School made a lasting impact
I would like to begin by saying that my son had a great experience at Smithfield Middle School. His teachers, principals and coaches always encouraged him to excel in his academics and sports.
I have two daughters who also attended Smithfield Middle School, and they also received a good foundation to excel in high school, college and all future endeavors.
I have always felt welcomed to speak to the principal and staff about any concerns that I had about any of my children.
I am so proud of the bond that my son formed with some of his teaches and coaches, as they were there to support him, not only at school but also when he faced a significant loss in his life with the passing of his great-grandfather. One of his coaches and one of his teachers made sure he knew they were there to support and comfort him in his time of need, and that is something that he will always remember. The teachers and staff have left a permanent mark in his life and the lives of my daughters.
My daughters always speak of the great experiences they had at Smithfield Middle School.
When my son graduated from Smithfield Middle School in June, we were so proud of him but saddened by the ending of an era for my family as we said good-bye to Smithfield Middle School.
I would like to thank each and every teacher and staff member who touched the lives of my children.
Finally, I would like to thank Jennifer Moore for being a great principal and supporting all of the students to succeed and do their best.
