Text in the card reads, "Mr.s Fischer, DATCU salutes you, your staff, the students and their parents for the Blue Ribbon award for excellence that you recently earned. I know how very proud all of you must be--and rightly so. This took lots of hard work and dedication on everyone's part and that will make the award even sweeter. Congratulations! Now some might say that I was bias because my son, Bret, teaches at Strickland -- and maybe that is true. You have a great school! Sincerely, Judy Warnack"

It appears the information may have been collected from Reed Jackson. Text on the paper reads, "11-7- Reed Jackson 387-7344 Strickland opened for the 1968-69 school year. Closed lab school at end of '68 school year. All 7th graders were at Calhoun (Congress) for 68-69 in what is now the math building. All 8th & 9th graders at Strickland for '68-69. For 69-70 school year, Congress re-opened fully & district split grades 7, 8, 9 between the two schools. Reed says west wing was moved into at beginning of year - but library move could have been later. West wind addition, including library 1984 or 1985?"
