Picture the Music Winners
Congratulations to Lacie B., Ava L., Hailey D., Mason M., Meghan P., Carson S., and Brock C.! Their art pieces were selected to represent Smithton School in the Picture the Music Art Competition. Students in grades K-6 listened to Waltz from Masquerade Suite by composer Aram Khachaturian and responded to the piece with paintings and drawings that express creative thought and emotion inspired by the music. Seven pieces from each school were then sent to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra to compete with students' art pieces from other St. Louis area schools. They'll find out if they made the top 100 finalists in the competition very soon!

Optimist Student of the Month: January 2020
Cooper S. was chosen for this honor by the faculty and administration of the school. The guidelines used were: the student who goes out of his or her way to help others and be thoughtful and kind to others: a person who shows cooperation, follows rules and has an optimistic outlook at all times. Cooper will receive a plaque and framed Optimist Creed, and his family will be invited to the Optimist Pancake breakfast where he will be honored.
Cooper is the son of Matt and Steph Sutton. Some of his favorite hobbies and activities include soccer, baseball and playing drums in the band.
Cooper plans to go to West Point and then serve in the Army for 5 years. His favorite quote is "success is not final: failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts". --Winston Churchill
Way to go, Cooper!
