Recently a fourth grader teacher asked students what they love about our school. Here are three responses:
” I like how in morning meetings the principal says you have to keep trying and you will accomplish your goals.” – Emily
Hi my name is Emily. I am a student at Katherine Smith Elementary School. I like how there is free breakfast every morning. I also like how the teachers encourage us to work hard and never give up. I also like how every Monday the whole school has a meeting and talks about the K. Smith habits. They are think, learn, work, communicate, collaborate, and contribute. I like how in morning meetings the principal says you have to keep trying and you will accomplish your goals. I am always excited when school has the Harvest Festival, because we play games and wear our Halloween costumes. There is even a costume contest. Last year Governor Jerry Brown came and put a gym in our school. At P.E. we go to the gym and work out. I like how my school has Design Day. We read a book and figure out how to fix the problem and then build it. I like it because we work in groups and we work together and communicate. These are all the reasons I love it here at Katherine Smith.
“I love K. Smith School” – Leslie
Hi! My name is Leslie and I am a student at Katherine Smith School and I am in the 4th grade. My school has morning meeting every Monday. We have morning meeting, because Mr. Brengard talks about what will happen over the week. My school has a Design Day and we do design thinking. We design the thing that we are making and test it out and see if it works. If it doesn’t work we keep trying until it will work. We help people everywhere. For example, we did a can food drive and helped the people that don’t have food. We helped the people that are homeless. We had Governor Brown come to our school last year and I was excited to see him. My class has gym every Monday and Thursday. We are always happy that we go to the gym. We have to wear our college bound shirts every Friday and then on Monday they tell us who won Katie and Smitty. I love K. Smith School and it is so much fun.
“I feel safe at my school.” – Vanessa
Hi! My name is Vanessa. I am a student at Katherine Smith School and I am in 4th grade. My class is so much fun and I love my teacher. My teacher is so funny. I have so much stuff to tell you. I have so many reasons why I like Katherine Smith. We have so many special days like design day, harvest festival, Valentine’s day, birthdays, and more. Our principal Mr. Brengard is so cool. We even got to cut his tie! So funny. Last year we got to see Governor Brown and we opened the gym. We go there every Monday and Thursday. I love Katherine Smith. I feel safe in my school. My school is amazing.
