Sophomore student wins a Bright Light Diversity award for social justice activism

We are delighted to share the news that Sophomore Angela Rivero will be recognised  on Feb 8th by GCC as a Bright Light Diversity award winner for her social justice activism in the summer of last year. Please read this article for more details



This week in CREW we started a five week program that celebrates Black History Month and continues our work on diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. Students and staff were invited to watch the Amanda Gorman read her poem, "The Hill We Climb" and explore the ideas of how we as a school community might come together to be more inclusive for all of our members. I am delighted to share that Smith Academy is partnering with the Hatfield Library to provide a vast array of resources for students and families to explore. Please do spend some time looking through suggested things to read and watch, here.
