Get Involved

Just as any Ed Smith parent or legal guardian is a PTO member, any PTO member can volunteer to strengthen the school community. Getting involved is a great way to learn about the school and your fellow Ed Smith families.

Signature Events

The Ed Smith community gathers for a number of memorable events that we look forward to each year.

  • Ice Cream Social – This back to school event happens a few days before the new school year.
  • Inclusive Talent Showcase – Cheer on our Coyotes as they take the stage to share their talents. From singing and dancing to magic and comedy, it’s a great way to celebrate our students.
  • Ed Smith Art Auction – Bid on art donated by local artists (including Ed Smith parents and guardians just like you) while enjoying great music, food, drink, and conversation. The Art Auction is held bi-annually.
  • The Great Ed Smith Carnival – This is the biggest community event of the school year. Games, prizes, food, bounce houses, and more!
