Alex Smith, son of Sharon and Chris Smith, has been enjoying his year at school so far.
His favorite class is physical education, and his favorite subject is history.

This year, Smith is playing football and baseball for Maplesville. He enjoys playing sports, and he likes being athletic.
Smith was chosen to attend People to People by one of his teachers. Through the program, he traveled to Washington for one week where he spent time studying about government.
