May 30, 1991


The public was invited to say goodbye to a gallant school on May 30, 1991. It was the final day for former students, teachers and staff to walk the halls and visit the classrooms that provided a quality education and provided so many memories for more than fifty years.

These are some of the last photos to be taken of Edison School. They were submitted by Lois Fredericks

Hallway lockers on the second floor for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students.

Edison Gymnasium on the second floor, looking west toward girl's half of the gym. A dividing wall has been removed. This was also the dance floor for Stugen and other school dances. Basketball and other athletic events always drew a crowd (mostly of parents).


Rear of a classroom for 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade. Our coats hung behind the swivel blackboards. When you got to 4th grade on the second floor, you got a locker!

Front of a classroom of the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade class. Built-in cabinet held dictionaries, encyclopedias, paper, paste and supplies.  "Class Rules" on the blackboard include instructions for orderly students:  Work Quietly, Be Polite, Raise Your Hand, Be Prepared, Stay Seated... successful rules for the brighter student.
