    I use to go to this school in the early seventies and really enjoyed it. The teachers were extremely fun such as Ms. Starleaf, Ms. Dubin, and Mr. T. I started to really think about this wonderful place when my dad passed away a couple days ago. His name is Dale Farris, he was the individual that started the flag football program there. I was just curious if they still had that great program. I truly hope so because it taught sportsmanship, honor, respect, and team spirit. In short, a sense of community pride. Please, I would be extremely greatful if someone would inform of this program's lifespan. Thank you very much, I truly appreciate any information abailable. -- Stephen D. Farris
