2017 CMS Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to our CMS Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Lawson. Mrs. Lawson teaches 8th grade Language Arts. She was selected by her peers as the recipient of this great honor.

My School Bucks

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments. There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment. To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.

Information About School Lunches
