Red Smith

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Red Smith Raptors take PRIDE in who they are! 

Red Smith is a 4K through 8th grade school with a growing population of approximately 1,000 students. Located on the eastern shores of the Bay of Green Bay, Red Smith is centered in one of the fastest-growing communities in the area. 

The school is named in honor of Pulitzer Prize winning American Sportswriter Walter Wellesley Smith (1905-1982), also known as “Red” Smith, who was born in Green Bay and graduated from East High School, the original home site of the Green Bay Packers. Smith watched the Packers play their first game at City Stadium in 1919. Their continued success inspired him to write about the love of football from a spectator’s viewpoint and later became one of the most widely-read sports columnists. Red Smith Raptors share in the pride that “Red” portrayed throughout his own life. 

Red Smith School has a strong parent network. Parents are highly active in supporting the school community by volunteering in classrooms, sponsoring both assemblies and family-based activities and attending informational meetings. 

Red Smith teachers and staff are characterized by having a strong belief in students and their learning, collaboratively working with parents/guardians and community members, and being dedicated to the use of best instructional practices to meet the needs of all students. 

Red Smith School offers a variety of co-curricular activities (athletics, clubs and intramurals) to enhance students’ academic and social leadership skills. All students are welcome to participate upon meeting age and grade requirements.

If you would like more information about Red Smith School or would like to schedule a site visit, please call the main office at (920) 391-2425 or email me at wjbirkholz@gbaps.org .  

Go Raptors!
