Hometown Monday and 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week 45 High School


Hometown Monday and 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History
Week 45 High School


Thanks to GeneaBloggers and Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog for these prompts.


Week 45. High School. Describe your middle and/or high school. Was it a large or small student body? Is the school still in existence today? How has it changed since you went there?

Coon Rapids (IA) High School has now become Coon Rapids-Bayard High School through consolidation with the nearby town down the highway to the east. It still exists, which is a feat in itself, given the rural Iowa location.

Several separate buildings are no longer used by the school, including the building I attended for high school. The school board recently voted to build a new addition on the existing High School/Middle School to include all K-12 grades for both towns and the surrounding rural community on the one site, for long term sustainability.

I maintain a wiki for the use of all classes, through the years, back to 1888.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
