Principal's Corner

October 2018

Dear Parents,

Smoketree’s First Quarter Awards Ceremony will be Thursday, October 4, 2018. (First & Second Grade at 8:10 am; Third & Fourth Grade at 9:10 am, and Fifth & Sixth Grade at 10:10 am.) At that time, we will be recognizing our Smoketree Cougars for their Academic Achievement. Awards will be given for the Principal’s Honor Roll, Honor Roll, Positive Attitude Award and Perfect Attendance. We are looking forward to celebrating and recognizing our students’ success with you.


Please mark your calendars for the Parent Teacher Conferences the first week in October. It’s requested that all parents attend a scheduled “report card” conference with your child’s teacher. This is an opportunity for a parent and teacher to discuss each student’s performance in the classroom. This is an excellent time to ask the teacher for specific suggestions on ways to help your child be a successful learner. Please plan on attending. Thank you for being on time for your conference and calling if an emergency arises and you will not be able to attend. If you are a working parent who cannot arrange to meet during the scheduled conference times, communicate this to the teacher and set up a time that is convenient for both of you.

Our purpose is to help your child succeed. Meeting with your child’s teacher builds strong parent-teacher partnerships.

A meeting must be held with the teacher in order to receive your child’s first report card.

Emergency Drill Practice

It is one of our foremost priorities to maintain a safe environment for our students. Safety procedures such as fire drills and lockdowns are practiced throughout the school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at 928-505-6020.


Your Partner in Education,
Connie Hogard, Principal
