PLW SOUND MODULE AT MT. PLEASANT

First graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary school have been learning about sound through the Project Lead The Way Light and Sound module.

The students learned that to hear a sound, something must vibrate. They observed a demonstration and learned that sound travels in waves. Students then applied what they’ve learned about vibration and how sound travels as they communicate across a distance using cup phones.

Impressive!

The Smithtown Beach Clean-Up at Sunken Meadow State Park was a huge success this past Saturday.

More than 100 people came out representing every school in the district! Students and teachers acted as citizen scientists, picking up 192 pounds of trash and documented what kind it was. That information will be added to the database that follows trends in trash.
Thank you to Lauren Hoffman, HSW teacher and Environmental Club advisor, who organized the day with her club. AMSEAS (Atlantic Marine Conservation Society) and the Smithtown Green Team was there with buckets and pickers and gloves.
Lots of Smithtown pride represented!

Kindergarten and first grade students at Mt. Pleasant Elementary got some magical tips this morning at Steve Luker's Fire Safety Magic Show. Students learned the importance of having smoke detectors, knowing room exits, avoiding too many plugs in an outlet, never playing with matches and "stop, drop and roll."
The show is part of Mr. Luker's continued effort to educate the youth of America to combat the danger of hazardous fire.

During Art with Mrs. Lindom, MTP fifth graders got creative. Students designed artwork that symbolizes the spirit of MTP for the front of the 5th grade t-shirts. Students voted for the top 5 five designs.

Mrs. Lindom then made the winning design "camera ready" and then it's off to the print shop with Emilia's design on the front and the students signatures on the back!

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN BANNER thumbnail228276
SMITHTOWN 2027 STRATEGIC PLAN

We are very proud to present the Smithtown 2027 Strategic Plan to the school community. For the past 20 months, two Stakeholder Planning Teams consisting of students, parents, community members, and District staff have worked to identify the goals that will guide the district for the next five years. The initiative began with the development and administration of a survey to gather the thoughts and opinions of the entire Smithtown school community. We were very pleased and thankful that well over 4,000 people took the time to complete the survey. The results of these surveys served as the baseline for developing the strategic plan and the district’s revised mission, vision, beliefs, and goals moving forward.
The five strategic goals guiding us into the future are:
• Academic Achievement and Growth for Each Student
Our students are provided high-quality instruction and support to ensure the academic growth of each student and prepare them to succeed in their chosen path beyond high school.
• Student Belonging and Well-being
Our students are provided a safe and supportive environment and demonstrate skills and attributes to cope with life challenges and achieve personal well-being.
• Positive Working Environment and Staff Engagement
Our staff feel valued, are fully invested in students’ success, and feel that they receive the support they need to be highly effective employees.
• Stakeholder Involvement and Community Collaboration
Our families and community members are valued and collaborative partners in promoting student success.
• District and School Effectiveness and Efficiency
Our resources are maximized to achieve our strategic goals and provide efficient and cost-effective operations, systems, and services.

More information on strategies and actions to achieve these goals, as well as how we will measure success, can be found in the full strategic plan. You can access the 2022-2027 Smithtown Central School District Strategic Plan HERE.
