Added to the south of the present school building, the grade school annex, costing S84,658.86,
will house three classrooms, one multi-purpose room, one office, and lavatories. The multi-
purpose room is designed so that it can be used as a cafeteria by faculty and students.
Deadwood's active P.T.A. has taken the job of furnishing the kitchen. A benefit concert netted
5255.00 as a beginning, and well-patronized candy sales at basketball games have brought in more

The armory-auditorium, costing SZ83,000.00, will be about one block south of the school on the
opposite side of Upper Main Street. Of this sum, the community is providing Sl75,000.00, while
the goverrunent is supplying S108,000.00. The total figure is to cover cost of site, building, and
The building, to be used as a gymnasium by the school and a meeting center for the National
Guard, will seat 2200 for basketball games and will have cooking facilities.
Former board member, Mr. Francis I. Parker, has been the legal counsel for the board in
matters connected with the building plans.
