    We just wrapped up week #3 of the Feed My Starving Children Fundraiser

    We had PJ Day on Friday, 2/24. Many comfy students and staff participated. We raised $130.62 from that day alone!

    Some of our 7th grade students and their social studies teachers presented to the Davenport School Board on Monday, February 27th. They spoke about what they’ve been doing in class and about the Feed My Starving Children Fundraiser at Smart. It was an incredible presentation and the students did an amazing job speaking in front of the Board. It was impressive!
