from Nurse Jean: http://hatfieldps.net/node/2022

Please remember that school starts at 7:30, and we open the doors at 7:20. Students arriving after 7:30 will be marked tardy and students arriving prior to 7:20 will not be supervised. If anyone is being dismissed early, arriving late, or absent, please call the school to let us know. 

Today, students took part in our first X-block. This year, we are able to offer 22 unique club opportunities for our students during our X-block time.

Our Open House this fall will be on September 29th from 6:00-7:30.

I'm thrilled with how this year has started, and I look forward to a wonderful school year with you all. 


Thank you,

Conor Driscoll, Ed.D.

Principal, Smith Academy
