Oh The Places We’ll Go!
I know we can’t seem to catch a break with the weather, but don’t let that bad weather keep you from enrolling your child in the spring season of Soccer Shots. Your child will have a blast each week playing fun games, practicing new skills, and reinforcing character building traits all through the game of soccer. Our coaches can’t wait to get the season started, so click the link below for more information and to get your child enrolled!
Our Fun Run program has begun! Your student received a Pledge Book on Monday. This provides details on how to collect sponsors and pledges on FunRun.com. Please help our school attain our goal of raising $15,000 for important Smithfield school programs, by reaching out to friends and family members who would be willing to sponsor your student for the Smithfield Fun Run! Pledging is easy and can be done online or by check.
And, don’t forget to mark your calendars for the big event on Wednesday, February 20th! Every Smithfield student will participate in our exciting Fun Run event!

Let Me Run is returning to Smithfield Elementary this spring!
Let Me Run is a running program for 4th-8th grade boys, but it’s more about the boy than the run. Counteracting the negative pressures society places on boys, the program uses running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach them. Combining exercise with fun activities and lessons, our trained coaches inspire boys to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live an active lifestyle.
Registration is now open! The spring season starts on Tuesday, March 26th, meets Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:45pm – 4:00pm, and ends with our SpringFest 5k race on Saturday, May 18th.
To learn more and register, please visit letmerun.org.
