This is perfect for a person in childcare/education!
We are looking for someone interested in living in our attached apartment for free in exchange for childcare. We’re offering a nice and comfortable apartment with separate kitchen, bath and entrance that can also come furnished. Utilities are included and the individual would have access to the large yard and pool. The house is located just ½ mile from downtown and walkable to Smith College.
We have three children ages 3.5 and 1.5yrs and one that is brand new. The oldest child, Adelaide, is in preschool for 3 full days a week. I, Megan, stay home with the kids. However, with the new baby I will need help with childcare, particularly on Mondays and Wednesdays when the oldest isn’t in school. Ability to help with the kids in the afternoon would be great too so that I can pick the oldest up from school and make dinner. The schedule will be flexible to fit the school or work commitments that this person has.
We would love to find someone who is a comfortable fit with the family, has interest in engaging the kids in play and art or running around outside and can commit to staying with us through the summer. The ideal candidate would have school or other work as this is not a full time position, enjoy being around kids and who is looking for a great free place to live.
If you are interested, please email or call me and we can work out a time to meet and discuss what we are looking for further.

The polls are open!!! Cast your vote for next years class cabinet and SGA. Follow this link, it only takes 30 seconds! And just so everyone is aware, there have been some problems with voting for the Ada Class. We are technically supposed to get two votes for the class co-president, and the site is not allowing us to do this. We only have two people running for co-president so this should not be a problem, but please let us know if you have any issues with the voting site.
Also, pick up your Ada merch tomorrow from 10am-3pm in the Campus Center Lower Level!!!Filed under Notices | Comments Off
If you are hungry for something before you head to class, stop by and have a bite to eat.

When: 8 am – 930 am

The Parent Aide Program of Hampshire County is seeking qualified volunteers. We are looking for mature, empathic, and dedicated women to work with families who are asking for support.
The Parent Aide Program needs volunteers like you to reach out to Hampshire County parents living in stressful situations.

Smith Medalist Alice Ladas asked everyone to contact your Senator by phone, letter or email and tell them to KEEP FUNDING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD!!! Since the late 1940s, Alice Ladas has been a passionate advocate for educated childbirth, breastfeeding and women’s sexuality.
The House voted on Friday, 2/18/11, in favor of a proposal to ban all federal funding for Planned Parenthood and to eliminate a program known as Title X, which provides aid for family planning and reproductive health.

Dear Off-campus Ada Comstock Scholar:
I am happy to announce that Smith has a late holiday present for all Adas living off-campus without a campus meal plan.
Smith will enter 10 meals on your OneCard to be used between January 30 and April 29, 2011, the last day of classes. In addition to the 10 meals, you are invited as a “guest” to the Rally Day brunch and to the Collaborations lunch on April 16. Graduating Adas are invited to the some Commencement activity meals, including 2 guest tickets for the luncheon held after Commencement. (More information regarding these annual campus events will be available in coming weeks)
Classroom discussions often continue over meals along with networking and socializing. The Ada Study Group convened a year and a half ago by President Christ determined that all Smith students would benefit from more Ada-trad interaction outside the classroom and consequently, Dean of Enrollment Audrey Smith has offered to fund the meal option for this spring. If well-received, the College will offer a limited number of meals at a reduced rate in the off-campus Ada student budget in the future.
Information providing menus, nutrition information and meal serving hours are available on the Smith dining web site: www.smith.edu/diningservices If you have any dietary issues or allergies, please be in touch with Kathy Zieja at firstname.lastname@example.org
To “check in” to a dining room you will need to swipe your OneCard and ask the checker push the Off Campus Meal Plan button first and then swipe your Onecard. If a checker is not at the station, please follow the honor system, and press the Off campus button yourself and then swipe your Onecard. Meals not used by April 29 will expire.
I hope you will enjoy your meals on campus. We will be seeking feedback on this program at the end of the semester and determine whether it should be continued. Please let me know if you have any comments, suggestions or questions.
Welcome back and have a great semester.

You are encouraged to think about adding the one-credit IDP 102 course, “Thinking Through Race,” to your course program for the spring. IDP stands for Interdepartmental Programs in Smith’s curriculum. IDP courses are listed towards the end of the departmental and program entries in the Smith College Catalogue and alphabetically in the on-line catalog. The course also has an optional one-credit discussion section, IDP 103.
The course addresses a number of questions, such as — Is race real? Where did the idea of race come from? Why has racism been so pervasive and enduring in American history? How has racism been structured into American legal and economic systems? Is ‘diversity’ a solution to inequality? In “Thinking Through Race” students will explore these and other conceptual and historical questions regarding race with Smith faculty from a range of disciplines.
The course meets once a week for a faculty lecture, by different members of the faculty, from February 2nd until March 30th on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. In addition, students may also register for an optional, weekly discussion section. These all meet on Thursday afternoons from 3 to 4:50 pm and will be co-led by Smith staff members who have been trained in inter-group dialogs.
