One hundred and fifty years in Centerville School

From a handful of children who marched to flag raising ceremonies to the beat of a drum to the present day campus which teaches a much different curriculum to hundreds of middle school children, Centerville School (now Centerville Jr. High School) has a rich and varied history. In celebration of its 150 year anniversary, this institution's administration, teachers, parents, students and other interested citizens have assembled a unique collection of artifacts for public viewing.

All are invited to drop by Centerville Junior High School the week of May 5 - 9 to see, feel and touch history. A series of free events will be held to celebrate 150 years of Centerville School. Young lives that grew to become well-known names of the area are featured in roll books of early school days. One of the first Parent Teacher Associations in the state was organized at Centerville School. Mothers rotated the responsibility of home preparation of lunches for students at the rate of three cents! Those who could not afford this cost were provided lunch without charge.
