History wise , we're probably not that far off

December 23, 2021 05:10PM
our town was founded in 1895 , we just had our quasquicentennial this summer , it was suppose to be last summer but was canceled because of covid , so this year we celebrated our 125+1 celebration

size wise , well , we're a little different ..............lol

our current school building was built in 1904

but we had a smaller school building before that

it was tough , making that first name change after 90 some years

but unlike yours ,

it wasn't one of those things that happened just over night

it was one of those things , where at one time every small town in Iowa had their own school , but by the 80's and 90's class room sizes stared to get smaller as well , and the state just could no longer afford to keep all these small schools open

and when I was in school , they always said that schools with less then 300 students k-12 would be closing , for several years we always stayed above that 300 student mark , but just barely , we flirted with it for several years , my graduating class had 32 kids , and we were one of the larger classes

so talk about closing our school was in the air for several years , we all knew it was coming

although , technically , they never actually closed our school , but the school building I went to hich school in , is now the element / middle school building

but they've really have updated it since I was in school , they've pumped a lot of money into the building , what used to be the weight room / wresting practice facility , has now been converted into even more class room , it's actually a lot nicer now , then when I was in school

but whats still weird , is that after all these years , when I was in school , our colors were Red and Black , and even though I've been in the school several times over the years , I'll still never get used to seeing in painted in Black and Purple , which is our school colors now

when I was in school , I was a Tiger

but my daughter went from being a Raider , to a Knight , to what we are now , the Titans

we've gone from Black and Red , to Black and Silver , to Black and Orange , to Black and Purple , confused smiley

the reason for our name change is much different then yours , ours was more economics , and a sign of the times

your's is because some guy has a wild hair up his Censored Smiley
