  • Sally Bredeman Picture Welcome to the school year! 

    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  For those of you returning to Smoketown, we are excited about your return.  For those of you who are new to Smoketown, we are excited to have you join the Smoketown Community!


    Here at Smoketown, our vision is to be a community where everyone develops strong character and a passion for lifelong learning.  This means we care about the whole child.  We want to provide a safe environment where all students can learn and reach their full potential.  While maintaining high academic and behavioral expectations for our students, our teachers utilize a variety of research-based instructional practices and programs to meet the diverse needs of our community.  We focus on school-wide initiatives to foster positive behaviors and relationships in every setting.


    Additionally, the faculty and staff at Smoketown Elementary are committed to working together in partnership with our parents to ensure students' academic success and developmental growth.  We are blessed to have tremendous parent and community support.  I encourage all parents and community members to visit our school and to become involved.


    On behalf of our faculty and staff, I welcome you to Smoketown Elementary School!  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the school.


    Thanks and have a great year! 


    Sally R. Bredeman, Ed.D.
