Smith PTO

Mission

Oakwood Parent Teacher Organizations exist to build communities of parents and teachers who work together to support the school district’s vision, mission and core values. Each organization operates independently to foster communication and fund programs to enhance the educational, cultural and social environment for all students and families.

Smith Playground Project

In April 2020, a new main playground was installed at  E. D. Smith Elementary through a combination of State, District, and PTO funding, as well as generous contributions from our community members. Over $40,000 was raised in just 6 weeks to complete the project. During the 2020-2021 school year, the Smith PTO raised additional funds to add even more playground equipment. Monkey bars and balance stepping stones will be installed in late July 2021 along the Telford Avenue side. Several picnic tables have also been purchased to create new spaces for outdoor classrooms and creative recess. The PTO is committed to enhancing the school experience for all our students, and we are excited to provide these new playground additions this year.

Directories/Membership

We hope every family will join the Smith Elementary PTO this year! Not only will you be supporting this awesome organization, but your membership allows you to access our online directory.

Our directory is a fantastic resource for family and staff contact information, as well as the school calendar and class rosters.
In order for the directory to be complete, we need you! We need confirmation from ALL Smith Families each year, even if your information hasn’t changed. This ensures the information we have for your family is correct and your authorization allows you to decided what contact information you want to share.

Be on the lookout this summer for an email with easy instructions for how to quickly confirm or update
your family’s information and to purchase your Smith PTO Membership.

If you didn’t receive an email before the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, are new to Smith or have any questions, please
email Ashley Orr at edsmithdirectory@gmail.com.
