    Due to the dedication and diligence of our Smith Team, the 2020-2021 school year has been a great one! We will continue with our commitment to be one of the best schools in the state. The core business of our school and school system is teaching and learning. For Smith School, that means we will continue to commit to our School Improvement Plan goals and strategies. While focusing on academic content areas, we will also work to ensure that students are learning how to learn, learning how to analyze and prescribe solutions to a task or problem and developing confidence to take risks. As usual, we are excited about our technology integration— interactive white boards and websites, student laptops, electronic email for students, etc. to further student engagement and academic achievement.


    Together, we are working toward moving from being a good school, to a great school as we strive to create a positive and successful experience at Smith School. We encourage everyone to get involved in the fun! We need every member of our school community in order to accomplish this goal.

    Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year Seabees! I am so excited to continue my journey here at Smith. As a former teacher here at Smith, I look forward to continue working with the students, parents, staff and community for the success of ALL students.  I know that we must all work together for students to reach their maximum potential and that education is not only academics, but developing students into positive members of our community.  I am extremely proud to be a Seabee and will continue to work hard ensuring that every child has the best educational experience that he or she possibly can here at Smith. Please feel free to contact me at (336) 570-6140 or at linsey_morganguyette@abss.k12.nc.us.
