Principal's Welcome

Welcome to C. L. Smith Elementary School! We are proud of our school, and excited that you want to get to know us better. The staff and I work cooperatively with parents and families to provide a successful academic learning experience for each of our students.

We encourage parents and community members to get involved in our school program through volunteering time and/or resources as we help our Superstars grow into lifelong learners. Please contact me with questions, concerns, compliments and/or friendly advice--I'd love to hear from you !
