Our Story

Our Mission

The Hayward Smith Elementary faculty and staff believe that all children can learn. We believe it is possible for all students, given the appropriate curriculum, motivation, and supportive environment, to learn when they are emotionally and developmentally ready. We believe it to be our purpose to provide all students with an appropriate education and the opportunity to acquire academic skills while developing socially and emotionally. We readily accept the responsibility for the instruction of students to maximize their potential.

School Profile

Our Highly Qualified staff is committed to the belief that all students can learn if we work together as students, parents, and teachers to accomplish our goals. Our classes generally have twenty-four or fewer students per class. We have one-to-one Chromebooks for students in Grades 1st -5th. In addition, all classrooms are equipped with networked, multimedia computers. We also offer a number of special programs as well as a range of extracurricular activities, including Honor Choir and Safety Patrol, and Running Club.

School Creed

I am a bright child
I am unique and special
There is no one I would rather be than me
Today I have the courage to be the best that I can be
I am responsible for my own actions
I have a brain
I can learn
I am loved
I will succeed

School Song

Hey look us over we're Hayward Smith
We're proud of our school it is the very best
We learn a lot but we still have fun
Whatever our aim, Whatever our goal, We're always number one
You know that we'll keep on striving each and every day 
To be the best kids, we are here to say 
that we are proud of our school our teachers are so fun
Hayward Smith is number one!

Music notes

Smith Teacher Creed

Great ExpectationsI am a teacher. I accept the challenge to be sagacious and tenacious in teaching every student because I believe that every student can learn. I accept the responsibility to create a learning environment conducive to optimum achievement academically, socially, and emotionally. I actively pursue excellence, for my students and myself. I cherish every student. I am a teacher. I change the world, one student at a time.

I Am Somebody

I am somebody.
I was somebody when I came.
I'll be a better somebody when I leave.
I am powerful, I am strong.
I deserve the education that I get here.
I have things to do, people to impress, and places to go.
