New Kinston School

Two schools in the east are coming together as one.

A dedication for Contentnea/Savannah K-through-8 school was held Friday in Lenoir County.

School system officials say Contentnea, formerly an elementary school, and Savannah, formerly a middle school, needed facility upgrades do the two schools were consolidated into one.

The new facility is just a few miles in between each of the old ones, making it an easy transition for parents as well as for students.

    other than saving money, nothing good comes from combining middle and elememtary schools... another reason to stay away from lenoir county

    In communities like Bath, Jamesville, Bear Grass, Cape Hatteras, Ocracoke, Chicod, Princeton and other close knit areas, twelth graders can go to school with sixth graders or eight graders with kindergartners and we do not have to worry about the safety of the small children. Williamston and some other communities have declared that their twelth graders would present a danger to their sixth graders as a reason that they cannot be in the same building. My advice to communities like Williamston, if Tom Daly is correct on this issue, is to find the root of your problem and fix it, don't try to dilute it.

    So you will have 14 to 15 year olds going to school with the 5 year olds, riding the same buses. Sounds like some little kids will be picked on by some big kids.
