GRESTON SCHOOL -
The public school of Creston was founded in 1876, sixty-five
years ago. Glasses were first held in a one-room, . e'o' one-story
building. Through the generosity of some public-Spirited citizens
of Creston, money was obtained to build a second story for a high
school. Still later, two more rooms were added. The main part of
the present building was constructed in 1915, and the ends and
gymnasium were added in 1923.
At an early time in its history the school had only five mem?
bers on the faculty, four for thergrades, and just one for the en-
tire high school, In contrast, the faculty today consists of sev-
en grade teachers, eight high school teachers, and two partftime
The first class to graduate was the class of 1890, with ssix
members. The smallest class was that in l898 with only three mem-
bers, The largest group was the class of 1933 with 39 graduates.
Today, the thirtyhroom.school building of Creston is a very
busy place. It reminds one of a factory, with a 6-hour day, and
a five-day week, pouring out material for America's Democracy.
One finds the following in a constant buzz of activity:
55 First Graders
27 Second Graders
4O Third Graders
41 'Fourth Graders
48 Fifth Graders
40 -Sixth Graders
45 Seventh Graders
37 Eighth Graders
4 Bus Drivers
