I attended this school back in late 1950's and have fond memories. They provided a high quality education.

I also was at the dedication when Herbert Hoover delivered the dedication. I don't remember the year but I think it was 1950 or 1951. They had not yet planted the grass and we stood in some muddy soil which everyone later tracked into the brand new school!

I was in the first class when it was a new elementary school and at the dedication when President Hoover spoke.
