One hundred students at Kelley Smith Elementary School got to enjoy a whole day with Ring Master (a.k.a Media Specialist) Suzanne Buckles for reading all 15 Sunshine State Young Reader books! 
Students got a chance to play games like Duck Pond Matching, Fish Bowl, Catch a Ball, Skeeball, Shoot and Score, 
Three In A Row, Disk Drop and more.  Mrs. Veda Crossland dressed as a clown and made balloon animals, rings, and flowers for the children.  There was even a KISSING BOOTH….where the students got a chance to use their skills in guessing how many kisses were in the jar!  Students enjoyed games, prizes, cotton candy, popcorn, hotdogs and chips.  Each child received a goodie bag and a reading medal for their hard work.  

Beginning 2018-2019 School Year

In an effort to refine our plan to ensure the safety of your children, next year Kelley Smith Elementary will be a “wheels only” school. 

Students may be dropped off and picked up through the parent drive through line or delivered via school bus through the bus loop only. 

Parents will be allowed to escort their students to class for the first 4 days of school, August 14, 15, 16 and 17, 2018 only.
