Welcome to Smithton!

Hello 5th grade

Dear Families of Future Wildcats,

Spring is here and whether you want to admit it or not you will soon have a middle schooler in your household! It is time to start thinking about the transition to middle school. That transition can be just as hard for families as it is for our students.

The teachers and staff at Smithton Middle School are excited to welcome all new Wildcats and help with the transition to middle school. In a typical school year, we would have an open house in the spring to introduce families to our building and share what makes middle school different from elementary school; however, this year we will welcome our students to middle school virtually. On April 26th, all middle schools will be sending out videos providing information for our incoming students.

As we prepare for that video, we need your help. We want to make sure that we answer any questions you might have to help you prepare for the next school year. We ask that you take a minute to fill out the survey below so that we can make sure to address all of your questions.

5th Grade Orientation Survey:

In the fall, we’ll welcome all 6th graders to a jump start day to help your student become familiar with Smithton before the school year officially begins.  In the meantime, you can learn more about our school by visiting our website at www.cpsk12.org/sms

I wish your student a great conclusion to their 5th-grade year and look forward to seeing them this fall in the halls of Smithton Middle School.
