Smithson Craighead Academy School News
Best of Show awards ceremony for the Art of Racing program at Fairgrounds Speedway, June 2009.
We at Smithson Craighead Academy are pleased to join in cooperation with the Motorsports Institute in the Read to Race reading motivation program and the Art of Racing schoolwide art competition. Our intent is to involve the community in helping to motivate young learners to read by encouragement and a reward system. In addition, we want to help introduce minority students from our school’s population to the sport of racing.
Each child and classroom will participate in the program at Smithson Craighead Academy, which includes approximately 243 students from grades kindergarten through fourth. We will make the commitment to boost the program and encourage students to participate to the best of their ability level. We look forward to sharing in the experience.
