Dear Smoketree Parents/Guardians:

We recently received our A – F Accountability Profile from the Arizona Department of Education.

Below is the information regarding our Letter Grade that has been assigned by the State of Arizona. This grade is based on the 2016-17 school year AzMERIT assessments.

Smoketree Elementary School
Letter Grade=B

These new letter grades are based on an assessment of more rigorous Arizona standards and will provide a new baseline for our school planning process.

Over the summer, our school conducted a Comprehensive Needs Assessment.  Based on our test results    we identified the following areas of focus for the 2017 school year:

  • Engage in ongoing meaningful and inclusive communication among our families and community
  • Reduce chronic absenteeism / tardies
  • Increase parent involvement
  • Review and optimize curriculum

Annual Test Scores are not the only indicator of school quality. 

During the 2016/17 school year, Smoketree  celebrated many successes, including:

  • First place in Math Olympics for the second year in a row
  • STEM students were awarded two Society Awards
  • One of our Patriotic Club students received a scholarship for her leadership skills
  • Our Student Council modeled ROAR behaviors and leadership throughout the school year.

Our staff is committed to ensuring that all students graduate our school prepared for the future. Our next Site Based Council will meet November 16, 2017. The  agenda will include a review of the first quarter data we have gathered.

Thank you for your continued support.  I look forward to meeting with you and working together to meet our goals!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Hogard, Principal
Smoketree Elementary School
