Since 1930, K.M. Smith has been the go to school for early childhood education. As the final days are winding down at K.M., the teachers and students are excited – and sad. Since K.M. Smith has been around for so long, most of the teachers who grew up in Nanticoke/Newport ended up teaching here, went to school at K.M. Smith.

To celebrate the ending of this school and the opening of a new school, the teachers at K.M. Smith held a bash! The bash included a bounce house, an obstacle course, slushies, pizza, raffles and a lot of games.
