A "Day of Cultural Sharing" was held for fifth grade students of GNA Elementary Center when students became aware of the diversity of our society. Volunteers from the community shared with each class the ideals behind the concept.
Perry A. Clay of the Nanticoke Housing Authority shared ideas of our changing population and the attributes each cultural group offers to the community. Discussions and small group projects helped expand the learning experience for the enthusiastic students.

Mo and Miglia - MOTS MILES - 2006/2007
Mots Miles for wellness and fitness
Each class will be cahallenged to walk 2 miles per week. (You may walk more than 2 miles per week.) For every 2 miles that the teacher walks with his/her class, the class will receive a bonus mile. Eight times around the Kennedy playground equals one mile. At K.M. Smith, 6 laps on the designated course equals one mile.
Teachers will record how many miles the class does per week on a form which will be handed in at the end of the month to the PTA. It is not a record of individual miles per student, rather it is by class. There will be 2 divisions: K-2 and 3-5. At the end of each month, the class which has walked the most miles in each division will receive a $50.00 prize to use for recess equipment for the class. One student in each of the winning classes will also win a special prize. All students in the class will receive rewards.
