Greetings and many thanks for visiting the Samuel Smith Elementary School website.  We are the Super Sharks and you have entered the “Shark Tank”, where we DIVE for learning!  It is with great pleasure that I serve as the Principal and Supervisor of Early Childhood Education of this fine institution.  Samuel Smith Elementary School hosts students from Preschool (3 year olds) to Grade 2 and is one of three elementary schools in the City of Burlington.  The outstanding staff of Smith School is dedicated to excellence.  We nurture our students, meet their needs, cultivate their interests and inspire them to grow.

Partnership in learning makes for the most beneficial educational experience for all children.  Therefore, it is essential to have parental and community involvement.  All parents are welcome to visit our school, participate in activities and assist us in educating the whole child, socially, physically, emotionally and educationally.  Daily attendance has been linked to academic success.  Please make sure that your child is at school on time every day and ready to learn.  Be sure to read to and with your child every day.  Also, never forget that Math Is Everywhere!  Count, add, subtract and solve word problems daily.  You can also partner with us by joining the Smith School PTA.  This amazing association supports our school activities, trips and so on.  Don’t delay, join today!

We are looking forward to an exciting school year.  It is going to be an honor to watch our Super Sharks swim through the sea of learning and accomplish great things.  Feel free to contact us at any time.  Also, utilize our website for important information throughout the year.  As always, your continued support is greatly appreciated.

With Super Shark Sincerity,
Mrs. Marilyn I. Dunham
