Congratulations Smithfield Elementary!
The city of North Richland Hills has named our school a winner of its Green Campus Award for the 2012-2013 school year. The program rewards schools that provide environmental education programs & work to beautify their school grounds. The school will receive a check to be used for future beautification projects and we'll also receive a sign to be displayed on our campus. Thank you to Tami Copeland, our 2012-2013 PTA Environmental Chairperson, for leading the way!
