This week is Spirit Week at SHS. We have lots of fun events and dress up days. The homecoming football game and dance will take place on Friday evening. The annual bonfire is scheduled for Thursday evening but keep an eye on the weather. We may be impacted by the storm hitting the Gulf Coast early this week. Here is a link to the full week of events.

Commissioner of Education Visits SHS This Week!
SHS had some special guests this past Wednesday. Mary Ann Snyder and Commissioner Wagner from the RI Department of Education spent the afternoon visiting with administrators, staff, and students.

School Bond Forums
Did you know? If the state school construction bond passes, the state will pay its share of a portion of Smithfield’s school construction costs so that we will NOT need to borrow all 45 million – only our share. This will be a game changer. Please check out one of the upcoming bond forums to learn more!
