Fort Lauderdale airport while the middle school was being built? Never finished on time. Next up was high school. That wasn't finished on time either. Went to Plantation high school till the middle of 10th grade on double session before South Plantation was finished. Five years at temp schools because they could not keep up with growth and development. At the time, it was never a concern or issue.
What concern are you referring to?
Then again the high school was not finished so we went double session at plantation because South Plantation was not finished till the middle of 10th grade.
Of course double session means you are in school the first half of the day or the second.
The elementary school I went to(1965-69) in Melrose Fl. Was built in 1931. No Air conditioning, big windows and ceiling fans.
And teachers that made you pay attention!
Davie , Horses and Orange Groves..Only M. Donalds with a Horse Hitching area.
Only thing open past 10 pm was a Royal Castle.All the 3 Cops knew it...
First Grad class from Cooper City High..We walked around scaffolding and Concrete trucks all day..
Two outhouses. One for the boys one for the girls. Sears Roebuck catalog for toilet paper.
Hand pump on the well. Which was a big improvement over the rope and bucket.
Pot bellied stove for heat in the winter. That and a thick sweater.
Air conditioning? Didn't know it existed.
And we carried out lunch. Usually some biscuits and jelly. Or cornbread and tomato.
Pickin' cotton, rasin' hell, and bailin' hay
I wudn't born no yestday
Got a good Christian raisin' and an eighth grade education
Ain't no need in y'all a treatin' me this way
Not to mention the bomb shelter under the building.
He was a odd duck.
Had a few classes out under a shade tree due to no A/C, but remember getting to go home due to no heat.
Remember Earnie’s too. Good stuff
