The New Building
URING the past seven years the need of a new school building in the bor-
ough of Muncy has been plainly evident and at different times seriously
discussed. This great necessity has been realized by the citizens themselves.
but more especially by the school board, school faculty, students, and others who
are in close enough Contact with the school
condition. As to size, the building is very
school. For the last three years it has been
auditorium into two high school class rooms
to feel its distressing and dangerous
unsatisfactory for the needs of the
necessary to divide the stage of the
which are certainly very undesirable
as such and also to rent two rooms in the local Masonic Building in order to ac-
commodate the increased number of primary pupils.
It was in 1927, the last year of Lester K. Ade's principalship, that these
ous discussions resulted in definite action when the Muncy School Board
chased a twelve acre plot located on East Penn Street. This ground has
claimed by State school authorities to be a fine school site and one of the
ideal in the entire State.
Several years after this first step was taken, a careful survey was made in
order to discover the best means of accommodating the increasing number of stu-
dents in the community. This survey resulted in the consolidation of Muncy
Borough with Muncy Creek Township into a joint school system. The main
reason for this move was the fact that Muncy Creek was also in need of new school
facilities. Other deciding factors were, first, that from all viewpoints it always
had been more financially economic to maintain one large, complete educational
system than to support a few small ones, which in themselves cannot be very
complete, and secondly, the fine roads in use today make transportation one of
the smallest problems which confront a school board.
Now that the site of the building was at hand and the plans for the accom-
modation of the students assured, the next step was in regards with the executive
department. It was finally agreed that the Muncy Borough School Board, and the
Muncy Creek Board consolidate and form a joint School Board.
The members of this board are as follows: President, C. C. Pfleegorg Vice-
President, J. Rollins Ebnerg Secretary, Howard Opp, Treasurer, Geo. M. Brelsfordg
Members: Harold Turner, I. B. Wells, Ray Sprout, Harry Waltman, George
Within the last year all interests have turned to the construction of the edifice
itself. After consultation with the State Department in Harrisburg and others in
position to advise, the Board decided the best plan would be to organize a school
association which would construct the building and make it available for the school
districts' use. Many prominent citizens expressed their interests in this community

endeavor and even a few were willing to form a company, called the Muncy School
The following are members of this corporation: President, Charles Waldrong
Vice-President, Frank Heilmang Secretary, Eugene P. Berting Treasurer, S. B. Wilt,
Members: Milton E. Reeder, Frank H. Smith, Clark Dimm, Dr. H. F. Baker,
The selection of Lawrie and Green as architects for the construction was the
first active step of this new association. After working with the State Depart-
ment, Lawrie and Green submitted the plans for the building and with careful de-
liberations the Board chose the present plan. The majestic edifice is built of beau-
tiful mountain stone and is divided into three wings with a total of fifty-six rooms.
Thirty of these rooms will be used for classrooms and with all modern conveniences
and arrangements which they will have, fuller and more interesting schedules for
studies will be a most improving satisfaction to both teachers and students.
The approximate enrollment of the entire school will be nine hundred, which
is an increase of about five hundred over the present enrollment. The faculty
will be composed of thirty teachers which are evenly divided between the high
school and the grades, fifteen teaching grade subjects and fifteen teaching in the
high school departments.
The courses of study will be three in number, namely, academic, commercial,
and general. The added conveniences and facilities with which the new building
will be equipped, will lend to the fulfilling of more extra curricular activities. For
example, the plans of the gymnasium have already resulted in a change from a one-
hour-a-week Physical Education Class at the present time, to a two-hour-a-week
class. Likewise in the other extra curricular activities, such as Home Economics,
Dramatics, and Music, similar reformations will take place.
The actual construction of the building began in October, 1931, and is ex-
pected to be completed by July 15, 1932. When finished, this edifice will present
an appearance so majestically beautiful, that the citizens of Muncy and surround-
ing districts may once more, justly feel the pride and satisfaction in having
modern educational facilities.
