History / Biographical
Smithers Elementary School, also known as Smithers Public School, was built circa 1915 as a two-room, two-storey building on Third Avenue South. Two more rooms were later added to create an L-shaped building. The school taught grades one through seven. It was used as a temporary hospital during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. Another two-storey building was later constructed on the same grounds by the local contractor, Ernie Hann. In the early 1950s the original building was demolished and replaced with a new eight-room school, renamed Muheim Memorial Elementary in 1959 after the School District’s first secretary, Alex Muheim. New facilities, including a gymnasium, four new classrooms, a staff room, and a library, have since been added, with the whole school receiving a renovation in 1979.
