The PTA is in the process of creating a student directory for all LaPerche families that will come home in family folders before the end of school. A directory is perfect for when you want to reach out to a friend over the summer. If you do not want your child’s name, phone number and family email address included in the student directory, please email Sandra Bazinet at sbazinet [at] smithfield-ps [dot] org (sbazinet [at] smithfield-ps [dot] org) or call the school at 231-6652 by Friday, May 17th. Thank you!
Online Library Catalog
At our last PTA meeting, LaPerche librarian, Jen Swartz, introduced the families to the online library catalog she has created for our school. On our library site, Mrs. Swartz has included links to search engines that are excellent tools for kids; links to World Book Encyclopedia for kids, a magazine search engine, links to typing games, etc… There are many tools students can access from the LaPerche site which can be found at www.ricat.net
. Once the page opens, scroll down to “LaPerche” and click there. If your child is in third, fourth or fifth grade he/she has been taught how to use this online tool so ask him/her to demonstrate it for you! Thank you to Mrs. Swartz for creating the site and then sharing it with us at the PTA meeting.
