Message from Principal Tiliano

  • Sheila Tiliano Welcome to Arthur H. Smith Elementary! 

    My name is Sheila Tiliano and I am the building principal. When your child attends our school, I know they are going to get an amazing opportunity.

    First, at Smith school we believe building relationships comes first. Your child will be surrounded by role models who will take the time to get to know them and build positive relationships that will create a sense of belonging and safety here at our school. This begins on the first day of school and will continue throughout their career at Smith.
    We also emphasize character building and respectful behavior. For anybody who has ever visited our school, you will notice students make you feel welcomed and acknowledge you. We have monthly character assemblies and honor positive behavior, attendance and good deeds. It is my hope that these qualities emphasized and reinforced at school will also be displayed at home and in our community.
    We continue to partner with parents to support student learning. Parents are making sure that every night their child has the opportunity to enjoy a book, review homework and sign their student planner. Attendance continues to increase at Open House, family nights, and PACT days. This is making a positive difference! 
    The strong partnerships and commitment amongst staff, students and parents continues to build student success! More than ever students are prepared to succeed and their level of confidence in the classroom is clear and evident.
    I invite you to visit our learning community and observe great teaching and learning.
    Sheila Tiliano
