Clothing Donations Needed – We are asking for your help in collecting a few clothing items to keep in the office for emergencies. We are looking for elastic waist pants such as, sweat pants or jogging pants are preferred. The most commonly used sizes are 6 through 10. Also looking for t-shirts and sweatshirts in sizes 6 through 10.


Parking Lot:  Please do not park in the drop-off (Kiss & Go) lane in front of the school before or after school.  In the morning, this lane is to be used for parents to drop off their children and move ahead so the next car can do a drop-off.  Please note, the lot has been repainted this year with all lanes gong the same way.  You will have to exit the lot if you wish to change lanes.


Medication –If your child requires any prescription or non-prescription medication during the school year, a parent or guardian must bring the medication in to the Smith Office to drop it off and complete the necessary paperwork. School Board Policy states that children are not allowed to transport medication.

FYI- Each school building in the Fowlerville Community School District has a Child Study Team / Response to Intervention process in place, which is a vehicle for staff members to review student performance, concerns, and collaboratively develop interventions. If you have concerns about your child’s development and are interested in more information on special services, contact his/her building Principal.

Do you have new and/or gently used books that you are looking to get rid of?  We will take them! At the end of the 19-20 school year, we will be holding a Used Book Sale.  All funds raised will go toward replacing lost/damaged books and the purchase of new books for our students and the Smith library.

Please drop off any donated books to the Smith Elementary Library or the Smith Office.  Thank you! Any questions please email Mrs. Day at
