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?"
