Went to this school way back in 1960. 5th & 6th grades. I see the name was changed, so much for maintaining historical namesake. Should of named the cafeteria or auditorium for Smith. I also see this is a K-5th grade what happened to the 6th??
Have not lived in LB since grad from Poly in 69 so I’m a tad outta touch of all the changes
