Our School The community of De Motte has caused its school plant to expand and grow with its expanding and growing needs. Some of De Motte ' s senior citizens can remember the steps in its growth from rather humble beginnings and point with pride to the building and its many fine facilities we now en- joy. The first high school work began in September 1914 in a new two story brick building and the first class was graduated in 1918. An addition to the building was made in 1919. Enrollment in- creased, particularly in the lower grades, so that in 1933 it was necessary to erect a two room building north of the main building to house the first and second grades. In 1935, it was possible to add a new west wing to the original building. This included a gymnasium-auditorium, three class rooms, library room, home economics room, assembly hall, lavatories and shower rooms, and a new heating plant. Also the old building was reconditioned. This was done at a cost of about $65, 000, part of which was made available under the Federal Gov- ernment ' s Public Works Administration. The class of 1937 was the first to be graduated from this new building. The community continued to grow and school enrollment increased sharply immediately after World War II, so that in 1956-57 it was again necessary to increase the size of the building. A new south wing was added to house the first six grades. Also included were an excellent gymnasium- auditorium with shower and rest rooms, and new administration room and teachers room. The west wing was completely changed, the upper floor being divided into four large classrooms and hall lockers were added. The lockers were made possible by the P.T. A. The old gymnasium was made into a cafeteria with facilities to serve both elementary and high school. We are very grateful to all those who have made it possible for us to secure an education.
