This building not only holds our memories from the 5th thru 8th grades, but for many of our parents who attended Sheridan schools, this building was their high school building. Think about it - our 8th grade hall (the front hall) was my dad's senior hall. In fact - you won't believe this - when I was in the 8th grade, I found my dad's old class schedule from his senior year. At the top of his schedule was his locker number - #742. Check it out - my locker that year was #742!
This was also a special building because it marked our transition from a single classroom school day to a 6 period schedule. Remember the horror stories we were told about moving up to the middle school? Also, entering our 7th grade year in this building introduced us to our dear East End friends. They began attending the Sheridan campus our 7th grade year in this building.
This is one of the only color photos I've come across of the building. This was a two page spread at the front & back of one of my dad's yearbooks.
If this was the middle hall, then the first room to the right would've been Mrs. Yancey's science class. If this is the front hall, then that room would be Mrs. Allen's english class.
