Students in Mr. Provost’s 5th grade music class have been mastering the ukulele. They have learned basic chords, strumming/picking patterns, and are now able to play many songs using these skills. Be on the lookout for a video performance from them soon!
Students in Ms. Courtney‘s 4th Grade class are working collaboratively to create a "Three Branches of Government presentation" on their Chromebooks. Yay for learning & technology! #smithtoncougarnation

In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a proclamation declaring October 6th, as National Coaches Day. In it President Nixon stated: “Coaches are highly qualified teachers—in highly specialized fields. But more than that, they are friends and counselors who help instill in their players important attitudes that will serve them all their lives.” A HUGE Thank You to all of our Cougar Coaching Staff! Go Cougars!! https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/STATUTE-86/pdf/STATUTE-86-Pg1669.pdf
