Ed Smith School Vision
To be the most improved school in the district - 
where EVERY child learns and grows.


Dear Families,
Happy Holidays!    I would like to take a moment to thank you for all of the support throughout the school year and  the well wishes most recently during my absence.
Special thanks to Interim Principal, Janet Kimatian and vice principals Christina Louis and Marshella Mason for keeping Ed Smith safe and successful.
Please be sure to check out our webpage, Facebook(Ed Smith K-8)  and Twitter (@EdSmithVP) to see one of our students enthusiastically conducting the band and receiving a standing ovation from the audience during our recent holiday concert.  We also are concluding our first round of STAR testing data and the results are showing improvement school wide.   I will be sharing this information at an upcoming PTO meeting on January 12th and teachers will be sharing this information on your child’s individual performance as well.  Our students will be setting new goals for themselves in the new year also, as many have already achieved their year-long goals!!  Special thanks to our Instructional coach BethAnn Smith who has worked so hard organizing our instructional schedules.
Again, thank you for a wonderful year and to many more !
Happy Holidays!
Mr. Barber
