Looking for Monroe class of 70-71. Does anyone remember Mrs. Peterson (6th Grade) and Mr. Nelms (6th Grade) first names? Trying to locate students from this class for a get together?
I remember both of those teachers. I belive Mr. Nelms first name was James. He taught 6th grade math, probably the most passoniate and professional teacher I have ever had. I graduated Monroe in 1975

Was that the school, packed with more asbestos than the wtc combined? I guess they weaseled out 1000s of mesothelioma lawsuits, by destroying environmental samples, of the facility's asbestos content.

Check out the Wayne Historical Society for pictures of your old school. I'm sure you can find their number on the web. It might cost you a couple of dollars for pictures, but I bet they have them. Good luck.

I loved growing up in Wayne in the 50s and 60s and buying my first house there in 1980. Too bad the schools have been overrun with people who don't value an education.

I don't know how I stumbled onto this site but glad I did. Mr. Nelms...lol. 6th grade math. I remember Miss Maloney as my first grade teacher, with the mayo jars full of water and food coloring in the window. Mrs. Woodruff, I remember her as the prettiest teacher ever. I actually remember my walk on the first day of school...We actually were able to walk to school as a 5-year old back in the day. Good memories.

not sure why they tore it down
hey anyone remember Mike Dickey? he was the weirdest kid I could ever remember think he moved away
They closed Monroe at the end of the 1994-95 school year, as part of their re-organization. They moved 9th grade back to the HS's that following school year too. The building was then used by the Wayne Police Department for training K9's. In 2003 the school district wanted to re-open it, but the police department never cleaned up after the dogs, so the only thing they could do was tear it down. They sold the land off to developers, who built houses. Such a sad ending to a great place.
