2011: GRICE MIDDLE SCHOOL AT 50 YEARS

Is there any doubt in anyone's mind who is over 60 years old how time flies? 50 years ago, in 1961, Hamilton's two new "middle schools" were opened and changed our local educational process forever. From the relatively rural "K through 8" system which I and many of my contemporaries experienced, to the current system wherein students begin their elementary education in our local grammar schools from "K through 5," then move on to our two middle schools, Grice an Reynolds for "6 through 8," then on to one of our 3 high schools for "9 through 12."
