THE NEW OXFORD ITEM, NEW OXFORD, PA., APRIL 10, 1*58 PAGE 8EV13I Lower Adams Pushes Plans On New School (Continued from Page 1) The new elementary school »t New Oxford, built four years ago to handle an expected enrollment of 450 children, is now being used by more than than 630 students. Take Emergency Measures To make room for the overflow attendance, a special educa.ion room has been divided jntc two rooms and storage rooms have been converted into temporary classrooms. Taylor told the board that a census shows 135 new students will enter the Lower Adams system next fall. To help meet the problem of "where to put the students." the system will rent rooms in the Lutheran church at New Oxford, and will move the agricultural department of the high school nexi fall to a brick home on land bought by the school system as a site for its new high school. Room vacated by the agricultural department will be used to help alleviate the overcrowded conditions generally in the present high school. With completion of the new high school, which is designed for 919 pupils, the present high school will be converted into an elementary school thus providing room for the students in the lower grades. Make Up For Lost Days The new high school will have 19 classrooms, auditorium-gymnasium, cafeteria, shops, offices unrt other facilities for a student body of nearly 1,000. At last week's meeting the school board elected Miss Jane Henninger, Pine Grove, who will graduate this spring from Lebanon Valley College, as a primary teacher to take over one of the new grades at the opening of school in September. The board also voted to have school in session on Good Friday until 3:30 o'clock and on Memorial Day in order to "make up" for days lost during February's storms. Children who asked to attend church services Friday afternoon however were excused from school. MBS. BO8A G. MILLER SUCCUMBS SUNDAY Mrs. ROM O. Miller, formerly of David»burg. died at 8:45 un.
