Hello Smart Intermediate Families,
I am honored to be returning to serve your students and this community as the Principal of Smart Intermediate effective Monday, November 4th. I have been employed by the Davenport Community School District for the past 15 years. During that time I have been a teacher, head coach, and administrator at all grade levels K-12. During this time I was able to serve the Smart school community as an Assistant Principal during the 2017-18 school year. I am looking forward to re-engaging with the families, students, and staff at Smart to ensure all students will feel safe, engaged, and connected in school. This is our #1 priority. In order for students to feel safe we will be implementing new protocols to address respectful verbal, and physical behavioral interactions at Smart Intermediate. At Smart we will SOAR by being respectful of Self, Others, Adults and Resources. In order for students to feel engaged and connected in school we will work to make our instructional practices engaging for ALL students and provide activities at school in order to build a stronger connection with our students and families. I look forward to working with you and your students. Please feel free to contact our school at any time. Read more
We are excited to inform you about the 1:1 chromebook program that Smart Intermediate has moved to this year. It marks the beginning of an era where students will have immediate access to information via their own Chromebook. We hope this initiative will bring the 21st Century to the forefront, as well as engage your children in additional critical thinking, collaboration and communication activities.
This past week, we have checked out a chromebook, charger and bag to each student. The chromebook will be used in the classroom and home for educational purposes. Teachers will vary in their expectations for laptop/chromebook use, but your child will be using this tool for instruction, assignments, projects, research and assessment throughout the day.
As is the case with usage of any school equipment such as textbooks, musical instruments or other school property, you are responsible for any costs associated with the damage and/or loss of the device and responsible to return the device in good working order. If damage does occur, please have your child report it to their SOAR teacher as soon as possible. It is often easier and cheaper to complete a repair as soon as it happens rather than waiting.
Clearly we are making a move to have technology be an integral part of your student’s education and will require that your student has the appropriate technology at school to support his/her learning. This is why we will not be allowing your student to opt out of receiving a Chromebook. Read more

On Saturday, May 11th, we had our 100 Year Anniversary Open House. The event was a huge success. Former students and staff came to tour the school and look at artifacts from years past. Thanks to Davenport Public Library and our principal, Mr. Caparula, we had a ton of materials for people to look through and our Student Senators learned a great deal about their school. Thanks to everyone in attendance!
On Friday, April 12 2019 – 6th Grade students from area schools met to compete in the 6th Grade Math Bee at the AEA in Bettendorf. Representing Smart Intermediate school were Gabriela, Hailey, Aidan, & Ben. These students were trained for participation by Mrs. Janz (the TAG facilitator) and Mrs. Fah (the building coach and interventionist). Aiden & Nickolas served as team alternates and were instrumental in helping prepare the team for competition.
