  • Before and after consolidation part 2

    Most of the former teachers at Buffalo and Magnolia elementary schools who moved to Abraham Lincoln Elementary when the schools consolidated spoke of the small family atmosphere of their former schools.

    Darcy Pruitt, who taught at Buffalo, said, “The teachers knew all the students, the students’ parents and/or grandparents, and the students’ siblings. One teacher could get the opportunity to have every child in a household as his or her student.”
