This Day in History: 1958-03-03
In anticipation of the opening of the new Junior-Senior High School in September the Board of Education announced several changes in the feeder schools. The Betsy Ross and Commodore Perry schools were to go back to single sessions. Betsy Ross would house grades one, two, and three, while the kindergarten and grades four through six would attend Commodore Perry. Eleven teachers who had been teaching in grades seven and eight were transferred to the Junior high school. Betsy Ross Principal Rene Buhlman opposed the new arrangement, especially the shuttle bus which was to bring kindergarten pupils from Betsy Ross to Commodore Perry daily.
