Mr. Kelley Returns!
Hello Sentinel Nation! It is great to be back at the helm of Smithfield High School. I had a fantastic year serving as president of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). My term ended on June 30th and I am officially back in the office on July 2nd. If you want to learn more about my year check out the news section on my personal blog. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall!

SHS Administrative Staffing Changes
We have a few changes taking place in the main office at the high school. Mr. Hopkins will be returning to the assistant principal role. Mrs. Murphy is leaving SHS to take the principal position at Whelan Elementary in North Providence. We wish her well. Mrs. Koller who served as an interim assistant principal this year will stay on as assistant principal. We are excited to have her continue in this role!
Our school-wide summer reading book is, Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology and the Business of Keeping Us Hooked by Adam Alter. We feel that this book, which is an extremely topical piece, can benefit us all. It will be utilized as a basis for school-wide events and summer reading work next year. The flyer can be found: HERE.
Attention Incoming Freshmen
A couple of notes:
- Freshmen Orientation is on THURSDAY, AUGUST 23, from 5:30-7:30 pm at the high school. This is a mandatory event for freshmen and at least one parent. Freshmen will receive their schedules, have an opportunity to find their classes, work on your locker, and have dinner with your class advisors. More info to come later in the summer!
- You will receive supply lists the first week of school.
- Make sure you complete your summer reading book!

July is a slow month at SHS. The Admin team will be taking vacation time and attending conferences. We will be updating the school website with important information throughout the summer. Be sure to check the School News section of our website weekly to be sure not to miss anything.
